POP UP BARS 

The Bunyadi aka. London's naked restaurant

Time to let it all hang out 'cos the guys behind ABQ are opening London's first naked restaurant and the list is bare long. Last time we checked it was at 33K.  The concept's all about being freed from the trappings of modern life, which apparently are clothes. And we thought restaurants that banned iPhones were being a bit harsh.  Just try not to spill hot food on your lap. OUCH.

It's here!

Little Nan's Rio Bar Our favourite p*ssed up grandma is back and this time she's hitting Kingsland High Street. Hiding away in the secret rooms at Rio Cinema, she'll be dishing out her signature cocktails in teapots as well as tropical craft lagers. Expect 90's bangers and fun times.

Get stuffed with Burger Bear's famous Bacon Jam and Norweigan King Crab from Prawnogprahy (don't be tempted to knock down the giant pink mascot). It's open every day, so you can drop in from 7am and grab an espresso from Relax to help you get your buzz back, then again after work before the beats kick in and party really starts.

BarChick looks forward to soaking up some rays whilst scoffing retro boozy ice cream floats and psychedelic rainbow ice cream sandwiches. Booze slushies, BBQs and WIFI; we know where our meetings will be! Then we’ll let out our inner hippy at yoga classes and tie dye workshops. Immense.

Open: Now! 535 Oxford Street, London W1C 2QW House of Peroni It was epic last year and BarChick has no doubt the 2016 summer pop up is gunna rock too. It's set right on the canal -  so we're all set for a sun tanning and Negroni fest.  The booze is going to be sh*t hot, with cocktail legend Simone Caporale (from best bar in the world, The Artesian) heading up the drinks.

London’s Best Pop Ups

Rooftop Film Club & Wooftop Film Club

You no longer have to leave the b*tch at home – ‘cos at Peckham’s Bussey Building you can bring your pooch along as your date.  They even get popcorn and dog beer. No need to buy the hound a ticket, just bring them along, shotgun the deck chair next to you and settle into date night.

This year Rooftop Film Club is sponsored by Nespresso so expect some kinda coffee spiked booze alongside drinks from Spirited Mixers and grub from pop-ups Forza Win and RockaDollar Dogs (ex Hawksmoor chef, you know these dawgs are gonna rock).  Film wise keep an eye on listings but they serve-up cult and classic movies as well as Hollywood blockbusters fresh from the editing suite.

Where the party at?

Peckham – Bussey Building: 133 Rye Lane, Peckham SE15 4ST (for Wooftop Cinema)

Shoreditch – Queen of Hoxton: 1 – 5 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3JX

Kensington – Roof Gardens: 99 Kensington High Street, London W8 5SA

Stratford – Roof East: Level 8, Stratford Multi-storey Car Park, Great Eastern Way, Stratford, E15 1XE

POP UP BARS 

The Bunyadi aka. London’s naked restaurant

Time to let it all hang out ‘cos the guys behind ABQ are opening London’s first naked restaurant and the list is bare long. Last time we checked it was at 33K.  The concept’s all about being freed from the trappings of modern life, which apparently are clothes. And we thought restaurants that banned iPhones were being a bit harsh.  Just try not to spill hot food on your lap. OUCH.

It’s here!

Little Nan’s Rio Bar

Our favourite p*ssed up grandma is back and this time she’s hitting Kingsland High Street. Hiding away in the secret rooms at Rio Cinema, she’ll be dishing out her signature cocktails in teapots as well as tropical craft lagers. Expect 90’s bangers and fun times.

