Things To Do

Jason Allen 28/02/23

Your March Agenda

Ah, March.

It’s the only month that’s also a direct order.

And given how much stuff is going on over the next few weeks, you’re going to want to follow it.

Because you’ll want your legs to whisk you sharpish to everything from a completely unique concert that dissects a classic piece of music and allows you to wander through it; to a stunning volumetric laser installation inside one of the most cavernously large spaces in the city; a chance to do some life drawing with models who literally might eat you; an immersive show that’ll take you deep into the earth’s most diverse biomes thanks to vast 360-degree screens; a whole constellation of supperclubs from Finland, New York, Afghanistan, Vietnam, and the mid-19th century, and the welcome resurrection of a globe-trotting pop up bar with live music every night




Brilliant Jerks

Uber. There, we said it. That’s what Brilliant Jerks is about.

Because this play – taking stage at the Southwark Playhouse throughout the month – takes pains to artfully skirt around any mention of its inspiration by name, instead referring to the idea (“Tap a button. Get a ride.”) and the notion that it’s based on the creation of “a multi-billion-dollar app, which you might even use to get home afterwards…”. And after having debuted back in 2018, now it’s back, and it’s definitely getting more than 4.7 stars…

Details: 1st – 25th March | The Southwark Playhouse, 77-85 Newington Causeway, SE1 6BD | £24 (£19 Conc, £16 Previews)

The Girl Power Experience

When The Spice Girls dropped the phrase ‘Girl Power’ into everyone’s collective lexicon back in the ’90s, it became one of the cultural touchstones of the era. And now, as if to prove it, decades later an eight piece band called The Girl Power Experience are about to step onto the stage at Omeara and bring it right back. You’ll be singing your lungs out to acts like Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé, Girls Aloud, Diana Ross, Little Mix and, yes, The Spice Girls in a euphoric mass karaoke experience…

Details: 2nd March | OMEARA, 6 O’Meara St, SE1 1TE | £12.94

One Track Minds

WIlton's Music Hal

For those of you with one track minds…

…no, this event isn’t about that.

Instead, it’s an uplifting, thought-provoking, life-affirming evening that combines live storytelling with music – resulting in a kind of wild, inspirational mash-up of TED Talks and Desert Island Discs. Returning to the crumbling, Victorian beauty that is Wilton’s Music Hall at the start of the month, it sees a bunch of thoroughly interesting people take to the stage to talk about a song that changed their lives.

Details: 2nd & 3rd March | Wilton’s Music Hall, Graces Alley, E1 8JB | £9-£17

The Dive at Wax Cave

This sounds like a very different experience to say the least. It’s the debut show from a new immersive outfit called Stormjar so, to be clear, we haven’t tried it ourselves, and frankly it sounds terrifying – but nevertheless, it’s too interesting not to talk about. It’s a VR experience designed to simulate a cave dive that goes horribly wrong in a very supernatural way. You’ll get your dive helmet strapped on (aka your VR headset), and be plunged into the depths of a dark, ominous, underwater cave, with only 8 ‘divers’ per trip. And, it’s less than a tenner…

Details: 3rd & 4th March | Theatre Deli, 107 Leadenhall Street, EC3A 4AF | £8.68

Maker’s Cabinet Repair Shop

The Maker’s Cabinet Repair Shop is here to fix a) your old, broken stuff, and b) your weekend plans. They’re not only offering up a completely free service for breathing new life into your broken gadgets & heirlooms, but you’ll also get complimentary tea/coffee & biscuits, live music, and a good ol’ fashioned pencil-sharpening competition.

Details: 4th March | Makers Cabinet 4-8 Vyner Street, E2 9DG | Free, but you’ll need to reserve a spot

’90s Silent Disco at BAC


There’s going to be a ’90s silent disco in Battersea’s pretty stunning, and very appropriately named Grand Hall this month. Everyone will get headphones armed with 3 channels of music – just make sure you Don’t Speak.

Details: 4th March | The Grand Hall Battersea Arts Centre Lavender Hill, SW11 5TN | £27

Kew Orchid Festival

There are an estimated 28,000 different species of orchid in the world. Which, for a little context, is four times the number of mammal species.

