A pop-up sea water bar is coming to Brixton

Isabelle Aron

London has pretty much seen it all when it comes to boozy pop-ups – we've had alcoholic slushies, a 'Breaking Bad'-inspired cocktail lab and a walk-in cocktail cloud. But now a slightly tamer pop-up bar is coming to Brixton: a pop-up sea water bar. Mmm, sea water. But before you decide that this really is peak pop-up, don't panic – it's all in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

The Bottle will be setting up shop at Pop Brixton September 8-10, and will be stocked with jars of water collected from the sea surrounding the UK, including some delicious 'Thames Wash', bottled at Victoria Embankment.

Thankfully, they're not expecting anyone to actually drink a salty bottle of sea water. Instead, they'll be handing out free bottles of mineral water to encourage people to take part in their H2Only fundraising challenge, which involves drinking only water from September 3-23, to help raise funds for the charity. 

We can't wait to hear what pop-up-hating Twitter account Get in the Sea has to say about this one.
