London may have arrived a little late to the UK vaping party, but the city now has its finger firmly on the pulse with vaping hubs popping up everywhere you look. Indeed, as the modern alternative to smoking becomes increasingly de rigueur, ‘The Big Smoke’ is soon to be renamed ‘The Big Vape’. So pop your electronic cigarette and vaping accessories in your pocket and head out for these popular vaping spots.
Make for Shoreditch High Street to mingle with vapers at Vape Lab, a plush e-cigarette coffee shop where business is conducted in a cloud of vapour. Expect oak floors, white tiles and supremely laidback vibes at this hip urban hangout. The coffee here is delicious and if you love to vape, chat and watch the world go by with your fellow vapers then this is the place for you.
Speed Vaping Events
Earlier this year blu UK organised the world’s first speed-vaping event in Shoreditch, which has spawned countless spin-off events around the city. How did we sow the seeds of lurve…? Romantically inclined vapers were paired off by flavour preference of course! Looking for love in the city? Forget Tinder, grab your blu Pro Kit and head along to your nearest speed vaping event. Electronic cigarettes don’t come much sexier than this.
St James’s Park
There are many picturesque parks in London where you can enjoy a vape on the move. But, there aren’t many places where you can see pelicans in the centre of the United Kingdom’s capital. St James’s Park is the oldest of the city’s eight royal parks and pelicans have been kept here since the 17th century, when a Russian Ambassador donated several to Charles II. The park is also home to The Mall and Horse Guards Parade for the inquisitive vaper.
House of Vapes
Beginners and expert vapers will feel welcome at House of Vapes in Shoreditch (something of a vaping mecca). This vape hub and coffee shop caters for its customers with a host of wacky flavours – which you can try using our blu Pro Tank – and fabulous cups of artisan coffee. Enjoy some cracking vaping banter in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Butler’s Wharf Chop House
Situated in a beautiful riverside location overlooking Tower Bridge, Butler’s Wharf Chop House is a great place to sit out on the terrace and enjoy a vape with your meal. This restaurant has a fantastic reputation for wine, which will take on new flavour dimensions now that you have stopped smoking traditional cigarettes. The menu is devoted to ‘really good British food’ and diners can make the most of unparalleled views from the riverside terrace for a truly scenic vape.
It’s impossible to condense the entire vaping scene of a capital city into a short blog post, but these places are definitely worth a visit. Happy vaping!
