August 2015's Hottest Pop Ups

The Crayfish Festival-Fika

It's a bottomless crayfish party at Fika and they're waiting for you to descend into the food pit. From July 30th to August 16th, this Nordic enclave on Brick Lane'll be plating you up massive amounts of chicken liver pate, pickled herring, cured salmon & crayfish, naturally. Snag your tickets, whip out the loose jeans (you'll need em) & say yes to the traditional Swedish party hats & bottles of shnapps.

From 20th July 2015// 161 Brick Lane, London E1 6SB


Camden Beach Presented by Stoli Rooftop vodka views Beach pop ups may be on every corner in London right now, but if an oyster card can get us to deckchairs, sand and cocktails then we’ll grab our bikinis and race you there. Camden Roundhouse terrace (did you know it’s the neighbourhood’s biggest outdoor space?) has been transformed into a seaside with beach huts, sexy views and a Stoli lemonade van mixing up an awesome summer serve. Go get a round of the fanciest vodie lemonade you’ll have all summer - fresh mint, fresh lemon juice and a generous serving of Stoli vodka - it’s way more refreshing than any you’ll get at your mates barbeque’s this month. Cool down with Stoli lemonade sorbet after filling up on fish and chips at Fishy Business, sausages at Pork and, if you’re not a vodka fan (or went too heavy on the stuff last night) join the queue at Rum Shack a Lack instead. 17th July - 23rd August // Chalk Farm Road, London NW1 8EH // Opening times vary stoli

Go try the Bacon Salt Bloody Mary at Oink, the new pork pop up taking over the kitchen every week this summer at Crisis Cafe on Commercial Street. Get a group of mates together and fight over sharing plates like Pig’s Cheek & Black Pudding Nuggets, Pulled Pork Shoulder and Sweet & Sour Glazed Chilli Ribs and keep those salty Bloody Mary’s coming all night. If you manage more than one sharing plate, at least you’ll of achieved something that day.

Beach Hut at York & Albany

Pimm’s ice lollies!

Camden’s going to the seaside at this coastal courtyard of deckchairs, real sand and candy-coloured beach huts. Grab a Seaweed Martini (served up in a sandcastle bucket!) and get in line for a Pimm’s ice lolly. Trust us, you don’t want to leave without trying one. The food will be whipped up by experts at York & Albany too, so order mini fish ‘n’ chips and nab yourself a deckchair - this one’s about as close to a boozy holiday as you can get on a night out in the city. York & Albany, 127-129 Parkway, Camden, London NW1 7PS // 22nd May - end August york (1)
