Does Nirvana seem like a vegan kind of band to you? It is for proprietors of the new In Bloom cafe, a vegan eatery that opens later this year in Glasgow, Scotland.

Named after the 1992 single from Nirvana’s Nevermind album — which was named Best Alternative Video at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards — the restaurant is billed as a “cruelty free cafe” that, according to a new Facebook post, will feature Karma Cola, “an organic, fairtrade and incredibly ethical alternative to Coca-Cola.”

YUILL Decorators Kilmarnock done a bloomin' fabulous job on our shop front today. Not long to go now! ????

The post asks visitors to “Keep an eye out for our opening date” but does not specify when that might be.

There’s been no reaction to the cafe from the Nirvana camp.