On ’til: August 14th, Wednesday-Saturday: 5pm-12am (2am on Friday/Saturday)

The Rio Cinema, 107 Kingsland High Street, E8 2PB

The Magic Roundabout

A disco paradise on the Old Street roundabout

It’s a freaking party on Old Street roundabout! This is the Kickstarter project from the dude behind Burger Bear, Tom Reany, who wanted to create a burger joint that doubles up as a ‘disco paradise’. SOLD. Get stuffed with Burger Bear’s famous Bacon Jam and Norweigan King Crab from Prawnogprahy (don’t be tempted to knock down the giant pink mascot). It’s open every day, so you can drop in from 7am and grab an espresso from Relax to help you get your buzz back, then again after work before the beats kick in and party really starts. Honk if you’re horny.

7am-11pm // Free entry

Queen of Hoxton‘s Psychedelic Summer of Love

The Queen of Hoxton rooftop transforms itself twice a year with a new awesome theme each time. This summer it’s going all flower power with ‘a psychadelic Summer of Love theme’. Groovy baby! BarChick looks forward to soaking up some rays whilst scoffing retro boozy ice cream floats and psychedelic rainbow ice cream sandwiches. Booze slushies, BBQs and WIFI; we know where our meetings will be! Then we’ll let out our inner hippy at yoga classes and tie dye workshops. Immense.

Open: Now – October 2016

1-5 Curtain Road, London, EC2A 3JX

Pergola on the roof at Television Centre

Think sexy Med-style terrace with lots of wall climbing evergreens and cheeky summer fun. There’s four restaurants (Patty & Bun, Salt Yard, Rabbit and Le Coq) but you can sit wherever, so no worries if you and your mate disagree over who has the best buns. There’s also two bars and 400 seats – so you won’t struggle to nab a seat. Plus there’s a roaming booze trolly to ensure you’re well watered.

Rooftop opens: NOW – Sunday 29 August 2016.

Wednesday – Friday: 6pm – 11pm. Saturday:12pm – 11pm. Sunday:12pm – 9.30pm

Frank’s cafe  

The really f*cking cool one. We’re yet to hear what’s in store for this unique multi-storey carpark bar, but judging by our experience last year it’s safe to say we’re pretty excited about heading back to Frank’s this summer. See ya’ll there.

Open: Now! Yeah

95A Rye Lane, London, SE15 4ST

Notch

If you’re somehow caught up in the Oxford Street madness – wah! we know a place you can escape to. Last year it was Roofnic, this year it’s an ‘industrial playground’ which means reclaimed school science tables, scaffolding and rooftop swings overlooking the street below. Japanese street food all day, pizzas, cocktails and sharing punches. Sold.

Open: Now!

535 Oxford Street, London W1C 2QW

House of Peroni

It was epic last year and BarChick has no doubt the 2016 summer pop up is gunna rock too. It’s set right on the canal –  so we’re all set for a sun tanning and Negroni fest.  The booze is going to be sh*t hot, with cocktail legend Simone Caporale (from best bar in the world, The Artesian) heading up the drinks. Then you’ve got Francesco Mazzei (Sartoria and L’Anima) looking after the food. Put that together with hot Italian bar staff and we’re smokin’.

Open: NOW

FOOD FOCUS

Keeping Up With The Joneses

This sounds frickin’ awesome – an insane dinner party hosted by Mrs Jones at her new home in Clerkenwell Green where she’ll be serving up edible vodka toothpaste, Hawksmoor cocktails in detergent bottles, gin & tonic marshmallows and macaroon dishwasher tablets – plus her picnic classics. Also expect washing powder snow storm and a disco laundrette with Whirlpool cocktail makers and edible liquid tabs. BarChick’s head is spinning already. If you want to explore this lady’s crazy pad, act quick ’cause it’s only on for four days baby! Snap up your tickets here.

10 Clerkenwell Green, London EC1R 0DU // Thurs 7th – Sun 10th July 2016, 5.30pm- 11pm

Model Market

Run by the same guys behind the epic Street Feast, think loads of drool-worthy food from the likes of Mother Flipper and Mama’s Jerk Station and loads of booze stations like Rum Shack and Lewisham High Line.

Friday-Saturday: 5pm-1am. Free before 7pm, £3 after.
