Respond to Review of V Revolution
Review: Firstly, I need to clarify. I really like the idea behind V Revolution. This is not just one business, it's three! There's the punk/hardcore metal record shop; the vegan food store; and then, the main event, a kitsch American style diner serving American style junk food that is definitely not junk! The food is worth the trip alone and it makes a nice change to be eating vegan food in a cafe that doesn't live up to the usual vegetarian/vegan venue cliche. Red vinyl seats and a chequerboard vinyl floor set the scene and make for a clean, crisp atmosphere. The staff are laid back and friendly and, as it's nice to have an excuse to browse the records, the slightly longer wait for our food wasn't a problem. Despite this there is a bit of an issue at V revolution. The three businesses each suffer from not having the full focus of the space. The record shop feels like a little bit of an after-thought and the food store also suffers a similar fate. I really believe in what the owner is trying to achieve here. V Revolution has the potential to be a real destination, a venue for vegan/vegetarian punks wishing to compare notes and have a bite to eat whilst they do it, but there is need to unify the space and make it feel like all three parts are living in harmony.
