5 Pop-Ups To Eat & Drink At Before Summer Ends

5 Pop-Ups To Eat & Drink At Before Summer Ends

In case you didn’t know, we’ve been in the midst of a heatwave, also known as an actual summer. Who knew? While some may be complaining about the daily struggle of what to wear, switching moisturiser for sun cream and the constant fear of a sweaty upper lip, for the majority it means one thing and one thing only. Alfresco dining and drinking. There’s something about sipping Aperol in the sunshine - preferably on a rooftop - that fills us with all kinds of joy, right? Summer pop-ups have been a favourite of many a Londoner for a while and are becoming kind of a big deal nationwide. So before you go rushing to your local beer garden, you might want to add these to your to-eat and drink list…

Paradise Pods, London

Coppa Club’s igloos were a hit last winter and have had a tropical Tulum makeover for the summer months. Think palm leaves, a beach bar and enough cacti to shake a prick, sorry, stick at. Brunch in the sun sounds good to us. Available until September 30th.

Beautiful Allotment, London

Brought to you by Bourne & Hollingsworth, head over to the Geffrye Museum in Hoxton and eat, drink and sit side-by-side with potting sheds, tractors, treehouses and daybeds.  Dreamy BBQ locations don’t get much better than this. Open until 26th August. 

Fritto, Liverpool 

The Liverpool Italian pop-up is making waves for all the right reasons in the form of its deep fried calzones and vegan donuts. No you’re dribbling. Catch them around the city and sometimes Manchester, too. 

Negroni Fountain, Manchester

It’s already done the rounds in London and is currently nestled away at The Anthologist in Spinningfields. Inspired by Spanish drinking fountains, this one’s filled with Negroni and is the perfect accompaniment to a Mezze board. We’re sold. Available until 12th August – be quick!

Sip & Slide, Edinburgh

As adults, there comes a time where it’s no longer acceptable go to a playground. Lucky for us, Sip and Slide have combined three of our favourite things: a bar, a great view and a slide. It’s everything we ever wanted and more. Open until 25th August.
