Veg Night Out! Drinks at the Aspen Social Club

Without traveling, would you like to be able to escape to a beautiful ski chalet? And meet other vegetarians and vegans for drinks? Is there such an oasis in the heart of Manhattan?

There is. The Aspen Social Club.

Shecky's Nightlife Guide raves, "Like an antidote to Rockefeller Center, this wintry wonderland will make you forget you're in midtown."

Zagat.com: "Very cool for Times Square, this club-like spot is done up in ski-chalet style with birch trees.”

New York Magazine: "The sister bar of Flatiron’s Aspen has wood jutting out from every direction... In the back room, a nifty system of mirrors creates a visage of endlessly repeating tree trunks... The tequila-heavy drink selection is upscale and up-priced, suiting the crowd of upwardly mobile just-beyond-youngsters."

BUT we will not have to pay their normal "upscale and up-priced" bar tabs, as drink specials will be available all night: $5 beers and $5 house wines.

This meetup event runs from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. We encourage you to arrive right at 7pm, but you can show up later if you need to. And many of us will stay past 9pm.

For those who do not drink alcohol: there will be an ample selection of non-alcoholic drinks available. If you don't drink alcohol, you can still join in on all the fun!

With all the wonderful vegetarians and vegans who attend each of our events, every event we do is liked by our members, but our "Veg Night Out!" events are the most popular of all. People enjoy the fact they can mingle (speak with lots of different people), and they love the beautiful venues that we go to. Join us for a stellar evening of lively conversation and lovely surroundings with fellow vegetarians and vegans.

For our new members: this is an incredibly friendly and welcoming group. We'll have our own section in the club, and you can get to know all our wonderful members.

      They have a good menu but it's a bit pricey, at least for me-even the cocktails are $15. But that's Manhattan.

    I didn't realize that the protest against the Ringling Bros. circus at the Barclays Center is the same night. I have to protest against this horrific, abusive circus. Maybe the next Meetup.
