  • Mayfair's Brown Hart Gardens is getting an Amalfi-themed terrace for summer

    Mayfair's Brown Hart Gardens is getting an Amalfi-themed terrace for summer

    It's been host to a rather crazy interactive installation for a few months now, but now Brown Hart Gardens is also getting a new terrace for the summer. 

    The Stripes Amalfi Terrace is taking over most of the garden and giving it an Amalfi makeover. That

  • The Sunny Side Up cafe is a Veuve Clicquot breakfast cafe in Soho

    The Sunny Side Up cafe is a Veuve Clicquot breakfast cafe in Soho 

    Veueve Clicquot is coming to Soho with The Sunny Side Cafe, a pop-up that's a little different from their standard fare. Yes, there's Champagne (of course) but this is also a pop-up that's their own take on a classic greasy spoon cafe. As you can imagine from the Champagne house, it's going to be very different from the greasy spoons that you'll have encountered

  • MasterChef The Professionals winner Alex Webb pops up on Park Lane for a three-month residency

  • The Dorchester Bar moves to the rooftop for a spring pop-up

    The Dorchester Bar moves to the rooftop for a spring pop-up

    The Dorchester Rooftop proved to be a pretty big hit when it opened last year (although Jay Rayner wasn't a fan). The space was previously a (very expensive) apartment/suite and saw the hotel converting it into a bar and restaurant. 

    After being closed for winter (it's not blessed with a retractable roof) it's opening up again for the summer where you'll find the main bar of

  • The Korean Englishman's Korean Toast pop-up is back in King's Cross

    The Korean toast pop-up is back in King's Cross

    Updated 10/3/22 with residency closing date:

    If you missed it late last year (as we did), then you'll definitely want to catch one of the hottest pop-ups in town right now. 

    Korean Toast comes from the hugely popular Korean Englishman YouTube channel, a channel

  • Subway are popping up with a pop-up restaurant on a yacht in Canary Wharf

    Fancy impressing your boss or work colleague with a business lunch with a difference this week? Well, if you move fast, there are still tickets available at Subway's swanky pop-up restaurant at West India Quay. And yes, we did use the words swanky and Subway in the same sentence.

    The pop up on a yacht by West India Quay is publicising the sandwich chain's ‘Meal Deal Millionaire’ prize draw. To that end, they're offering

  • Tinie Tempah brings RAPS fried chicken to the John Lewis rooftop

    Tinie Tempah brings RAPS fries chicken to the John Lewis rooftop

    The latest celeb to get into the food game is rapper Tinie Tempah. While you may immediately think "it's going to be something to do with tempeh, isn't it?" it is, in fact, a new fried chicken venture called RAPS (we see what he did there). 

    It's in two parts - delivery and a pop-up at the John Lewis rooftop space Willows on The Roof. He's teamed up with chef Big Has for

    Another Pantry brings food from London's best restaurant to King's Cross

    A pop-up food store is coming to Coal Drops Yard for one week and it'll have an extremely impressive array of goods from some of the UK's best restaurants. 

    Another Pantry is the brainchild of food writer and photographer Safia Shakarchi, who has also just set up an online recipe platform with the same name. Here's what's coming to the shop:

  • A rosé bar is popping up at Selfridges

    A rosé bar is popping up at Selfridges

    With spring nearly upon us, Selfridges is launching a special rosé bar for the season. Teaming up with Moët Hennessy, they're opening Rosé Lumière - a space that's designed to be like a "traditional romantic French cinema house."

    There are two parts to this pop-up. You can grab a stool at the bar or, if you're going all-in on rosé, take over the six-seater booth. The wine on offer will be from Veuve

  • The London popup Champagne bar where a glass is just £2.33

    aldi pop up champagne bar london

    Popping up briefly in St Christopher's Place this week is a Champagne bar with a difference. The signage out front doesn't give the game away but Veuve is actually a popup from Aldi, selling the supermarket's own-brand - and award winning - Veuve Monsigny Champagne.

    Billed as "the UK’s cheapest Champagne bar in one of the UK’s most expensive postcodes", Veuve will be open until Sunday to give weary Christmas shoppers

    They already have two London stores at the Westfield supermalls, but in the run up to Christmas you can now try all manner of sweet treats from My Cookie Dough's first central London popup.

    This week they're opening up a festive popup on Charing Cross Road, just around the corner from Leicester Square. And, in addition to their usual flavours they're putting on two specials just for this spot.

    The first is a 24K

  • Louie Louie pop up with Little Louie at Elephant Park

    We're all supposed to be multitaskers in the new economy, so we applaud new venture Elephant Stores at Elephant Park in Elephant & Castle which is a multi-use space with three pop up businesses in it.

    Swing by here and you can get your bike fixed with Fix Your Cycle, buy homemade crafts from the SoLo Craft Fair and pop into the new Little Louie cafe.

    The latter is a two year 'pop-up' for

  • JKS are popping up with VIỆTPopulaire on the old XU site

    jks viet populaire pop up soho london

    We've been wondering what JKS Restaurants were going to do with the site where XU used to be, ever since it was confirmed that the Taiwanese restaurant was not going to reopen. Now, they've answered that question - at least for the short term.

    They're going to reopen it as a seven-week Vietnamese pop-up, VIỆTPopulaire, taking as their inspiration the street food "found in the coffee shops and beer stations of

  • Coravin launches a by-the-glass pop-up wine bar in Mayfair

    Coravine Wine Bar

    You may have come across Coravin before - they are behind those special machines that can serve glasses of wine while keeping the bottle sealed up so it stays fresh. They've appeared in a number of bars, restaurants and wine bars - but now they're going it alone with a pop-up wine bar in Mayfair. They're taking over La Cave Wine Bar which is tucked away in Lancashire Court.

    At the pop-up, they'll have 300 wines available by
