Vegan Nights is London’s biggest and best plant-based food and lifestyle party.
They launched in 2017 as a one-off night market and plant-based party but quickly had to turn Vegan Nights into a regular event to meet the demands of East London’s insatiable vegan community.
Adopting a festival feel, the location of Vegan Nights currently stretches comfortably in excess of 50,000ft² of the Truman Brewery and boasts a huge outdoor food court and nightclub. With a curated line-up of around 40 food stalls serving a selection of plant-based street food, Vegan Nights really is the best place for lifelong vegans to socialise. Come for the food, stay for the (vegan) beer, DJs and authentic atmosphere.
All the restaurants we’ve talked about in the article are 100% vegan, but even if you choose another one, there’s a high chance it will have a vegan option. So, we hope we've inspired you to try some new vegan dishes in Brick Lane! If you're ever in London, make sure to stop by, have something to eat, and enjoy an awesome vegan party at night!
