Whether you want to boogie to Balearic music, eat street food in an abandoned warehouse, lose yourself in a Swedish forest or just rave on a pontoon, London has a pop-up experience to suit everyone. Here’s our pick of London's best pop-ups.
Pop-ups in London
A music festival where you actually make time to eat? Who would have thought it. For one day only, Field Day are teaming up with Street Feast to take over Dinerama in Shoreditch. You'll be able to a drink from the German Sex Dungeon to wash down a dish from Prawnography, finished off with a creamy dessert from You Doughnut. Dance off the innuendos with DJ sets from Erol Alkan, Django Django, Tim Burgess and Cowboy Rhythmbox.
Celebrate London's best margaritas at the ‘Margarita Rumble’ - to a grand ole fiesta brought to the capital from New York City's Craft Hospitality. See over 15 specially curated bars and restaurants and their top mixologists compete for the prestigious title of London’s best Margarita and vote for who you think should wear the crown.
Get ready to be transported to the year 1965 at the 'British National Space Laboratory' (handily located in Haggerston) for foodie-pop-up specialist The Art of Dining's latest retro-futuristic gastronomic adventure. Here intrepid diners will transform into astronauts preparing to create a colony on Mars as they tuck into a five-course feast inspired by the '60's view of 'the future'.
Take leave of (one) of your senses as global music company Audio Network take over ‘dine in the dark’ restaurant Dans Le Noir?. Composer Paul Ressel has created a soundrack to match a five-course meal that will allow guests to absorb music and flavours in a completely new way.
If you can name us a trio of habits more commonplace in the capital than drinking craft beer, eating street food and getting stuck in an east London backstreet after missing the last train, you win a bottle of beard oil. The London Craft Beer Festival is moving into a bigger, badder venue at Shoreditch Electric Light Station, the home of the UK's National Circus School, so expect a few new tricks. The line-up of breweries includes The Kernel, Brew Dog, Gipsy Hill, Beavertown, Stone & Wood and Thornbridge Brewery.
