Year of the Dog Pug Cafe coming to Manchester

On Sunday 4th March let Pug Cafe take you on a voyage to China to celebrate YEAR OF THE DOG 🎊

Pug Cafe + The Pen and Pencil have teamed up to invite the pugs and pug crosses of Manchester and the North West (and their humans) to celebrate Chinese New Year – Year of the Dog 🐾

This is the most talked about Pug Paw-ty in town and what better what to celebrate Chinese New Year than with one of China’s oldest dog breeds – the PUG!

The pug was the prized pet of the Emperors of China, and lived in luxurious accommodation, and even given the same status as their wives – they were spoilt and treated like royalty! We would love to celebrate this by inviting all the pugs in the North West to our fabulous Year of the Dog event this year.

If you’re a proud PUG or PUG CROSS owner (pugs, jugs, pugzus, pugaliers and more all welcome) make sure you bring your curly-tailed pals to the famous Pug Cafe so they can celebrate Year of the Dog, meet lots of new friends and tuck into some delicious doggy treats. PUG LOVERS also welcome!

We’ll be celebrating Year of the Dog with a very special Pug Cafe – look forward to a beautiful Chinese-themed New Year venue, Chinese-inspired doggy treats and plenty of chances for your pug to party with their new friends at our PUG PARTY!

There will be a whole menu dedicated to pugs for pugs so make sure they’re on a treat day because there will be delicious pupcakes, dognuts, fortune cookies and lots more.

Every Pug Cafe will be serving their PUGUCCINOS for free but with an oriental twist!

As for the humans, while your pug is having a great time meeting new friends, you’ll get to celebrate in style at The Pen and Pencil – where there will be a delicious food on offer with a few Chinese-inspired treats and plenty of cocktails – come and enjoy a taste of the orient!

The Pen and Pencil is a stylish and welcoming cafe-bar in Manchester’s iconic Northern Quarter, and for this day only between 10am-6.30pm it will be transformed into the famous Pug Cafe.

If you don’t have your own pug then don’t fret, Pug Cafe invites pug lovers to the the biggest New Years pug paw-ty in town. This is the perfect opportunity to get involved with some pug-loving and meet a whole grumble of pugs and lavish them with lots of love!
