What's On

A pop-up cafe filled with hundreds of sausage dogs is back in Manchester this month

Talk about a "sausage mad day".

Are you a big dachshund fan? Love seeing lots of little sausage dogs in the same place? Looking for your little pup to make some sausage friends?

Well, you’re in luck, as the Dachshund Pup Up Cafe is back later this month.

After what can only be described as a smash-hit success when it first visited our city back in 2018, the dachshund pop up cafe – or we should say ‘pup up cafe’ – is returning to Manchester, and is set to fill another popular city centre venue with so many sausage dogs.

Last year, over 200 dachshunds visited the cafe to join in on the fun.

And this year is expected to be no different, as dozens of sausage dogs and their owners are all set to descend on Lola Lo in Manchester city centre in a couple of weeks time.


The Dachshund Pup Up Cafe has managed to secure the whole venue for all the dogs to roam free and enjoy some wholesome fun in a safe space.

Sausage dog owners and dachshund fans can mingle with many furry little friends, take part in a range of activities, and stock up on dachshund-related goodies, while the pups themselves get to enjoy unlimited dog treats and free puppuccinos, and play to their heart’s content with other sausages.


Up to 50 sausage dogs will be allowed per session.

It sounds like it’s going to be a jam-packed day to remember, so luckily, there’ll be a dedicated photographer snapping pictures of each session.

If you fancy joining The Pup Up Cafe for “a sausage mad day”, then tickets will set you back £9.50 if you’re a sausage dog owner, and £15 if you’re just a dachshund fan who’s keen to go along for the fun anyway.


The Dachshund Pup Up Cafe will arrive in Manchester on Saturday 30 September from 10am-1:30pm, with different morning and afternoon sessions during the day.