And while you won’t see quite all of them at Kew Gardens’ new floral festival, they’ve done a pretty good job of amassing as many as possible from the rainforests ofCameroon to create a breathtaking miniature rainforest in their Princess of Wales Conservatory…

Details: Until 5th March | Princess of Wales Conservatory, Kew Gardens | £17

House of Holi

Get ready to paint the town red. And yellow. And blue. And orange. And pink. And green.Because Cinnamon Kitchen are setting up an all-white party pod to help celebrate India’s festival of colours, Holi. It’s basically a huge, all-white play pod in the middle of Devonshire Square, meaning it’s completely weather-proofed too. You’ll be given a set of all-white overalls to put over your regular clothes, then let into the main space with a virtually limitless supply of paint-powder for a 30-min rainbow fight.

Details: 5th & 8th-12th March | 9 Devonshire Square, EC2M 4YL | £10

WOW Festival

Women of The World

The Women of the World festival is, essentially, attempting to inch society a little further forward into a future where the Women of the World festival doesn’t need to exist.

And while that may seem like a slightly dispiriting foundation stone, the event that’s come out of it is actually incredibly inspiring and uplifting.

Because arriving at the Southbank Centre this month are some of the world’s coolest, funniest, bravest, and most brilliant women – speakers, activists and performers alike – who are gathering together as a celebration, but also to have a frank, and honest discussion about the major, worldwide obstacles that still face women, girls and non-binary people today…

Details: 10th-12th March | Southbank Centre | Belvedere Road, London, SE1 8XX | Free (some events ticketed)

Cirque Berserk

The idea behind Cirque Berserk is to take an old school big top circus, and squeeze it all into a live indoor stage show. And considering that they’ve been around for the past ten years, it appears that they’ve succeeded. This month, they’re popping up at Riverside Studios (also home to Sam’s Riverside) where they’ll be cramming 30+ acrobats, stuntmen, daredevils, contortionists, aerialists, and performers onstage alongside the legendary motorcycle Globe of Death.

Details: Until 11th March | Sam’s Riverside, 1 Crisp Walk, W6 9DN | £34.50-£39

Wildlife Drawing at Carousel

Caution: these models wear fur. The subjects posing for budding artists at Carousel’s life-drawing class this month are indeed going to be wolves. In a restaurant. Although, if we’re going to get technical about it, they’re actually British Lupines (more closely related to dogs) but the point still stands. Either way, there’ll be a drawing expert and an animal wrangler on hand to make sure you’re not on the menu.

Details: 12th March | Carousel, 23 Charlotte St, W1T 1RL | £35

BFI Flare

BFI Flare is the nation’s largest LGBTQ+ film festival, and this will be the largest BFI Flare yet. Not only will there be 57 feature films and 90 shorts, but you’ll also find the world’s first LGBTQ+ virtual reality museum, in which you can wander through a digital exhibition of artefacts curated exclusively by queer people.

Details: 15th to 26th March | BFI Southbank, Belvedere Rd, SE1 8XT

DEBUT at the Brunel Museum

DEBUT first debuted back in 2015.

They’re a group of extremely talented classical musicians who decided to band together in order to play accessible, fun concerts in interesting & unusual spaces. Since then, they’ve put on hundreds of shows in places like lighthouses, ancient operating theatres and Victorian merchant ships, becoming magnets for effusively acclamatory reviews along the way. And the Thames Tunnel Shaft at the Brunel Museum is both very interesting and highly unusual…

Details: 16th March | The Brunel Museum | Railway Avenue, SE16 4LF | £28

St Patrick’s Day

Sun Tavern fun birthday drinks

This year, for the first time since 2017, St. Pat’s falls on a Friday. And that means the usual but-it’s-a-school-night fetters will be recklessly tossed aside in favour of stout, whiskey, and fun. Practically the whole city will be turning green for the day, but if you want a few suggestions to whet your appetite, you might want to start the festivities at the official St. Patrick’s Day Parade & Festival, grab a drink or two at The Sun Tavern, maybe head up to the rooftop at Skylight, get a live Irish band at the UK’s biggest beer hall, sip an Irish coffee at a stunning Fitzrovia pub, and dance the night away at The Piano Works

