The Hairy Dog

Since opening the doors in 2012 The Hairy Dog has become a favourite hairy dogport of call on the UK live music touring circuit, playing 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.

It has become a safe home for Derby’s alternative culture and is always loud, lively and accommodating to all.

2016 saw the opening of a new 500 capacity venue room, all on ground level to make access easier.
