When the old Penny Theatre became a Scream pub at the end of 1999, the Cardinal's Cap became the only proper indie/rock music venue left in the city (excluding the University venues). The pub was suitably attired, with black wood everywhere. All this changed in February 2001, when it had a makeover to become very bright, and all traces of its old incarnation disappeared. This was only the beginning, as just a few months later the transformation was complete the original name was lost too as the pub became the Blind Dog. It hasn't really changed much since its final months as the Cardinal's Cap.
