Oh weekend, with foodie festivals, sun-soaked terraces and Veuve Clicquot cocktails, you're really spoiling us
POP-UP: Tropicana Botanica curated by Charlotte Olympia
Veuve Clicquot. Charlotte Olympia. Daphne's restaurant, Chelsea. Three very good - if previously unrelated - things. Until now. Because until 24 June, you can sip specialty VC cocktails (think Veuve Clicquot Rich with amaretto, lime, apple and passionfruit) at a gorgeous pop-up bar with floral installations designed by shoe maestro Olympia (here killer heels really do grow on trees), at the style set's favourite local eatery. Welcome to bar Tropicana Botanica. We may never leave.
Until 24 June

ART: The New Tate Modern
This is big: the new, revamped Tate Modern is here. Big in that its stunning, twisty shaped Switch House extension offers 10 storeys of extra space, expanding the gallery's size by 60 per cent. Big in that it houses all-new displays featuring 300 major modern artists from around the world (Mark Rothko, Ai Weiwei, Agnes Martin…) plus a swish 150-cover restaurant and 100-seater bar. And your need to go? Well, that will be HUGE.