Details: 17th March | Across London

Thin Air

Thin Air

Thin Air is making its way into The Beams over in the Royal Docks this month, just across the river from Greenwich. And The Beams – if you don’t know it – is all-caps, underlined, italicised, HUGE. It’s 55,000 square feet of industrial space, so quite understandably, the first art exhibition to go on show there is going to make use of that scale in interesting ways. Interesting ways like algorithmically generated images, massive volumetric laser arrays, and large-scale installations that sync with booming sound & music.

Details: 17th March – 4th June 2023 | The Beams, Factory Rd, E16 2HB | £25

Souls Grown Deep Like Rivers

Thornton Dial portrait - Souls Grown Deep like the River

Souls Grown Deep Like Rivers is coming to the Royal Academy this month. It’s going to be a showcase of the unique artistic traditions & storytelling methods of African American artists from the southern United States, featuring a great many artists who had no formal training, no access to traditional art materials, and no gallery space to exhibit. Many of them had to show their work in their own yards. Whether the Royal Academy is a step up or a step down for them is up for debate…

Details: 17th March — 18th June 2023 | Royal Academy of Arts, Burlington House, Piccadilly, W1J 0BD | £15

The Candlelight Club

Returning to its secret home this month, Candlelight Club is a decadent, 1920’s-styled soirée, in a hidden, candle-lit London location with live music from the Hot Strings Review, cabaret with your host Champagne Charlie, Charleston dancing with the Gatsby Girls, tarot readers, absinthe and gramophone DJs.

Details: 18th & 20th March | A Secret Location | £30+

Vault Festival

Over the past decade VAULT Festival has built up a name for itself as the south’s answer to Edinburgh, attracting headliner comedians sharing their work in progress and supporting independent, emerging theatremakers – particularly giving a platform to POC, queer and neurodiverse performers. And now after a brief, two-year recess (you get one guess why) it’s back with a vengeance, with over 500 shows variously designed to make you laugh, cry, and join an orchestra conducted by Donald Trump…

Details: Until 19th March | The Vaults, Leake Street, SE1 7NN-

Inside Beethoven at the Printworks

Dun-dun duh-duh.

Dun-dun DUH-DUH.

That’s Beethoven’s 5th symphony as played by three letters of the alphabet. Now imagine it played by an extraordinary British chamber orchestra inside an iconically huge clubbing venue, scattered throughout the vast space so that you’re able to wander freely though the different sections of the musicians, guided by light and sound installations, as if you’re walking through the anatomy of the composition itself.

Details: 23rd March | Printworks, Surrey Quays Rd, SE16 7PJ | £29

Wes Anderson Movie Marathon

A five-film, all-night Wes Anderson movie marathon seems like the kind of thing that would be quite commonplace & normal in the universe of Wes Anderson’s movies. Sadly in our own super-lame, non-symmetrical, real universe they only happen once in a blue moon. And this month is that blue moon. Head to the Prince Charles, and you’ll get to see a quintet of cultish crowd-pleasers, shortly before staggering out to see the sun rising at 7am…

Details: 25th March | 7 Leicester Pl, WC2H 7BY | £22.50

London Original Print Fair

Looking for some fresh prints? Then head to Somerset House at the end of the month and check out the London original print Fair. If you can believe it, it’s the longest running art fair in London, now celebrating its 38th edition. You’ll get to see (and possibly buy, if you’re feeling flush) prints by everyone from Rembrandt & Picasso to David Hockney & Grayson Perry.

Details: 30th March – 2nd April | Somerset House, The Strand, WC2R 1LA | £18

The BBC Earth Experience

BBC Earth Experience

If you head to Earl’s Court this month, you’ll get to witness the sheer majesty of one of our planet’s most precious resources: David Attenborough.

