Donald Waton’s Vegan Bar, named after The Vegan Society founder, is due to open its doors in Granby Street in Leichester’s city centre later this year.
The fully plant-based venue aims to raise awarness of Donald Watson‘s work, while educating about how many alcoholic drinks are not vegan-friendly. To learn more, visit our Ultimate Guide to Vegan Alcohol.
“A lot of people don’t know about Donald Watson and what he’s done. I think it’s important to emphasise that he started The Vegan Society here in Leicester,” the owner told LeicestershireLive. “I wanted to use his name to do something that no-one has done before – create a vegan bar. It will be a high quality, landmark bar.”
All drinks served in the new Donald Waton’s Vegan Bar will be 100 percent vegan with a choice of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails.
Locally sourced produce will be transformed into a selection of bar snacks, small plates, and burgers once the venue is ready to open.
