Pop Up Pug Cafe

Guildford played host to the first ever Pop Up Pug Cafe and I went along for Eagle Radio to cover the day.
The cafe's founder, Anushka told Eagle Radio, that she started a Pug Meet Up in Stoke Park about 6 months ago as a way to socialise with other pug lovers and owners in the area. The idea for the cafe came from there.
Due to a the power of social media, what started as a local event with 100 attendees soon grew to a viral hit and the Facebook event had over 2,000! In the end, they booked in 290 people and 130 pugs across the day. 
The Pop Up Pug Cafe was held at Esquire's Cafe in Guildford where the team had produced an organic dog friendly menu including, 'woofins' and 'pug cakes'.
Each pug that attended also got their own 'pugaccino' with their individual names on.
The cafe had been decked out with pug themed art from local creators as well as personalised poloroids of each pug that was attending the event.
