London’s Best Pop Ups

From naked pool parties, to pitch black bars and blend-your-own whisky dens. We don’t know where to start. If you’re into that you should also check out these insane Christmas pop ups too. 

Big Apple Brixton

The team behind Brixton Beach Boulevard are back with a kick-ass 70s style winter pop-up.
Over the summer they bought Londoner’s the beach, now they’re bringing the hood of Harlem to a rooftop in Brixton. So dust off your flares and grab your squad as Big Apple Brixton is here and it’s awesome.
Underneath a canvas canopy, this rooftop is a crazy 70s world of street food, cocktails, music and immersive theatre – wowser! This place has got three indoor bars, a nightclub based on iconic Nu Yowk City venues and themed rooms available for private hire include a barbershop, record store, Latino chapel and peep show (kinky). You can fill up on American bites from Mac To The Future or big pizza slabs from Grandmaster Slice, so there really is no need to go anywhere else! And why would you need to when BarChick can get you free entry and FREE BOOZE when you make a group booking for more 10 people.

27th October 2016 – 1st January 2017 // The Brixton Rooftop, Popes Road, Brixton, London, SW9 8JH

Pitch Black

90 minutes. 5 drinks. Sounds like a blinder. It is. Because the whole thing’s done in pitch black darkness. You’ll be let in gently through a lit hallway and intro’d to your server before being plunged into darkness as the lights go down. Then a 90 minute showdown kicks off with bubbles, 2 sensory awakening cocktails, amuse bouches and finishing it off with a wine tasting in the dark (so go easy on that swirl) and 2 glasses of the good stuff.

Sick of your colleagues face’s? This is your Christmas party sorted. Blind date to plan? You know what to do. Sessions lasts 90 minutes, tickets cost £48 and you’ve got to book ahead. Good job we can sort your session and get you 20% off your tickets then hey? Message us and we’ll sort it.

Naked Pool Party 

Naked people, in a pool, and waterproof body paint. It might sound like something off Red Tube but this is not a drill. Strip off and bare your bits to the world at this naked pool party. Guests can wear beachwear or underwear, but if you’re keen to strip off – you’re encouraged to cover up with waterproof body paint. Ease any nerves with free shots, handed out by bar-staff-in-the-buff. An all-day party from midday to 5pm, with hula-hoopers and magicians on hand to – maybe avert the eyes?

The London Shuffle Club

You probably don’t have a freakin’ clue what a Shuffleboard is – that’s probably ‘cos it’s a retro game hot stuff American sailors used to play on their battleships way back in the 1940s. But now it’s heading over to London baby (‘cos we’re well over golf now). It involves sliding discs (known as Biscuits) with a fork thing (called a Tang) along smooth wooden boards and landing them in chalked up targets. Sounds easy enough right? There’ll also be loads of booze, neon, disco choons – and even Prosecco served from a a vintage motorbike and sidecar. Yes date night!

Opening: 12th October

Courts: £40 an hour, no limit on the number of players (bookings open end of September – get BarChick Concierge to sort that) // Open 7 days a week
