For one month starting on the 9th September, the award-winning pop-up Conflict Café will return to London’s House of Vans beneath Waterloo Station. With ‘serving peace through food’ in mind, the Conflict Café Syria event will take place over the weekend of the 21st September, raising awareness of conflict in the Middle East.

Diners will enjoy no less than 9 dishes from Syrian restaurant Ayam Zaman chefs, specialising in the cuisine of the Damascus region of Syria. Guests will be seated on communal tables in the spectacular underground tunnels of the House of Vans, full of atmosphere.

Conflict Café, created by peacebuilding charity International Alert, celebrates our strong belief that food can be a powerful tool for breaking down barriers and deepening understanding. Over a thousand diners have so far been served, highlighting cuisines and conflicts from Sri Lanka to Colombia, as well as celebrating the power of food to bring people together.

Profits from ticket sales go towards supporting International Alert’s work building peace in 25 countries and regions, including the Middle East. This pop-up is a welcoming space, perfect for groups and single diners alike. Pop down to this pop-up and experience Syrian hospitality, start to understand more of what's happening in the region, make new friends, and even win prizes with a quiz.
