We love vegan junk food


"A cruelty-free vegan lifestyle doesn't have to be boring"

 

Bristolians you have been warned! The vegan-apocalypse is coming. Although we won’t be riding horses as we’re vegan, obviously. 

That’s right: Vx is the UK’s first chain of cruelty-free shops in the country and we are now in Bristol. Vx is the best thing to arrive in Bristol since Banksy left for LA. Vx is proud to announce that we are bringing our unique brand of world-renowned delicious vegan treats, full junk food menu (including tasty new extras), plethora of exclusive imported plant-based delicacies, diverse range of extraordinarily-melty cheeses, French patisserie, our own-brand Secret Society of Vegans clothing and more goodies besides, in our mission to fully veganise one of the coolest corners of the UK – Bristol.

Veganism should never be a brown rice and lentil hell or a flavourless penance. For us, the best way to ensure the masses adopt a cruelty-free way of life that eliminates the abuse and exploitation of our animal chums, is to offer people a seriously delicious alternative.

Veganism should never be a brown rice and lentil hell or a flavourless penance. For us, the best way to ensure the masses adopt a cruelty-free way of life that eliminates the abuse and exploitation of our animal chums, is to offer people a seriously delicious alternative.

Vx has always been about firsts. We were the first 100% vegan boutique in the UK. We were the first outlet to stock many of the biggest vegan brands and to import many new products. We were the first all-vegan clothing line in the UK. And now we are excited to make history as the first chain of vegan shops in the UK. 

Our success is attributable to our founding ideology. Pioneering the idea that veganism doesn’t have to be unimaginative or limiting, our mission has always been a simple one: to promote a cruelty-free vegan lifestyle without sacrificing taste. Veganism should never be a brown rice and lentil hell or a flavourless penance.

For us, the best way to ensure the masses adopt a cruelty-free way of life that eliminates the abuse and exploitation of our animal chums, is to offer people a seriously delicious alternative. We strive to give our customers a veganised version of the type of food we all grew up loving, as well as lovingly increasing their risk of developing diabetes, suffering strokes or, worse, acute sugar dependency. 

Vx offers a full junk food menu featuring two sizes of kebabs, burgers and other disgustingly mouth-watering junk that will keep your bellies full and your waistline expanding. We are also huge importers of vegan goods from around the globe and boast an array of cheeses that are so cheese-like they confound and delight in equal measure. Sticky, sweet and awfully indulgent French patisserie rounds off Vx menu.

Vx now offers its own brand of vegan icecream! Made with soya. Gluten free options available.

Grocery


We offer a large selection of vegan cheese, mock-meat, chocolatey treats and other crazy hard-to-find products such as spray whipped cream! A lot of our products are organic (Wheaty), palm oil free (our complete range of vegan hard cheeses) or gluten free (see the aufschnitt range). We import most of our stuff from abroad, so you can be sure to get something that you'll never find anywhere else!

Secret Society Of Vegans

Secret Society Of Vegans


The notorious vegan merch company is now available in Bristol.

What is the SSOV?

The acronym stands for Secret Society of Vegans. The SSOV is a clothing company owned by Rudy P. (Vx London / Vx Bristol), which began life many years ago as a means to fund the launch of Pogo Café (London’s first vegan café, 2004-2013). SSOV was created at a time when it was rare to see a cool vegan t-shirt. In fact, back then, most vegan kids just covered themselves in mud and leaves, or fashioned underwear from twigs and recycled rubbish, rather than wear anything uncool that might compromise their ethics. Besides Herbivore in the U.S. and a few other companies, virtually nobody was reppin’ the vegan message, and most vegan t-shirts offered in the UK / Europe were designed with a 70s hippie vibe. Something that, being raised in the hardcore punk scene, felt alienated and allergic to tie-dye, lava lamps, arbitrary cultural appropriation and free love, made Rudy feel completely alienated.


The concept behind veganism as 'secret society' originated from the idea that people value exclusivity. "By making it hard to join in, we will attract more people!" is a playful reverse psychology, essentially. It's also a joke about the vegan population being part of an arcane cult with esoteric rituals. Which we are. Shhhh. I’ve said too much, already. Run now, before it’s too late!

 

What's available at Vx Bristol?

Currently, we offer a small selection of bags, t-shirts, badges, keyrings, stickers and hoodies. You can see the full range on the Vx London website, but not everything is available in Bristol just yet. We will have more products onto our shelves as we tweak things over the upcoming months.

The TEAM


AMANDINE

GENERAL MANAGER

Before becoming co-owner of Vx Bristol in 2015, Amandine was previously an uptight office worker for the French Ministry of Justice. Growing weary of wearing heels and waging war on international conservation organisations, Amandine longed to do something really valuable and actually make a difference. Vegetarian since she was 15, Amandine became a vegan in 2012 after spending a month experiencing life in Edgar‘s Mission, a sanctuary farm based in Victoria, Australia. In her spare time, she likes drawing cartoons and customising stuff that she finds in the street (no, not homeless people or drunks).

Rudy

Co-Owner

Rudy owns the original Vx in London and co-owns Vx Bristol with Amandine. He's not there all the time because he has to take care of two rescued dogs who demand to be walked for hours in Greenwich Park (London). When Rudy is not designing stuff for Vx or the Secret Society Of Vegans (his clothing brand), he can be found at his local MMA gym in Kings Cross, kicking and punching bags and sometimes people. More essential info can be found about him here.

Wendy

SHOP ASSISTANT

PGAB3507.jpg

Wendy is from the U.S. She's been vegan for 20 years. Just a mellow geek. She listens to tons of podcasts. Love playing board games and watching too much TV. She's obsessed with her cat Greta (also from the States), and, yes, she incessantly takes photo of Greta as she engages in wild antics--which are mostly sleeping and sitting. Her education and professional background are in mental health treatment. But her passions are bread making and fermenting all sorts of foods and beverages.

Edward

SHOP ASSISTANT

Ed is 25. Vegan for 4 years. A fan of dogs, broccoli and charity shops. Ed plays in a band that mostly involved lying on the floor and talking about their feelings. He once tattoed EMO4LIFE on his leg and still doesn't regret it. In his spare time he enjoys lying down or photographing things that look like Donald Trump's hair. His instagram is @abcdefghijkillyourself

OLIVIA

SUPERVISOR

A trained florist and a fan of electronic glitch hop, Olivia studied Philosophy at university back in 2008, but whenever she mentions this to people in Bristol, they always quote philosophers she has never heard of, so please don’t involve her in philosophical debate. Olivia is the sweetest member of the Vx team and is often hugged by total strangers in the streets. Her instagram is @fatheranddaughterco

Charlotte

SHOP ASSISTANT

Having lived through the height of the renaissance era as an infamous portraitist, Charlotte decided it was time to blend into modern human society, taking on the guise of a humble illustration student. Though she insists she´s just unbelievably pale, rumour says she is actually a vegan vampire, which is backed up by the fact nobody has seen her consume anything but copious amounts of oat milk.