He’ll be providing his velvety, highly informed, and hypnotically engaging voice to the upcoming BBC Earth Experience, which sounds like an extremely ambitious affair to say the least: it’s all going to be housed in a new, massive, purpose-built venue in West London into which they’re stuffing some vast, 360-degree, multi-angle digital screens for you to submerge yourself into the natural world…

Details: 30th March – 31st July | The Daikin Centre, Earl’s Court, Empress Place, SW6 1TW | £28.50

Beyond the streets

Beyond The Streets

The writing has been on the wall for some time now.

Graffiti is an art-form.

And it’s an art form that’s long been eschewed by the art gallery crowd, mostly because art galleries tend to be indoors. But now, the most creative form of vandalism has its very own indoor art show, thanks to BEYOND THE STREETS, which is by far the most comprehensive street art exhibition to ever open in the UK…

Details: Until May 9th | Saatchi Gallery, Duke of York’s HQ, SW3 4RY | £15

David Hockey At The Lightroom

David Hockney at the Lightroom

Hot tip! Invest in neck braces. Because people are craning their heads up at frankly unnatural angles in order to take in the entirety of David Hockney’s new, illuminated, four storey tall exhibition. Call it immersive if it makes you happy, but the fact is that this thing is gigantic, and will utterly envelope people in vibrantly hued artworks…

Details: Until 4th June | The Lightroom, 12 Lewis Cubitt Square, N1C 4DY | £25

Check out an Exhibition

The Spanish World

Attributed to Manuel Chili, called Caspicara, The Four Fates of Man: Death, Soul in Hell, Soul in Purgatory, Soul in Heaven, c. 1775.

One of the great advantages of living in London is that you have access to more culture than a librarian face-planting into a petri dish – in fact, over the next month alone, you can step out of your front door, and within mere minutes find yourself immersed in a vast showcase of cutting-edge digital art in a cavernously large gallery space; get a glimpse into London’s grizzly history of public executions; explore some room-sized woollen (yes woollen) sculptures made behind The Iron Curtain; take an interactive deep-dive into the ASMR phenomenon; check out some astonishing African haute couture; and see a 40ft cube of moving art… See the best exhibitions on in London

Go To The Theatre


You may laugh. You may cry. You may throw up, or potentially do all three. This month at the theatre, you can catch medieval comedy, billion-dollar empires made & lost, and immersive gangsterism…  See The Best Shows On At The Theatre Now




Ha’s Đặc Biệt ất Oranj

“When they eventually open their own restaurant, I can only imagine that they’ll help redefine the form, for the better.”

That’s what the New Yorker said about Ha’s Đặc Biệt, a Vietnamese street cart that roved from neighbourhood to neighbourhood delivering their “thrillingly ambitious dishes” to hungry New Yorkers. Well, now they’re skipping across the Pond, and taking up the reins at Oranj for the month. Expect greatness.

Details: Throughout March | Oranj, 14 Bacon Street, E1 6LF

Cue Point at God’s Garden

No, Cue Point has nothing to do with pool. They’re an Afghan/British fusion BBQ joint, and they’re popping up in God’s Garden to deliver racks of oak smoked lamb ribs with Afghan chutney & soured yoghurt; chicken ‘nacos’ (that’s naan tacos); and deep-fried root veg burgers. And their Sunday Roast menu looks ridiculous.

Details: Until 20th March | God’s Garden, 1 Marylebone Rd, London NW1 4AQ

King at Carousel

King is the kind of restaurant that most chefs dream about opening. It’s on a corner of a quiet Manhattan street, serving up a daily changing menu of hyper-seasonal French & Italian dishes to a loyal foodie crowd, and it rakes in acclaim like it was going out of fashion. And now, it’s coming to Carousel for a five-day stint to show us all what makes it one of the best restaurants in one of the world’s best restaurant cities…

Details: 7th – 11th March | Carousel, 19-23 Charlotte St., W1T 1RW

Women of Wine at Peckham Cellars

Peckham Cellars are observing International Women’s Day with a 4-course supperclub feast cooked up by chef Olly Santoro (who, we assure you, is a woman – one who’s worked at places like Lupins and Kiln), with a wine list to match completely dominated by female producers.

