A look back at June 2019 – Community fun

This article is a look back at the amazing experiences which various community members of Love Pop Ups London enjoyed and helped spread the word about during June 2019 on complimentary basis.

June 2019 a look back

Aperol Spritz

Do you love Aperol Spritz then you will be disappointed to hear that they held a pop up within June which just lasted a few days to celebrate 100 years in Shoreditch’s Electric Light Station.

There was a pool, hot tugs, a flowing orange waterfall and even a giant Aperol Spritz glass shaped ball pit!  On top of all that there was even the UK’s first ever revolving Aperol carousel bar. So much fun but keep your eyes and ears peeled as it will be returning for another run next years.

Aperol Spritz hot tub

“Sat underneath the waterfall we enjoyed the cool mist while watching everyone enjoying themselves in the pool. Not satisfied with just this, we went over to cars decked out as hot tubs, grabbed our orange towels and took a dip. Not skipping a beat, we picked up another Aperol Spritz at the floating bar and responsibly enjoyed our drinks in the hot tub.”

I and another member of Love Pop ups London we had the pleasure in attending this pop up and sipped our way through plenty of Aperol Spritz whilst chilling in the hot tug. Click here to read all our write ups.

Scripts for Supper

If love love stories and immersive theatre then you’ll love Scripts for Supper latest production Wind in the Willows. We were taken on a story telling adventure with Mole, Ratty, Toad and Badger on a farm within London as we indulged on a supper fit for any Toad of Toad Hall whilst laughing along to the antics of Toad and his friends.

Food and theatre collide in Scripts for Supper, where the actors double up as waiters and the food brings you into the world of the play.

Scripts for Supper Wind in the Willows table setting

“Five actors leapt into their roles as Toad, Mole, Rat, Badger and ‘Narrator/Musician with aplomb, mysticism, adventure, morality, and camaraderie, key themes that ran throughout the play’s narrative, its evocation of the nature of the Thames Valley arguably celebratory, given its unconventional surroundings.”

I and another member of Love Pop ups London we had the pleasure in taking a journey with Toad and his mates whilst dining on a supper fit for any Toad of Toad Hall. Click here to read all our write ups.

Makan Malaysian Supper

Ever wanted to taste what Malaysian food might be like. Then Makan Malaysian does just that. They love putting on supperclubs as their mission is to share a little bit of the food and culture from Malaysia.​

“The ingredients are feverishly sourced by Su from local Malaysian and Indian stores in Reading, who also supply to local Asian restaurants and takeaways. Most of the time, the food is cooked in Su’s certified home kitchen and brought to different venues for final touches.”

Kanishka

If you love Indian cuisine and love Michelin Starred Chefs then you will love Atul Kocchar Kanishka which is situated in the heart of Mayfair. The food is focused on the unexplored cuisine from the so called ‘Sister States’ of India in the North East which are Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura.

Atul Kochhar is an Indian-born, British based chef, restaurateur, and television personality. His unique talent has changed the way people perceive and experience Indian cuisine. Atul is also the first Indian chef to receive a Michelin Star, which was awarded in 2001 whilst he was at Tamarind.

Kanishka

“For my mains I had the Seafood Alleppey Curry which consisted of pan seared seafood, coconut and turmeric sauce. The turmeric gave that hint of spiciness but all components of this dish worked beautifully together. The seafood was all cooked to perfection with the squid being firm but not too chewy, the razor clam was full of flavour, the fish succulent, and the prawn sweet and meaty. A curry and seafood lovers dream. ”

Colab Spy City Bianca and me

“Rght from the start, we were fully immersed in the action, as a nurse started to take us through a few aptitude tests before we become fully fledged operatives. Within minutes, the action got more dramatic with conflicting information, suspicious behaviour, betrayal, and counter-agents thrown into the mix.”
