Chilled-out bar serving an entirely vegan food menu with a packed programme of live music and club nights in the downstairs venue.
Many bars try to pull off a chilled-out vibe but Stereo’s blend of worn wooden benches and pillars plastered with gig posters is the real deal. The outwardly unassuming venue is frequented by a mix of gig-goers heading to the downstairs venue, vegans and city centre drinkers looking for somewhere with soul. The kitchen serves up soup and sandwich combos, tapas dishes and mains as well as a board of creative daily specials. Attention is paid not just to the flavour but to the texture of dishes – the shamuchan, a Turkish pizza wrap, is stuffed with spiced haggis and crunchy cabbage, while lightly battered cauliflower is a delicious veggie take on Buffalo wings. The food menu is completely free of animal produce and they’re aiming to have the same policy for their drinks, with several of the craft beers served already flying the animal-free flag.
