Last night was our FIRST EVER Vegan Speed Dating at the gorgeous upstairs of The Coach & Horses and I must say it was possibly one of our best ever speed dating events yet!
Well before we go into that I'd like to quickly set the scene. As it would be a miss not to mention our gorgeous and apt surroundings. The Coach & Horses was London's first ever vegan and vegetarian pub, in a Grade II listed building in Soho. Name me a better venue for the best vegan dating event in town? I'll wait. Upstairs lies one of Soho's best kept secrets, a 1920's style vegan and vegetarian tearoom. Not only is this quirky space perfect for speed dating but it serves classic vegan pub grub and just to help set the mood we placed Love Hearts on each of the tables. Who knew these classic sweets were Vegan friendly.
So why was Vegan Speed Dating our best ever event?
Well it's really quite simple and the answer is 'common ground'. Everyone in the room immediately had a connection, a shared understanding and ultimately a starting point from which friendships and relationships can grow. This made for a great environment and vibrant atmosphere. People stuck around afterwards chatting and were ordering food from bar. It was a fantastic night and one of many, many more Vegan Speed Dating events.
You will not find a more authentic vegan event in London, even our host Arthur is vegan!
Vegan Speed Dating will be taking place once a month at The Coach & Horses. Our next event is the Tuesday, 11 December. This event is limited to 15 dates and is sure to sell out!
