Veg Night Out! - at Soaked, the Mondrian SoHo's amazing rooftop bar

Beat the heat, 26 stories high...  Let's cool down in style at Soaked, the Mondrian SoHo's rooftop bar, with spectacular views from a wraparound deck and a wide selection of delicious cocktails made with fresh-pressed fruit and vegetable juices.

According to the New York Times, "Soaked is 26 flights up, in a space designed as a presidential suite. The wraparound deck offers spectacular views in every direction. But with artificial turf, potted reeds and tiny lights strung overhead, the ambience is Montauk-esque, as if guests are overlooking Fort Pond instead of a sliver of the East River."

Downtown adds, "Soaked is best known for concocting all-natural, market-fresh cocktails and fruit infusions. From fresh watermelon soaked in tequila, to pureed cocktails of beets, apples, pears and Mezcal, to raspberry vodka soft-serve, there is no end to the possibilities of fruit-infused spirits or spirit-infused fruits at Soaked. If you love fresh fruit and breath-taking views of NYC, perhaps you’d like to visit Soaked for an out of this world experience."

According to BlackBook, "Like a 19th hole, secreted away on an island atop the city. Hotel rooftop arrays deck furniture around mix of natural grass and Astroturf flooring. Dangling exposed bulbs complement prairie of city lights along the horizon. Seasonal availability only, maxes use of summer with fruit aplenty. Adult popsicles adulterated with vodka, steeped fruits, all-organic cocktails. Avoids amateur hour shenanigans by being open Tuesday through Thursday only, advance reservations required." We will have our own space reserved in the indoor section with both uptown and downtown views, and will be able to roam around the deck area. There will also be iced tea drink specials for our group.  Mention that you're with the veggie group at the door. The entrance to Soaked is 150 Lafayette (the Mondrian's back entrance). The group will be in the indoor area close to the bar.

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. Soaked actually specializes in creating market-fresh fruit infusions and juices, and these can be ordered without alcohol if you wish. So 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.

People sometimes ask, so I'll mention: this event is free. (We would tell you if there was a cover charge.) There is no cover, no minimum. But please do buy a drink or two, or as many as you like. :) This is a drinking event after all.

Where to meet: The entrance to Soaked is 150 Lafayette (the Mondrian's back entrance), between Grand St. and Howard St. Mention that you're with the veggie group at the door. The group will be in the indoor area close to the bar.

Train Directions: Take the J, M, N, Q, R or 6 Train to Canal Street.

Join us on the Mondrian Soho's rooftop for cool breezes, cool drinks, and stunning views, all while making great new veg*n friends!

    Thanks to everyone for showing up and making this a very enjoyable event. Our group was a bit spread out, but I think for the most part we found each other (we'll agree to a secret sign for the next event .... a "V" for veggie comes to mind, but maybe that's too easy) .... Also, please let us know if you have ideas for the next veggie drinks event ...
