Venue One and Kate Walters Events are proud to present a new live music and club venue in Coventry city centre. Building on the foundations of the legendary venue Dog & Trumpet which played host to the likes of The Specials and Dr Feelgood in the 70’s, The Dog is a modern space for diverse music of high quality. We have refurbished the venue considerably to make it into an atmospheric underground bar/venue.
There is something for everyone from international DJ’s playing through until 3am on Friday evenings, folk sessions on Thursdays, Funk and Soul and live bands on Saturdays, and jazz on Sundays, and our free entry Wednesday nights with DJ’s and live bands playing roots, reggae, Motown, funk and soul. The Dog is committed to supporting new music, old music, and give a platform for local talent as support slots for our headliners or as promoters.
The Dog has an excellent soundsystem and a well stocked bar of good value drinks, including cocktails. A 300 capacity venue and are committed to giving audiences something different each week at reasonable ticket prices. The Dog has a no-nonsense door policy and do not encourage heavy drinking or harmful behaviour. They are all about the music.
Open throughout the day seven days per week and run a full programme of shows from Spring 2013 onwards.
Venue One is working in collaboration with Kate Walters Events, an enterprise which held a three year residency at London’s Southbank Centre programming contemporary music shows from audiences of 100 to 1000.
