Hawker House Street Feast's packed their rucksack and journeyed from Dalston to a massive multileveled warehouse in Canada Water to keep us sated and sheltered. The centerpiece of it all is a three-metre grill that smokes up Argentine style meats, so you know where BarChick'll be when the chill hits. Pair that with a cheeky game of whisky roulette (8 quid spins for top shelf stuff!) and you'll warm up in all the right places. There's also 13 vendors to choose from... everything from Mother Clucker to Yum Bun and a wicked array of bars serving everything from American craft brewskies to Milk & Honey bespoke cocktails and our fave Kamm and Sons getting herbal.

London’s Best Pop Ups

London’s Best Pop Ups

Pop-ups are still a thing, but only if you’re going to the best.  Here are London’s hottest temporary fixtures for booze, food and other weird and wonderful residencies going on in the city.

POP UP BARS 

Swan On A Hot Gin Roof

Gin cocktails on a Soho rooftop… hell YEAH. Sipsmith’s getting punny on the roof of the Ham Yard Hotel and we say book in pronto cos this space is usually a private affair. Forget the pub and the craft beers for a night and swap then for some mega al fresco views, woolen blankets and historically-inspired cocktails. Warm G & Ts (seriously, they work) and Steaming Juleps don’t come around often after all.

Tickets are £14 and it’s open every night except Monday.

1 Ham Yard, London W1D 7DT // From 26th January – 14th February 2016

Once Upon A Wigman

A Goddamn Gingerbread Bar

The Queen of Hoxton’s got a new winter wigwam up on the roof and it’s got total Hansel and Gretel vibes. They’ve got some kinda magical forest up there and lists of some killer winter cocktails like Hot Toddys and Buttered Rum.

1-5 Curtain Road, London EC2A 3JX // From 22nd October – end of March 2016

Little Nan’s Tropical Den

Our favourite p*ssed up grandma is back and this time she’s hitting the streets of Peckham. Hiding away in the secret rooms at the Golden Anchor Caribbean pub, she’ll be dishing out her signature cocktails in teapots as well as tropical craft lagers, Caribbean dinners and a motherf*cking Pat Butcher Vs Del Boy photo booth! Get in for tiki tunes, a load of fun and tropical boozing.

The Basement at The Golden Anchor, 16 Evelina, Road, London SE15 2DX // Until 28th February 2016

Django Bango

There’s a new sherif round London town and he’s calling all caballeros and buckaroos to come to his Wild West world. He’s gone for the makeshift wood look, so you’re sure to feel like you’ve been plopped in an Arizona ghost town circa the 19th century. Mosey down the dusty streets (plastic) gun in hand (relax), hit up the saloon bar for the hard stuff and fess up at the church confessional cos you’ve probs done some naughty sh*t recently. Only got a pair of skinnys in the closet? They’ve got a general store chock full of all the right gear for you. You’ll sure be needing it for the hoedown. GIDDY UP.

22 – 36 Raven Row, Whitechapel, London, E1 2EG // 19th February – 2nd April 2016 // Fri – Sat: 7pm – 1am

FOOD FOCUS

Hawker House

Street Feast’s packed their rucksack and journeyed from Dalston to a massive multileveled warehouse in Canada Water to keep us sated and sheltered. The centerpiece of it all is a three-metre grill that smokes up Argentine style meats, so you know where BarChick’ll be when the chill hits. Pair that with a cheeky game of whisky roulette (8 quid spins for top shelf stuff!) and you’ll warm up in all the right places. There’s also 13 vendors to choose from… everything from Mother Clucker to Yum Bun and a wicked array of bars serving everything from American craft brewskies to Milk & Honey bespoke cocktails and our fave Kamm and Sons getting herbal.

Canada Street, London SE16 2XU // 29th January – 2nd April 2016

The Punch Room’s Scandal Water Afternoon Tea

The Edition’s showing us how afternoon tea’s done this weekend when they launch Scandal Water. Expect indulgent treats like caviar, cakes and shortbread alongside wicked Japanese teas that have been made into punches. Davide Segat, Bars Manager at The London EDITION, has created a punch from each of the teas from the English Milk Punch to Teddy Hook Punch, it’s all a ploy to loosen tongues a little and give you the opportunity to be the most scandalous version of yourself. We’re into it.

It’s available every Friday and Saturday with seatings between 3PM and 4PM at £35 for the choice of three pairings, with the room transforming into the Punch Room at 5pm.

10 Berners St, London W1T 3NP

Creme Egg Cafe

Bloody good news coming from Soho yet again: Cadbury’s Creme Egg (our national treasure) has broken outta its foil and taken over a 3 floor space where Creme Egg toasties, full spreads and an adult ball pond are happening. Get involved! If you can’t blag a ticket online, hit up the queue with fingers crossed.

26 Greek Street, Soho, W1D 5DE // Until 6th March 2016 // Fri: 5pm – 9pm, Sat – Sun: 2pm – 6pm

Claw at The Three Compasses

Claw has just started their 3 month residency at Dalston’s The Three Compasses and their kitchen is emanating the kind of magical smell that arises when you put a bunch of crab burger connoisseurs together in a kitchen with loads of fresh meat and crafty tools. There will be a continuing mass exodus of crabs from Start Bay in Devon to East London until the end of January. The Padstow Octopus will also be making an appearance inside a brioche bun with BBQ, pickled cucumber and coriander. Side of tarragon salted fries and crab arancini with harissa mayo, you say? Banging.

The Three Compasses, 99 Dalston Lane, E8 1NH//16th November 2015 – 31st January 2016//Mon – Fri: 5pm – 10pm, Sat – Sun: 11am – 10pm

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
