If you’re in London this May, you could make some new Pomeranian puppy friends, because a new pop-up cafe dedicated to the fluffy dogs is coming to the Happenstance, a bar and restaurant overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral.

Dog cafés, both pop-up and permanent ones, have been becoming popular destinations for both tourists and locals alike all over the world. New York City opened its first dog café in 2017, and one sought-after dog café in Thailand houses over 20 huskies for visitors to play with.

The Pom Café, which was created by Pug Café (an organization that also creates similar events for pugs across the U.K.) is cordially inviting Pomeranian owners and Pom-enthusiasts to join them for an afternoon of playtime and treats, as well as free Puppacinos and gifts for the dogs, The Metro reported.

The café will feature small dog-friendly snacks like pupcakes, dognuts, pupcorn, and pawsecco, to name a few, the Metro reported.

Human guests also get their fair share of free snacks, too, including two free cupcake, according to the event website. Plus, you’ll get to hang out with dogs on a nice, spring day. Who could ask for more?

The café is sponsored by Universal Pictures UK to celebrate the upcoming movie, “Secret Life of Pets 2,” opening May 24, according to the Metro and the event website. The event is in honor of the movie’s Pom resident, Gidget the Pomeranian.

“We are known for organizing fun and safe events for small breeds having already hosted pop-ups for pugs, Dachshunds and French bulldogs,” said Anushka Fernando, the organizer behind Pug Café to the Independent. “It's very important to us that all our events are safe and enjoyable for dogs and humans.”

The pop-up will be split into two, 70-minute sessions in the afternoon on May 12, one beginning at 12:30 p.m. and the other beginning at 4:15 p.m.

Even if you’re not a Pomeranian owner, you can still come to the event, though it may cost a little more. Tickets for Pom-owners are £10 (about $13 USD), and £14 (about $18 USD) for anyone without a dog.

The Pug Café will also be hosting a Pomeranian event in Manchester on May 24.