Details: 8th March | Peckham Cellars, 125 Queens Road, SE15 2ND | £45

7 Colours, 7 Chakras Supperclub

The body has seven main chakras. The rainbow has seven colours. Ipso facto, there’s a colour for every chakra – and this supperclub will celebrate that, with a seven course menu spanning red sriracha peppers with beetroot & rhubarb juice; orange sweet potato soup with mango smoothies; violet lavender pan cotta with nettle & fennel tea… you get the idea.

Details: 8th & 24th March | Millfields Coffee, 145 Chatsworth Road, Clapton, E5 0LA | £35

Ivan Ramen

After having been featured in Netflix’s Chef’s Table, Ivan Ramen has a strong claim to being New York’s hottest ramen joint. And now it’s one of London’s hottest ramen joints too, thanks to a pop up at the Neighbourhood incubator up in Islington. Expect the likes of Triple Chicken Triple Garlic; Cold Sesame Noodles with chilled Szechuan chicken; and soup-less, Nagoya-style Mazemen noodles…

Details: Until 9th March | Neighbourhood, 77 Upper Street, N1 0NU


If you’ve never had Australian-Greek fusion food before – and we’ll take a wild, stab-in-the-dark guess here and say no, you probably haven’t – then get ready to say an Aegean g’day to the latest popup to hit TT Liquor. It’s called esti (the lower case is intentional), and it’s the work of head chef Sal Galasso, who’s spend the last decade working at some of Oz’s finest restaurants. Now, he’ll be cooking up ‘straight-off-the-coals’ pork souvlaki, twice-cooked lamb ribs with Australian ‘desert dust’ spice mix, and smokey aubergine with brown butter & fried peanuts. It’s due to stick around for six months… but that’s just an esti, mate.

Details: 12th March until September | TT Liquor, 17B Kingsland Rd, E2 8AA

Crème Du Carême At The Century Club

Marie-Antoine Carême is a man who needs no introduction…

…to anyone who’s recently been to 19th century Paris.

For everyone else, here it is: Carême, born in 1784, is widely considered to be the world’s first ‘celebrity chef’. And for one night only this month you’ll be able to eat some of his most famous dishes on the rooftop of Soho’s bougie private members club, The Century Club…

Details: 18th March | The Century Club, 61-63 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 6LQ | £60

A Pepper Party


Of the two condiments available on every dining table in the Western world – salt & pepper – one of them is literally necessary to live. The other is there because it’s just so damn good, we can’t live without it. This pop up is a celebration of pepper in all its forms. Half a dozen chefs & food writers will gather around, and create a menu of dishes that each celebrate pepper, and push our understanding of it to delicious new places.

Details: 20th March | Spiritland King’s Cross 9 – 10 Stable Street, N1C 4AB | £55


Tommi Tuominen runs two Michelin Starred restaurants in Finland – and for context, there are only four in the entire country – so it must have been tough to pick just one to bring over here for a pop up. In the end, he went with Finnjävel (which produces some colourful results in Google Translate), bringing it to The Halkin hotel in Belgravia for two weeks at the end of the month. Expect dishes like Glassblowers Salmon, Blood Pancakes, and Potato Gruel…

Details: 21st March to 1st April | COMO The Halkin, 5-6 Halkin Street, SW1X 7DJ | £130

Whole Beast at The Fat Walrus

Whole Beast, as the name somewhat suggests, specialise in nose-to-tail cooking. That means an ever-changing menu of extremely fresh, and frequently inventive dishes, which they’ll be serving up to punters at The Fat Walrus for the foreseeable. Expect the likes of green chorizo tacos, pork chops with apple ketchup, burnt hispi with pork fat, and more…

Details: Throughout March | The Fat Walrus, 44 Lewisham Way, SE14 6NP


Poon’s Wontoneria At Carousel

Poon’s has been on a wild ride since opening its first restaurant in Covent Garden back in ’73, winning a Michelin Star, opening half a dozen branches, gaining celebrity superfans, shutting down, being resurrected, and surviving lockdown thanks to a wonton delivery service. Well, now they’re launching a series of ever-more permanent supperclubs and popups, the latest of which is a stint at Carousel’s incubator space…

Details: Until 7th May | No.23 at Carousel, 23 Charlotte St, W1T 1RL

Only Food and Courses

Only Food and Courses is a pop up food concept that takes culinary trends from the ’80s and ’90s and reworks them for the more modern era. Sometimes the menu changes, and sometimes the venue changes, but like Trigger’s Broom, it remains the exact same outfit. And now the venue has changed once more, moving into a long term residency at The Cheshire Cheese pub.

