According to Metro, London’s Pug Cafe is hosting a special Christmas cafe for pugs, Pomeranians, and dachshunds on Dec. 8 in the trendy Shoreditch neighborhood. This one-off event is open to everyone, even dog lovers who currently don’t have a dog, though the cafe is breed-specific.

The creators of Pug Cafe – as well as Pom Cafe and Sausage Dog Cafe – have teamed up with Pet Teezer, a company that creates grooming products for dogs, to bring this holiday-themed meet up at The Allegory, according to Metro.

This ultimate holiday dog cafe will feature complimentary puppacinos, pawsecco, and champaws for the dogs as well as snacks for their human companions, including a seasonal menu of cocktails. Dogs will be able to chow down on pup-friendly mince pies, canapés, and pupcakes while humans dine on Cuban-inspired food as well as cakes and other holiday fare.

Dog owners will also receive a Dog Lover’s bag of treats, and the first 350 to book a spot will receive a complimentary Pet Teezer brush (a £12, or about $15 value). Pug Cafe’s grooming expert, Daniela Forshaw, will also be in attendance to help dogs who are in need of a trim.

Tickets for the event are £12 (about $15 USD) for dog owners and guests and £15 (about $19 USD) for dog lovers without a pet, according to the Pug Cafe website. Tickets for children under 16 are £6 (about $8 USD) for dog owners and £8 (about $10 USD) for dog lovers. The dogs themselves can enter for free.

Bookings are only for 80-minute time slots for specific breeds, according to the Pug Cafe website. Time slots are:

10 a.m. and 12:40 p.m. for Pomeranians.

11:20 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. for Dachshunds.

3 p.m. and 4:40 p.m. for Pugs.

To book a spot, send an email to the email addresses listed on the Pug Cafe website (specific to breed) and include your name, your dog’s name(s), the total number of humans (specifying children 16 and under), and your preferred time slot. Humans may bring up to four dogs.

There are also Christmas cafes for pugs, Pomeranians, French bulldogs and dachshunds in Newcastle and Southhampton.
