The venue is currently being transformed by the owners of the neighbouring Dog and Doublet, who shared details of the Little Civic's new name and opening date on Facebook.

In the post on their Facebook page, The Dog and Doublet said that: 'we have been struggling for around 2 years to think of a name for the old little civic. But we tossed a coin at 4.30am this morning. And the name is now fully set in stone.'

They have stated that the venue will be split into two separate areas - the down stairs area will be called The Brass Giraffe and will serve cocktails and craft beers; while the upstairs live music, events and comedy area will be called The Humming Bird.

The Dog and Doublet have said that The Humming Bird will be open at the end of February, followed by The Brass Giraffe at the end of March.

The Little Civic closed its doors in 2009 after being taken over by Wolverhampton City Council in 1999. The venue moved to Broad Street under new name The Slade Rooms in 2010.

The Little Civic is well-known for helping to launch the careers of many well-known bands, including Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs and Arctic Monkeys.
