London Vegan Drinks – First Saturday of the Month – August 2018

Enjoy meeting people? And vegan food/drink?

Come to Europe’s largest monthly vegan social on the first Saturday of every month!

London Vegan Drinks typically sees up to 100 vegans and the vegan-friendly assembling in this fantastic vegan-run venue – with a fully vegan food and drinks menu (including plenty of options for teetotallers!)

Since September 2014, London has had a new, all vegan bar / restaurant / venue – Karamel Restaurant.  Run by vegans, and with an all vegan menu and drinks list (including Pitfields on tap!), this is now the home of London Vegan Drinks.  And although it’s a little out of central London, it’s less than 30 minutes from Oxford Circus by public transport.

What’s more, they have a late license until 2am at weekends. So feel free to arrive any time before then.  And being a Saturday, you (hopefully!) won’t have to worry about work in the morning.

If you’ve been to London Vegan Drinks before, you’ll already know that this event, founded by blogger FatGayVegan in 2011, has become London’s biggest monthly vegan social event (having already outgrown three previous venues).

And if you haven’t been before, it’s about time you did! London Vegan Drinks typically sees up to 100 attendees from London Vegan Meetup – plus other vegans and the vegan-friendly from London and beyond.