Details: Throughout March | The Cheshire Cheese, 5 Little Essex Street, WC2R 3LD | 6 courses, £75

All My Friends

All My Friends

“Alexa, play All My Friends by LCD Soundsystem…”

…because that’s the song that this pop up is named after, and frankly listening to it gives you a pretty decent sense of the place’s vibes too. It’s got a strong musical element with DJs & a record store, and the food’s being put together by both Japanese street food outfit Sho Foo Doh (who’re slinging tuna tacos, sesame-panko-crusted cauliflower, and banana spring rolls with miso caramel) and True Craft, a sourdough pizza spot from Seven Sisters.

Details: Throughout March | Unit 1, Hamlet Estate, 96 White Post Ln, E9 5EN


Argentinian chef Fernando Trocca knocked it out the park when he opened Sucre last year, and now he’s hoping to score another homer with his pop up Mostrador. And the fact that he’s already opened Mostrador pop ups in the US & Uruguay, and already scored such, er home runs… you know what, the analogy breaks down here, but the fact is that it’s a very successful concept. It’s go excellent salads, phenomenal pastries (courtesy of seven pastry chefs), and delicious light suppers. It’ll be at the Hart Shoreditch hotel for the next few months.

Details: Throughout March | 61-67 Great Eastern Street, EC2A 3HU

Little Bao Boy

little bao boy

Despite only launching in 2016, Little Bao Boy already has half a dozen locations across the UK making it a not quite so little – and it’s gotten larger still, thanks to a long term residency at the Sun & 13 Cantons in Soho. Expect a concise menu of half a dozen bao (beef brisket, chilli salt tofu, Korean fried chicken, etc) plus pulled pork fried, veg gyozas, and – prepare yourself – deep fried sweet bao covered in cinnamon sugar, berry compote, and condensed milk.

Details: Throughout March Sun & 13 Cantons, 21 Great Pulteney Street, London, W1F 9NG

Mondo Sandwiches at The White Horse

mondo sandwiches

Just when we were thinking that Peckham needed more sandwich shops, the absolute king sarnie slingers Mondo Sandwiches announced that they were popping up at The White Horse in Peckham. Not just that, but head chef Jack Macrae has knocked up some shiny newbies for the occasion. We’re talking char-grilled chicken tikka thigh and a punchy Thai vegan number, not to mention the most intense rosy rare beef sandwich we’ve ever seen, served with its own gravy dipping sauce. And it’s not just ’wiches you’ll find either…. Also on the menu are their legendary smash-patty burgers and one hell of a Sunday roast.

Details: Available daily | The White Horse, 20-22 Peckham Rye, London, SE15 4JR



Bar Night at the Novelty Automation

The Novelty Automation has some truly weird arcades. There’s a Money Laundering cash drop, an ‘Auto Frisker’ that will pat you down like a mechanical bouncer, and a ‘Small Hadron Collider’ among many others. It’s like satire meets surrealism meets stainless steel. And for one night a week, there’s a pop up bar there too.

Details: 2nd March | 1a Princeton St, Holborn, WC1R 4AX | 5pm-9pm


Oriole is back. The globe-hopping cocktail bar, whose excellent menu jumped from continent to continent, sadly had to close due to the redevelopment of the Smithfield Market area. Well, now it’s doing a little hopping of its own, landing temporarily in the Hoxton Hotel down in Southwark until it can find a new permanent home. Expect their usual blend of live music, delicious cocktails, and exotic bric-a-brac from across the planet…

Details: 16th March – 1st July | Albie, 40 Blackfriars Rd, SE1 8NY

Midnight Apothecary St Patrick’s Special

Okay, bear with us for a moment.

