Veg Night Out! in Williamsburg at the Wythe Hotel Rooftop Bar - The Ides
Let's hangout at The Ides Rooftop Bar at the hip Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, BROOKLYN. New York Magazine writes: "an indoor and outdoor space on the sixth floor of Williamsburg's new pride and joy ... have a seat at the bar or on one of the indoor red banquettes, or take it out to the terrace, with views of Manhattan that you could only see if you were not actually in the borough." LocalBozo says, "green plant life acts as partitions around the roof with benches lining the entire open-air space ... you’d be hard pressed to find a rooftop scene as laid back as this one and The Ides manages to pull it together inside of Williamsburg’s most popular settings ... the views are remarkable and the drinks are especially refreshing ... your best bet is to grab a “Harvey Wallbanger” ... or a tasty and summery “Hemingway Daquiri” ..." According to Spotted by Locals, "the Wythe Hotel is a very cool hotel converted from a turn-of-the-century factory in the trendy industrial waterfront section of Williamsburg ... The Ides delivers breathtaking views overlooking Manhattan’s east side for you to enjoy as you sip one of the mixologist’s delicately prepared delights. You can enjoy your beverages inside at a select few tables or at the bar (first come, first serve), or during the summer outdoors on its ultra-hip patio, adorned with a three story floor-to-ceiling light display ... As far as libations, I recommend trying their moscow mule derivation, but most of their specialty cocktails are a hit." 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. There is no cover and no minimum. But please do buy a drink or two, or as many as you like. For our new members: this is an incredibly friendly and welcoming group. Come to our Veg Night Out! at The Ides and make new friends. Our event officially runs from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. I am sure a good number of us will be staying till 10 (or later). Train Directions: Take the L train to Bedford Ave. or the G train to Nassau Ave. Where to meet: Go to the rooftop bar, The Ides, on the 6th floor. We will be by the bar area, and also outside on the terrace. Look for our large group. See you at The Ides! Martin

What we're about

Public Group

Do you love trying new vegetarian & vegan restaurants? Do you enjoy the company of fellow vegetarians & vegans? Are you occasionally frustrated that your meat-eating friends "don't get it," and do you wish to dine with others that have the same enthusiasm for vegetarian and vegan food that you do?

Welcome to our group. What I am especially proud of is all the wonderful members we have. We seem to attract some of the very nicest, most thoughtful people in New York. Given the focus of our group, I am not surprised.

New York has many excellent vegetarian and vegan restaurants, and new ones are opening all the time. Join us as we explore them all, and enjoy dining with some of the kindest, most gracious, most socially-conscious people in New York.

Plus, join us as we go out on the town to vegetarian and vegan friendly bars and lounges. And partake when we go to visit some outstanding music venues. Great ways to have delightful nights on the town in the company of a fun and friendly group of vegetarians and vegans.

We warmly welcome all vegetarians and vegans as well as those that are considering a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Our meetup group was profiled in a news story on CNN's Headline News channel. Check out the video (
