We love The Hairy Dog. Still one of the best music venues in the country" - Laurie Vincent (Slaves)
Since opening the doors in 2012 The Hairy Dog has become a favourite port of call on the UK touring circuit.
The Hairy Dog has made a name for itself having played host to bands such as Slaves, Sleaford Mods, The Blockheads, Cockney Rejects, Old Firm Casuals, UK Subs, Suburban Legends, Unearth, Shadows Fall, The Acacia Strain and hundreds more.
2016 saw the opening of our new 500 capacity venue room, with an impressive new stage, p.a lighting rig, cloak room and most importantly our new bar. The venue is now all on ground level to make access easier.
The main bar is open every day from 5pm all the way until 3am.
It has become a safe home for Derby's alternative culture and is always loud, lively and accommodating to all.
