Love the sound of an evening escapade? These are the top spots for you.

Pop-Up India at Proud East

If you’ve ever binge-watched Bollywood classics or appreciate your nosh with a heavy dose of spice, you’re in for a treat. Evenings at the Proud East are repping all things Indian with a pop-up celebration of the country’s culture. The canal-side venue will host dance workshops, DJs and film screenings – not to mention plenty of grub, courtesy of Indian street food connoisseurs Chit Chaat Chai.

  • Film
  • Aldwych

14 nights of cinematic brilliance sounds like a hard thing to pass up – especially if it’s on the grounds of the beautiful Somerset House. So get booking: this year’s Film4 Summer Screen is back with an impressive mix of new and classic flicks. Each evening has a warm-up DJ playing film-inspired tune, and you can grab a bite from the food stalls before settling down on a blanket to catch the big screen action.

Giant Robot
  • 4 out of 5 stars
  • Restaurants
  • Street food
  • Canary Wharf
  • price 1 of 4

Sorry to disappoint, but Giant Robot isn’t a real life Iron Man. Bummer. But Street Feast’s new culinary wonderland in Canary Wharf is still impressive, offering more food and booze then you can shake a chopstick at. Yum Bun, Bob’s Lobster and the chicken-loving Thunderbird are some of the superstar traders feeding the masses – or stick to getting the rounds from the 36-tap beer bar.

  • Hotels
  • Bank

A former Grade I-listed bank is the year’s swanky place to-be as it’s home to a five-star hotel, spa, barbershop and nine restaurants for your choosing. For a lush dinner, take your pick of worldwide cuisines including Cecconi’s Venetian fare and classic British dishes from the 24-hour Millie’s Lounge.

Open-air theatre at The Scoop
  • Things to do
  • Festivals
  • Tower Bridge

This year’s free open-air production will please theatre buffs as it’s a re-make of Homer’s legendary Greek saga The Odyssey. There’s no need to book either: just rock up and grab a seat as the concave amphitheatre seats up to 1,000 people. The epic, three-part performance kicks off from 6pm, so if you’re in it for the long haul, don’t forget the snacks.
