A pop-up French bulldog café is zooming its way to St Paul’s next month.
We’re all yapping with excitement, because heaven is now a place on earth. We’ve had the pug café, we’ve had the dachshund café, but now Frenchies are following in their pawsteps, as they’re finally getting their moment in the spotlight… for one day only.
The pop-up will pop up at the Happenstance in Paternoster Square on Sunday 9th September, opening its doors to Frenchies, Frenchie owners, and Frenchie lovers alike. The menu will feature the likes of paw-ty rings, pupcakes, dognuts, bark-scotti, pawsecco, and other tasty punnery from Rudi’s – as well as a free pupuccino, just for being a good doggo. Meanwhile, humans can enjoy a selection of cocktails and light bites, and, you know, being surrounded by numerous floofs.
You don’t have to own a French bulldog to attend, either – you can just pup along and pet other peoples’ pooches. Check out the dachshund cafe’s Instagram page to see what you can expect from the day, and stalk the (slightly stretched and sausage-like) clientele.
Location: The Happenstance, 10 Paternoster Square, EC4M 7DX. Nearest station is St Paul’s. See it on Google Maps.
Opening hours: from 10am on Sunday 9th September. A ticket entitles you to a 70 minute time slot, starting from 10am, 11.10am, 12.20pm, 1.30pm, 2.40pm, 3.50pm, or 5pm.
Entry: tickets cost £10 for frenchie owners, £15 for frenchie-less frenchie lovers, and kids under five (and frenchies themselves, obvs) get in for free. Bookings will open on Saturday 18th August at 10am sharpish – and that’s exactly what you’ll need to be as tickets tend to go fast. Look out for two secret email addresses that will be released on the Frenchie Café’s webpage. You’ll need to send them your name, contact number, the total number of dachshunds and humans attending, as well as your 1st and 2nd preferences for time slots.
