So, if you’re a proud Pug owner (or just LOVE them!) make sure you bring your sassy little fur babe to this exciting pop up to meet lots of new friends, mingle and rub paws with lots of other pugs, tuck into delicious doggy treats, get down on it on the dancefloor and help spread those feel good post-lockdown vibes. Come on TEAM PUG… let’s make this the most puggin’ fabulous day ever!
Revolucion de Cuba is a lovely big venue with doors on either end so we can allow a through breeze and lots of fresh air to sweep through. Making it safer during these times! But don’t worry, we have heavy-duty dog gates to make sure it’s safe for your dog to be off lead. Perfect.
This is the ultimate feel-good event for all pugs, their owners and dog lovers alike. We all know how much pugs love to meet other pugs so why not treat them to their Best Day Ever. An exciting day out, lots to sniff and explore on the journey there, a land full of treats and zoomies with their fellow pug-kind AND a whole lot of attention and fuss from our pug-loving guests. Its a pug’s dream!
We’ve also allowed for more space at this event by limiting numbers so your pup will have more room to explore and play.
If your sweet little velcro pug has been by your side throughout this year, treat them to a visit to the original and best Pug Cafe™ – with a super fun and exciting DISCO-twist. We have so many returning guests to our events because they have the time of their lives. We have a saying here… if the pugs are happy, everyone’s happy!
You can bring any well-behaved pug (or just the right side of naughty!) – big or small, pedigree or mixed breed, puppy or golden oldie. We love all pugs and so mixed breeds are more than welcome to join the paw-ty. Just let us know when ordering your tickets what type of yours is.
THE BEST THING IN ALL THIS?
You don’t need to own a pug to come and enjoy lots of puggy cuddles, snorts and licks. So whether you have previously had a pug and miss them so, or you long for your own … or just love love love them, this is the event for you. Imagine being in a room full of off-lead pugs all wanting lots of love and attention. There’s no happier place!
Our dog cafes have had rave reviews from the likes of Time Out, The Telegraph, Lad Bible and more… it’s official, we host the biggest and the BEST experience for any dog lover! Our last event in Reading was a total sell-out so don’t miss out. Its the perfect present for your dog-loving friend or partner. Just check out our event videos and the one below to get excited for your visit…
We will be at Revolucion de Cuba on the Sunday 5th September and the day will be organised into 80 minute time slots. After listening to previous feedback we have extended the session times! They now start at 10am, 12.40pm and 3.20pm.
Your tickets cover entry to this event only but your pug will get a free new and improved Puguccino™ worth £3.50 and they are welcome to do the sniff test and choose from a host of tasty toppings including pink pupcorn sprinkles, doggy jazzies, blueberries and more.

All well-behaved pugs are welcome, but there are some doggy do’s and dont’s:
