The second Black Dog Ballroom venue, Black Dog NWS is a New York style speakeasy, diner with a pool room, covered roof terrace complete with BBQ in the summer and basement bar and club. We also have our own pin-code protected private members’ Ballroom and bespoke karaoke booth.

If the main bar just isn't lively enough for you, you can head to the basement club - Underdog. The room is spacious but dark and dimly lit to give it that feeling of secrecy, making it a great place to blow off some steam with the students and party goers out of the way of the more sensible, young professional types at the bar upstairs. Black Dog Ballroom NWS is an ideal place to go for after work drinks and to host private events. 

All of the live sport is shown here on a weekly basis on our giant HD projector screen situated on the covered roof terrace. What better excuse to get together some mates for a burger, beer and some great sporting action.

Great to go there for a drink after work or before a night out. Especially to play pool. Affordable with a great atmosphere. Would highly recommend it for others to go.

The roof terrace is amazing! Much better than when it was Space. Love sitting up there under the clear roof on rainy days, it's really cosy.

Took a serious beating on the pool tables here but drowned my sorrows with the great selection of beers on offer. Great for a chilled night with the lads.
