Here today, gone tomorrow? Pop ups are hot tickets (unless they become permanent!), giving you the chance to sample some of the freshest ideas and menus. Blink and you'll miss them, though, so bookmark our page of Pop ups and get in there quick so you can tell everyone about how you heard about the hottest new permanent pop up opening first. Go you.
Welcome to Queen of Hoxton’s new winter rooftop pop-up and get ready for our most ambitious concept yet. Once Upon A WigWam, opening 22nd October, will cast its spell over the skies of East London with the help of festival production maestros, Mad Ferret. Inspired by the the Grimms’ brothers Fairy Tales, look out for interpretations of well-known stories like Hansel & Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel as you get lost in its fantastical forest and magical menu, bringing you a drinking and dining experience London’s yet to offer.View Website
Made entirely of wood, Django Bango is a bona fide buckaroo town with sprawling multi-storey buildings and dusty streets; complete with a Saloon Bar, creaky church confessional and the risk of jail time for any outlaws. Folks are free to roam the land, feast on street food from American style food stalls, or drop in to the general stores to pick up their cowboy clobber. Drinking and dancing in the streets is favoured in this town, but guests can also curl up on bales of hay in one of the many softly lit country houses. The large Saloon Bar is stocked with reasonably priced beer and liquor and features the whistle-wetting signature cocktail ‘Badlands Brew’, to cowboy you up.View Website
Bringing back the humble oyster and discovering everyone’s ‘perfect’ Bloody Mary on a London double decker bus. Served in all shapes and sizes, we serve them fresh, boiled, grilled, BBQ’d, deep-fried. Our menu primarily focuses on Oysters, although we have ‘oyster alternatives’ for the vegetarians and non-fish lovers. As for our Bloody Marys and cocktails, we’re super excited to have Iain McPherson, our cocktail guru, working his magic into our menu. A Bloody Mary is so much more than just a ‘hangover cure’, and after mastering a wide spectrum of Bloody preferences, we’re quietly confident that we’ve got something for everyone– even vegetarians.View Website
Mother Clucker serves up traditional southern friend chicken that's marinated in a sweet tea brine, double coated in buttermilk and a secret blend of spices for super extra crispness. Served up up along side; Cajun fries, Mac & Cheese, Black Eyed Peas, Rice, Cornbread and Biscuits. We serve tea brined, buttermilk soaked, twice battered fried chicken from our converted US Army ambulance currently housed in the Truman Brewery. We’ve only (officially) been around since March of 2013 but have been reviewed by everyone from Zagat to Conde Nast Traveller and have served everywhere from pop-ups in pubs like The Endurance (RIP) to festivals like Field Day and foodie events like Street Feast.View Website
Box fresh Brixton has just opened its very own container village. Start-ups sit alongside the restaurants and pop-ups with 20 vendors rustling up a world of food. We featured Zoe's Ghana Kitchen not so long ago and we're pleased that she's nabbed one of the coveted containers because it means our foodie fix is only a few short stops on the Victoria line away.

Not just the name of a trippy cartoon but the latest venture from Burger Bear and Prawnography. Finally that awkward space in Old Street roundabout has been put to good use with a brand new burger bar and seafood restaurant popping up, along with a bar and some beats. The best bit? It’s open every day from 7am (yes, 7am!) until 11pm - you just need to find your way in through one of Old Street Station’s many exits.View Website
