All Bar One proves plant power is here to stay

One of the city’s most stylish bars, All Bar One has announced that it will be extending the residency of its pop up vegan menu due to unprecedented demand for its plant-based dishes.

The menu, consisting of nine vegan dishes, was introduced on the 1 January in partnership with Veganuary, the global charity encouraging people to embrace the Vegan lifestyle for January. It was initially launched for January but has been so popular with the current All Bar One guests and the vegan community that the bar chain has decided to extend the menu throughout February.

The menu has also received a positive reception across the vegan community, with the likes of the Ginger Kitchen, That Irish Vegan Girl and Illustrated Ella all giving the menu their seal of approval.
