A micro pub in Mapperley has today pulled its first pints after opening its doors following a major renovation.
The Blues Dawg has now taken over what used to be the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance shop on Woodborough Road.
Anticipation has been building for the unveiling of the new pub since plans were announced for the new venture back in the summer.
Our photos provide a glimpse of what customers can expect from the latest addition to the Mapperley bar scene.
The brains behind the new operation is Ralph Glover.
Ralph has combined his passion for blues music and also love of dogs to create the Blues Dawg’s distinctive theme.
Although Ralph has been involved in the micropub business before, this is his first solo venture.
He told Gedling Eye: “I am from the local area and was always surprised that Mapperley hadn’t got a micropub already as they are quickly springing up all over Nottingham.
“When the right property became available, I thought the time was right to launch the first one up here and offer something a bit different to the great bars and pubs we already have.”
“I hope people really like the pub as it’s really intimate. We’ll be putting on live music regularly and we’re also dog friendly too. We offer discount to CAMRA Members.”
The Blues Dawg will be open six days a week fro Tuesday to Sunday. Doors open at 12pm each day and close at 11pm each evening.
