London’s most beautiful blossom-filled bars

These bloomin’ gorgeous installations have popped up in some of London’s top bars to celebrate cherry blossom season

sexy fish bar, cherry blossom pop-up

London bars are channelling the spirit of hanami, Japan’s cherry-blossom (sakura) season, with pop-up floral installations. Drink beneath the glow of pretty pink flowers, sip on blossom-infused cocktails and sake or even raise a glass of fizz to the most beautiful spring trend to hit London. Move fast, though: some of these bloomin’ gorgeous pop-ups are as fleeting as the season.