According to legend, St. Patrick used the shamrock (aka the three leafed clover) to teach people about the Holy Trinity. The earliest written version of that story was in 1726, by Caleb Threlkeld – who was a botanist. The Midnight Apothecary is famous for its botanical cocktails. Cocktails are often served with ice cubes, which in bar-speak are referred to as ‘rocks’ …making them sham rocks.

Now we’ve either blown this shit wide open …or we’ve just found a convoluted coincidence that explains why The Midnight Apothecary is a decent place to celebrate St Pats.

We can’t be sure which.

Details: 17th March | Brunel Museum Rooftop Garden, Railway Avenue, SE16 4LF | £8-£20

St Pats at Big Penny Social

Big Penny Social is not just a name. Okay it is a name, but she is indeed big, she is social, and she is indeed, er, penny. In fact, she’s the biggest beer hall in the entire nation, which is very social in-and-of itself. It’s also a damn fine place to hold a St. Pat’s shindig because it means you can fit in an Irish band, some Maggie O’Shea dance academy lessons, a rousing bout of ceilidh, a couple of DJs, and a whole lot of whiskey cocktails.

Details: 17th March | 1 Priestley Way, E17 6AL | £5

It’s Always Sunny On St Paddy’s Day

For one night only The Windmill in Brixton will be turning into Paddy’s Irish Pub from It’s Always Sunny, only better. Because this one will have a whole bunch of live acts, and everyone will be doing Charlie-esque things. If you’re a fan of the show, you won’t want to miss it. You know, because of the implication.

Details: 17th March | 22 Blenheim Gardens, SW2 5BZ

Rhythm and Booze

Rhythm & Booze Burns Night 2019

Presenting the three most beautiful words in the English language: I love you open whisky bar. The Rhythm And Booze Project will be hosting a night of live music mixed with a kind of guided tasting from a totally open whisky bar, which promises to be something of a unique show.

Details: 29th March | Crol & Co, 66 A Newcomen St, SE1 1YT | £65

The House of Suntory at The Ham Yard Hotel

First, the good news: for the next couple of months, the rooftop at The Ham Yard Hotel is going to be home to a pop up cocktail bar celebrating Japanese spirits, which is open to all (not just hotel guests). Now the other good news: it’s heated, and has blankets.

There is no bad news.

Details: Until 6th April | Ham Yard Hotel, 1 Ham Yard, London W1D 7DT | Book here

Amie Wine Studio

Eccleston Yards is a lovely place at any time of year, even in the colder months, when rosé wine pop ups don’t seem like the first port of call. We only mention it because it happens to be home to the first ever pop up from Aime Wine Studio, who’ve gone all-out on their debut with something that’s part bar, part wine shop, and part gallery…

Details: Throughout March | Eccleston Yards, SW1W

God’s Garden

God’s Garden is quite a punchy name for any place located outside of Eden, but this particular pop up paradise is set in the grounds of One Marylebone, one of the most strikingly impressive and grandiose churches in the city. Add to that the large stretch tents to shelter you from the elements, the opulent Persian rugs, the live music, the wine trolleys and the food… and they’re well on their way to earning that name.

Details: Open Wed-Sun throughout March | 1 Marylebone Road, Marylebone, NW1 4AQ

Queen of The Slopes

queen of hoxton

Reasserting her regal supremacy over the East London rooftop bar scene, the Queen of Hoxton has crowned itself with an all-new theme. Expect an Alpine-style ski chalet with roaring fire pits, moreish bratwursts, and hot cocktails served up by Apres-Ski Guides.

Details: Throughout March | 1 Curtain Road Hoxton, EC2A 3JX


So far, Dalston café Snackbar has been great on the snacks, and a little lighter on the bar. But that’s changed now that Adam Caddy (ex-Quo Vadis and Brasserie Zedel) has taken over on Thursday-Saturday evenings with his pop-up bar, Adam’s. Created in response to the loss of LGBTQ+ spaces in the city, it’s an inclusive bar serving up classic cocktails, Two Tribes brews and a short-but-sweet wine list across the minimalist café spaces and the leafy, fairy-lit garden.

Details: Thursday – Saturday evenings throughout March Snackbar, 20 Dalston Lane, E8 3AZ
