There are so many pop ups on at the moment it's surely almost impossible to get around them all, let alone afford to get around them all. So to that end we have gathered up some of our favourite ones for you. Feast your eyes and get your wallets ready for WJ London's top 5 London pop up bars of the moment.
The Butcher Bar at Anise
Meat hooks. Feathered taxidermy. Faux skins. This is The Butcher Bar at Anise, a provocative pop-up that brings all the butchery and blood of the hunt to the glossy heart of the City. Suits are urged to come armed with appetites: executive chef Vivek Singh and head chef Abdul Yaseen have killed it with a menu thatincludes the signature Butcher's Block – a sharing selection of beef, venison and grouse served with a cleaver for guests to carve their own cuts – as well as share-and-tear bites such as devilled chicken livers, rabbit terrine with Kasundi mustard and tandoori grouse-nest pizza. There's a killer cocktail hit-list, too, courtesy of Bar Manager Ben Newton-Syms: highlights include The Buffalo Butcher, Mary Had A Little Martini and Deer Me. This summer, paint the town red.
Open Season started on the 20th August and runs through to the 30th November
Frank's Cafe & Campari Bar at Peckham Rye
Only open in the fairer months and soon to be turned into a multi use venue, Frank's Cafe & Campari is open again now through until mid to end of September depending on our weather run. You can expect art, performance and great food all atop a car park that may not look friendly but can be forgiven for housing such a cool bar. A great place to watch the sun set.
95a Rye Lane, London, SE15 4ST - Sunday 30th June throughout summer
The Botanical Gin Garden, Carom Soho
Who would have thought you could find a botanical garden in Soho? Well you can! Tanqueray has teamed up with Soho bar Carom to create a fragrant, interesting gin experience for the herb and spice searcher. Each month has a different theme and during the two left you can expect a Tanqueray no.Ten infusion evening with Master Distiller Tom Nichol and for October when things get cooler - Cocktail at Home : Foraging in Autumn. Your one stop guide to amazing Autumnal cocktails.
Open now through to October.
BOOM Burger London, The Earl of Portobello
BOOM Burger London can be found weekly at The Earl of Portobello, in North Kensington. They will feed any last longing urges you are left with (if you still have any) when it comes to London burgers. A few twists to the classic may alight taste buds anew getting a little lazy from burger over indulgence. These include the BOOM Burger - with bacon jam and cheese and the Jamaican BOOM - a jerk chicken burger.
Every week Wednesday - Saturday
Propstore, The National Theatre
The Propstore can be found at The National Theatre. It's an interesting, cosy pop-up riverfront cafe and bar. The name lends a suggestion to what is within, a treat for any seasoned theatre goer with props from some of the most well known plays performed in the National Theatre. This pop up bar serves both drinks and street food and on Saturdays and Fridays stays open until 2am.
Until the end of the summer, South Bank, London, SE1 9PX
