Chilled-out bar serving an entirely vegan food menu with a packed programme of live music and club nights in the downstairs venue.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

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.

  • High point: Creative specials board
  • Low point: Tables fill up quickly
  • Notable dish: Buffalo cauliflower
  • Average price: £7.20 (set lunch); £12.50 (dinner)
  • Provides: Vegetarian options (at least ¼ main courses), Gluten-free options, Children's high chairs, Wheelchair access, Free wi-fi
  • Music on stereo: An eclectic mix including indie, funk, R&B and electro.
  • Live entertainment: DJs in the bar. Downstairs venue hosts club nights, gigs and spoken word.
  • Capacity: 75
  • Largest group: 25
  • Open since: 2007
  • Number of wines sold by the glass: 5
  • House wine: £14.30 per bottle
