London’s Latest Pop Ups

Pop-ups, residencies and one-night-only events are all the rage in the capital at the moment. And what’s not to love about that once-in-a-lifetime feeling you get when you bag yourself a ticket or reservation at one of them!? More often than not, these events offer an exciting, superstar chef collaboration or the opportunity to try a new kid on the block, who’s testing the water before taking the leap and opening their own place. Either way, they’re all in good fun, so we thought we’d round up out pick of the best this Autumn:

W London ‘Goes Dutch’

They gave us Edam cheese, tulips and clogs – for which we are forever grateful and therefore we can’t think of a country more deserving of a themed takeover than the Netherlands. From 9th to 23rd October, the public areas of W London in Leicester Square, will be restyled into an ‘Ode to Amsterdam’ where guests will be able to try out a Dutch menu, Dutch-inspired cocktails, film screenings plus get the opportunity to win a Dutch bike. All this is for a reason though as it celebrates the opening of W Amsterdam, as part of an empire expansion from […]

Archie’s Sunday Roast at Brixton East

Sundays in Autumn spell r-o-a-s-t. After a busy weekend out and about at open air markets, brunches and walks by the river there’s nothing better than the smells of chicken and gravy filling the house. Until the next day when the smell remains but the food has long been demolished, except for the carcass, which you will or will not get round to making stock with, and a pile of tins and dishes patiently waiting by the sink. Whilst we’re all for the homemade Sunday roast, Archie’s @ Brixton East is hosting a one-off Sunday Lunch on the 18th October. […]

Bottomless Suppers at The Exhibit

First came the bottomless brunch. Then came another bottomless brunch. And then another. And another… (Another). We never complain when our fourth prosecco is placed in front of us but emerging into the real world at midday and realising you really should have saved the drinking for that evening isn’t always the makings of a productive Saturday. Imagine the next time you have a bottomless meal you walk out into the street and it is actually an acceptable hour to be tipsy. Enter Bottomless Suppers at The Exhibit. The Balham restaurant is launching for winter their new Free-Flow Suppers, every […]

Festive Gherkin Pop-Up

It’s begun. Sorry to break the news but in case you missed it the first Christmas advert played on the radio a couple of days ago. The instantly recognisable sleigh bells enough to snap anyone out of their summer-is-over-daydream. Whilst we are all too aware that Harrods launch their Christmas shop in August, we are slightly more traditional when it comes to the festive build-up, preferring to wait, at least, until pumpkins carved/lit/rotting. There is a reason for our eagerness; good things don’t hang around for long. The Gherkin is turning their iconic glass dome into a Snow Globe and […]

The Lodge Winter Pop-Up

What do a secret garden, a wine cellar and a ski lodge have in common? Jimmy Garcia of course. The King of pop-ups is getting ready to launch his latest short-term dining experience, and this time it’s alpine. Following the success of last winter’s residency in Balham, The Lodge is back by popular demand; this time above a pub in Clapham. No warming winter menu is complete without fondues, wild game and hot cocktails, and The Lodge is delivering these aplenty. Cooking up a storm on his state of the art range, specially imported from Courcheval, Jimmy’s dishes include roast […]

Champagne Brunch Party at STK

When we think of brunch we think of a light, airy room with worn wooden floorboards, sugar in mini jam jars and generous plates of eggs benedict, with a hungry queue on the street outside and maybe a few screaming babies. Forget everything you know about brunch and replace it with dim lights, loud music and steak, egg and chips. Much less somewhere to drag your weary hungover self than it is a warm-up venue for your imminent Saturday night antics, STK’s new brunch menu flips everyone’s favourite meal on it’s head. DJs will set the soundtrack to your night […]

Oysters and Champagne on the Southbank

Backseat drinking on a double decker conjures up images of underage boys clutching tinnies but if you are wanting to upgrade this image with something frankly a lot classier but also a bit cheeky then we think we have the answer; it’s big, red and parked up on the Southbank. A double decker is now home to Ed Ford and Ben Hamilton’s ‘The Bloody Oyster’. A crowdfunded venture bringing oysters to the masses in street food form, the boys believe that the humble mollusk should be less of a superior delicacy and available to everyone, the way they were in […]
