London Vegan Drinks

Welcome to London Vegan Drinks, Hosted by Fat Gay Vegan at...
A Room With a View, 1st Floor, Whole Foods Market, 63-97 Kensington High Street
W8 5SE, London


Since late 2011, London Vegan Drinks has been drawing more than 100 Vegans & their Veg-curious friends, to meet, drink, eat, mingle and laugh, without meat! Join us on the third Thursday of every month and discover for yourself exactly why this is a much loved event in the Vegan Social Calendar!

I will be traveling by the number 10 bus, which alights at a bus stop a short walk away from Whole Foods Market and High Street Kensington Tube. I tend to arrive around 7 or 7.30pm; if you're new to LVM or haven't attended LVD yet, if you arrive earlier, you will be greeted on arrival by your host, Sean (Fat Gay Vegan) or Josh, who will be handing out name tags. Let them know you're new to the event and they'll be sure to make you feel at ease and introduce you to some friendly faces. To find me, do check out my profile photo (Jessica Stella Fox; I have long aurburn hair & tend to wear purple/black, etc.,) or ask Sean or Josh if I'm there yet, and they'll point you in the right direction. Then I'll introduce you to the friendly Vegan Drinks crowd! :)

I stay till late (post drinks finishes around 11 or midnight) ; everyone is free to come & go as they please. 

((Spot the ''photo bomber?'' That's my friend Andy :) ))

Whole Foods Market is a most welcoming and accommodating venue for LVD; with plenty of drinks to choose from, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, at reasonable prices and lots of food available throughout all departments, including piping hot Vegan pizza, and the whole of the Whole Foods Market of course, so you're spoilt for choice!! 

How does London Vegan Drinks work?

There's no cover charge & you can spend as little or as much as you like; so buy a drink, maybe buy a meal or snack too, get a name tag and enter a ‘Room With A View’, and you'll soon have a smile on your face.... :)

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's just a 3 minute walk from High Street Kensington Underground station (turn right out of station). This Tube station is serviced by the Circle and District lines.

Walk to WFM;

Buses travel from all over London and pass right by the front door of Whole Foods Market. Below is a simple table showing the major bus routes and their destinations. Click here for a pdf of all the routes that pass through Kensington.

So, do Join us on the third Thursday of every month for a  most enjoyable & memorable night out; you will adore it!

You can invite non-Meetup pals over at the Facebook event.  You can also show up without an RSVP.

From 10pm, 'post-drinks' is in The Goat Tavern, (when you leave Whole Foods, turn right) just a one minute walk along Kensington High Street.

All the best, See you there, Jess :)

    I am glad we made it to the venue, and many thanks to all people we met there. As we are a bit shy -not too confident in english-, we look forward to become regular and to be able to chat with more people :).

    Could anyone who's attending Vegan Drinks take some VegFest leaflets for their local veg-friendly cafe, health food store, student union, staff room, etc.?

    London Vegan Meetup has been given some space at VegFest, and we need to say thank-you by helping them to get the word out.

    I'll be bringing some along, so please let me know...

      I'm afraid that I don't, Brian. I only know of the online sales...

      as soon as I got home, I realised that I had *completely* forgotten to come get the flyers from you >_< I could still come by somewhere convenient to you to grab some if needed - there are a couple of organic food shops in Ealing that would probably agree to display them (also, I've heard a rumour that there's a veggie cafe somewhere, I need to find it...)

    Hey everyone. This will be my first ever vegan /veggie meet up having moved to London. Getting tired of my veggieness being a topic of conversation at work etc. Just want to meet people who are at least on the same page as me. Anyway I look forward to meeting new people. Also I'm not vegan, just veggie so hope this isn't a big deal.

    Like chocolate? Who doesn't, right! Well, I'll be bringing just 5 samples of an unlaunched vegan chocolate bar tonight, and will be looking for 5 people to give me their feedback. Grab me if you want one!

    We've been asked to pass on a few updates about tomorrow...

    "There will be a little change on the beer and cider as they will sell them at retail price." Hurrah!

    "The wine will remain the same, with some options of red and white per glass and also whole bottles. Whole bottles will sell for retail price too but on top of that they will charge a £5 corkage fee on every bottle, and that will apply to wine bought downstairs in WFM and taken up."

    "Beers/ciders will be Brewers & Union from Germany, Fourpure Brewery from London and Cornish Orchard Ciders. Wine will have 3 option of red and 3 whites."

    "They will stop serving drinks at 9:40pm as the shop closes at 10pm."

    Hope that's all clear. See you there!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
