Roof Dog

Roof Dog: A Short History Of The Windmill

The Windmill is a flat-roofed pub in Brixton that for the past 20 years has been at the epicentre of London’s underground music scene. Its doors have been famously presided over by a series of roof dogs, including the legendary Ben the Rottweiler.

With the help of impressionistic illustrations by his son Otto, seasoned music critic Will Hodgkinson embarks on a spiritual journey to the heart of the Windmill, seeking to understand why this particular dive bar has become such a magical space of freedom and discovery.
