More Than Just a Flash in the Pan – July’s London Pop-ups

They say a change is a good as a rest, which is why we love the concept of pop-up bars and restaurants. We are already spoiled for choice in London, with more restaurants than you could possibly ever visit, but the temporary nature of pop-ups gives would-be restaurateurs a bit more scope for doing something special and packing it up again before it becomes ordinary.

Take a break from the mundane and join the limited audiences who will experience this month’s pop-up bars, restaurants and events. A few of our favourites to follow…

Unknown Pleasures


Disco Bistro and Pure Evil have worked together to produce this event which takes the temporary part of being a pop-up very seriously indeed – it will only be around for four days. Between Thursday 10th and Saturday 13th July, visitors to the “kinda Cornish, Japanese, Korean thing” can enjoy a three course meal, cocktails and some great live entertainment. Thursday night has already sold out, so you’ll need to be quick to grab a ticket!

That Hungry Chef’s Secret Garden BBQ

This Sunday, 6th July, you could join a select group of people enjoying dinner in chef Pratap Chahal’s garden. This is no disposable barbecue and charred burgers affair; there’s a tandoor oven and a wood-burning grill in the secret outdoor area. You may even get the chance to try making your own naan bread and tandoori kebabs. Tickets include three beers, Pimms or soft drinks, as well as your food.

HMS Plate & Shaker Docked in Cuba

Learn to make cocktails before enjoying three of them alongside a delicious Cuban meal on board the HMS Plate & Shaker on Saturday 12th July. Large platters of Cuba’s best kept secret delicacies will start the dining experience, followed by shredded beef with black beans, rice and plantain, slow-roasted Cuban style pork and more. Remember those cocktails you made earlier? You’ll have a mojito, a Cuban breakfast daiquiri and a Cuban Shakedown to wash down your food. Only 40 tickets are available for this event and they are now for sale online.

Kopparberg Urban Forest

When you think of forest retreats, we bet Dalston isn’t one of the first places to come to mind. It should be! Kopparberg’s Urban Forest is open in Dalston from 2nd July – 3rd August, offering live music, entertainment, food and drink to those in need of some free woodland relaxation. Live music during the evening will make way DJ and club sets at night, food will be created by three of East London’s finest street eateries and, of course, a lot of Kopparberg cider and beer will flow. Have a look at the full line-up; you’re bound to find something you want to see!
