Popup bars & restaurants in London – August 2016

BY Sue Williamson

With the Olympics about to launch, it’s time for us all to be divided into two camps once more – those who watch sport, and those who don’t.

In the interests of fairness, it has to be said that the Olympics has more to offer a wider range of people than most sporting events, but there will still be times when the TV, and screens in various venues, will be filled with sports you simply don’t want to watch.

To escape from the relentless sport, or to take a break from the screen if you have been truly sucked in, pop along to one of this month’s excellent London popups

London Popups August 2016


One thing this popup has which differentiates it from the others is the Michelin-starred chefs behind it. Masterclasses in oysters, tea ceremonies, beer tasting and more are set to appear at POPdown over the next few months but, for now, you’ll have a continuously changing five course interactive tasting menu to enjoy. The downstairs area is a booking-free zone, offering craft beer, custom cocktails and small dishes.

Jimmy’s Surf n Turf 

Who could resist some outstanding surf n turf, featuring oysters, lobster, mackerel, Cote de Boeuf and cod’s roe? That is exactly what you’ll find at Jimmy’s Surf n Turf. Well, perhaps not exactly, as the menu will change, but you get the idea. Add to that 10-pint beer kegs on the table, cocktails and delicious desserts and you have a winner. Book now to avoid disappointment.

Sipsmiths Summer Terrace 

Not content with being the first distillery in over 180 years to open a copper pot distillery in London, Sipsmiths have now also become the first to open a popup gin bar on a terrace. Craft London is home to the Summer Terrace from 3rd August until 20th September, giving you more than enough time to get down there and immerse yourself in excellent gin-based cocktails, small dishes and masterclasses.
