Every Sunday from 5 May for 8 weeks, dog lovers can head to a range of city centre bars to enjoy exclusive drinks for themselves and their pooches. The event is being sponsored by Tito's Handmade Vodka, who support dog-friendly events around the world.
The hub for the Leicester event is Rutland Street's Manhattan34. Entry costs £10, for which they receive their Tito's doggie bandana, a drink for themselves and dog-friendly cocktail for their four legged friend. Over the following weeks, participants can visit a range of bars to try Tito's cocktails. By collecting stamps and sharing a selfie of themselves and Man's Best Friend on social media at each bar, they will also be rewarded with a Tito's dog bowl and tin wall sign which available from Manhattan34.
One dog will be chosen from all pictures shared on Instagram to be the Tito's dog ambassador for Leicester and will receive a special prize. Each venue will donate £2 to a local dog charity for every Tito's special drink sold.
