One of the biggest monthly social events on the planet finds a new home in one of most vegan-friendly stores in the country.

Welcome to London Vegan Drinks at Whole Foods Market Kensington.

London Vegan Drinks has grown since its inception in 2011 to become one of the most popular and loved vegan social events anywhere in the world. On the third Thursday of every month, more than 100 vegans and their friends gather to drink, eat and meet without meat.

Whole Foods Market is the perfect place for this event. An extensive range of vegan alcohol at reasonable prices and a piping hot oven churning out plant-based pizzas will keep revellers satisfied as they take in the night time lights of Kensington High Street from the gorgeous ‘Room With A View’. This exclusive space on the first floor is highly sought after and is the ideal place to mingle, refresh and enjoy.

How does London Vegan Drinks work?

You show up. You buy drinks. You buy food if you are hungry. You socialise. It is so simple, yet so effective. There is no cover charge and you are free to spend as much or as little money as you choose.

You can purchase food in any of the departments throughout Whole Foods Market as well as the award-winning vegan restaurant Saf. The upstairs Whole Foods bar is stocked with a wide range of vegan beers and wine that can be carried through to our gorgeous meeting room.

Where is the venue?

Whole Foods Market is housed in the historic Barker Building at 63-97 Kensington High Street, W8 5SE. The Room With A View is on the first floor, the same level as the bar, food court and restaurants. The function room is located at the front of the building, overlooking the High Street.

It is a three minute walk from High Street Kensington Underground station (turn right out of station). This Tube station is serviced by the Circle and District lines.

    Exciting news!

    We are having quite a few vegan products being sampled at London Vegan Drinks this week. Check it out:

    Vintage Roots = Vegan sparkling wines
    inSpiral = vegan cakes
    Dip Society = vegan dips
    CoYo = vegan ice cream
    Booja Booja = vegan truffles

    Obviously there won't be enough for everyone to try every product so I would suggest getting in early, perhaps trying something new, have a chat with the companies and don't try to eat everything in sight. Try a little bit and leave samples for your Meetup friends! xx

    A couple of months ago, a bunch of us decided to dress up for Vegan Drinks to mark "International Suit-Up Day". Well, since it's (almost) Christmas, we're planning to do it again! So we're encouraging any others who are so inclined to come in their finest too... Who's in?

      What are you on about? Perhaps a case of communication breakdown / lost in translation, but dodgy is not meant derogatively. It's a humorous expression. Maybe do your research / reading next time before jumping eh?

    The London Vegan Drinks after party is in the Prince of Wales pub. This pub is not even a one minute walk from Whole Foods. Cross over the intersection to Kensington Church Street and you will see the pub about 3 shop fronts along. Yes, we need an after party because apparently vegans like to drink for longer than 4 hours!
