Eat, drink, rave, repeat. Here's where to do it, says Charlotte CoxMore
Pop-up is an overused term. Bars, shops, cinemas – er, story books – everything is at it. So how do you set your temporary foodie residency apart? The clever gastro folk at Cuisson have cracked it: you go in the opposite direction. You pop DOWN. To Borough Market, in fact, where the team of Michelin-level chefs are hosting five-course supper clubs featuring experimental Japanese plates and 'multi-sensory video menus'. There's also an Ikigai bar, gourmet snacks (oysters tempura, please), and an immersive experience where a Google glass headset transforms the flavour of beer. Intrigued? You know which direction to head...
Until 23 Dec
Pop-Down to the Vaults, 1 Cathedral Street, London, SE1 9DE
Shuffleboard. You'll either a) have never heard of it, b) have only ever heard of it in reference to pensioners playing it on cruise ships, or c) be fully aware that it was invented in the 1500s, was beloved by Henry VIII and had to be outlawed in 1542 for being too addictive. Ahem. However, soon enough all of London will know all about it, as it's the latest unlikely sport being given a hipster makeover thanks to The London Shuffle Club. Taking over the the top floor of the Old Truman Brewery, here you can experience the thrill of, well, pushing a puck down a long board with a stick. Which is actually more thrilling than it sounds. Plus there's tropical vibes, retro Americana food, craft beer – and Prosecco aplenty, of course.
13 Oct-30 Dec; £40 for a one-hour slot (irrespective of number of players)
London Shuffle Club, Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane, E1 6QL
