Eight pop-ups happening in London this March

Isabelle Aron

Whether you fancy jumping into March on an adults-only bouncy castle, tucking into posh fish and chips or going back in time at an 80s office party, we've got you covered with this month's top pop-ups.

Bouncingham Castle

Kids get to have all the fun, don't they? Well not anymore, because an adults-only bouncy castle is coming to the South Bank this month and you can go and jump around on it for free! At last, you can show off your star-jump skills without worrying about barging into any small children. 2A More London Riverside, SE1 2DB. March 3-5. Free.

Beyond The Cask pop-up bar

Love whisky? Then you'll want to make a beeline for this boozy pop-up that promises to show you everything you ever wanted to know about Scottish tipple Glenmorangie. Kick back with a cocktail in the library and read up on all things whisky-related, or head down to the vaults, where you can enjoy paired food and drink. And if you fancy yourself as a whisky connoisseur, you'll also have a chance to taste the really good stuff, as they'll be cracking open bottles of exclusive extra mature aged whisky. Fancy. 15 Bateman Street, W1D 3AQ. March 3-13 (closed March 6), 5pm-11.30pm.

Wavey Garms at Boxpark

Wavey Garms started out as a Facebook page back in 2013, before opening up its first bricks and mortar site in Peckham last year. But if you haven't made it over to the depths of south London to check it out yet, it's coming to east London for a one-week pop-up at Boxpark, where you can get your hands on plenty of ace vintage clothing, as well as some of their own merchandise. Bethnal Green Road, Shoreditch, E1 6GY. March 21-27.

The Notting Gill Chippy 

The Notting Gill Chippy (geddit?) returns to Kensington for another year to give fish and chips a posh makeover. As well as traditional fish and chips, they're serving up mackerel sliders, salt and pepper squid with soy and ginger dressing and king prawn scampi. And there's even something for those with an aversion to fish, as they've also got smoked bacon and apple scotch eggs on the menu – although a battered sausage might be pushing it. Kensington Place, 201 Kensington Church Street, W8 7LX. From March 3.

Cocktails in the City 

The premise behind Cocktails in the City is simple: they bring together cocktails from 20 of London's top bars, and you come prepared to drink. A lot. This year, they've also got an international floor with guest bars from Paris and Amsterdam. Expect boozy delights from the likes of Cocktail Trading Company, 68 & Boston and Cahoots. One Mayfair, North Audley St, W1K 6ZA. £15. 

American Apparel factory sale

In the market for some spandex? You'll find plenty of that, plus loads of other discounted clothes at American Apparel's outlet store in Brick Lane. Get ready to grab yourself a bargain as prices start from £1 and nothing will cost more than £35. 91 Brick Lane, E1 6QL. March 4.

The '80s Office Party 

If you hate your boss or accidentally snog a co-worker, office parties can be slightly awkward affairs. But the folks behind The Art of Dining have taken all that's good about them and come up with this '80s office party extravaganza. They'll be serving punch out of the watercooler, as well as a five-course meal of office-inspired fare, including a smoked haddock and caper sausage roll for elevenses and a packed lunch of braised pork bao. Expect team building exercises, big shoulder pads and people running amok around the photocopier. 

Hox Cup Sake Bar

Cup sake – small cans of Japanese rice wine – was invented in 1964 so that Japanese spectators at the Tokyo Olympics could quench their thirst without cracking open a whole bottle of the stuff. It might be a little way off, but as this pop-up is in anticipation of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, they'll be serving up 20 different types of sake rarely seen outside of Japan and showing archive footage of the '64 Olympic Games. The Hoxton Hotel, 81 Great Eastern St, EC2A 3HU. Until March 6.
