A look back at May 2018 – 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 May 2018.

May 2018 a look back

Escape London: Seven Seas

Escape London escape room Seven Seas is in Shadwell, London.   If you love escape rooms and pirates then this room is certainly a must for any fan. Some community members from Love Pop Ups London had the opportunity to play the game. Upon entering we was all locked up in cells and it was our mission to escape the jail cells and rob the pirates ship of it’s stashed treasure.

Question is though do you think you have what it takes to beat the escape and steal the pirates treasure?

Escape London: Escape the Seven Seas

“Having to escape a cell was a new experience for me and it definitely set the scene well. All in all, we had to break into the Captain’s quarters and steal the pirate booty for ourselves. With a 49% success rate this is one of the more difficult games in Escape London’s repertoire. I certainly thought it was challenging at times. ”

Escape London: Taken

Escape London escape room Taken is in Shadwell, London.   If you love thrillers which involves kidnapping such as movies like Taken then you will love this escape room which we had to save Bob from the insane serial killer who has kidnapped him.  Some community members from Love Pop Ups London had the opportunity to help save Bob.  We managed to save him from the clutches of the serial killer within time. As you can see he was very happy to see us ladies.

Escape London: Taken

“I really enjoyed this escape room, I thought there was plenty of puzzles to solve and it was challenging enough to keep you guessing. I also liked the story element and all the props which really made it seem realistic. The music also added to the suspense and had you on edge, adding to the tension to quickly solve the puzzles.”

British Movie Tours

British Movie Tours is the premier provider of Film and TV location sightseeing tours in London and the UK.  They operate bus, walking and small vehicle tours in various locations throughout the UK.  Some community members of Love Pop Ups London had the opportunity to experience their Harry Potter walking tour which they got to discover various buildings which were used in the movies in someway.  Do you know all the locations in London used?

British movie tour by Mei Suen

“We went to the location where the Ministry of Magic was filmed, and heard how props were made or put there to make the scenes, and they were not done by CGI.  So if you were expecting to see a Gentlemen’s toilet entrance near the Ministry building, you would not find it there as the sign was put there for the scene, to make it look like there was one, which is cheaper than to build an actual toilet. ”

Bite Me Burger

Bite Me Burger has returned to London with a new permanent restaurant in Chalk Farm near Camden Market serving their classic mini burger sliders.  There is so much choice from the Classic American Bite to an Hawaiian Burger.  You can even select a mini hotdog if you did not want a duo, trio or even a dozen burgers.

I had the opportunity to sample some of their burgers in their new location.

Bite Me Burger me

“I loved both burgers as both were juicy, full of flavour, meaty and very filling. What really surprised me though was the Hawaiian burgers I never would of thought that pineapple would work with minced meat but surprisingly it did, now I am yearning to try adding pineapple to my homemade burgers. ”

The London Bridge Experience

If you love horror and zombies then I highly recommend being a zombie for a day at London Tombs.  You can get made up as a zombie, choose from an array of clothing and then enter the scare maze of London Tombs to scare people.  Is this your idea of a dream or a nightmare?

For me and Steve a community member of Love Pop Ups London it certainly was a dream come true and one we will be reliving it in our dreams for many years.

London Tombs - Joanne and Steve as zombies

“This is like an all access backstage pass into wardrobe and makeup. If you have every had dreams of working in a scare park as I did, this is your dream come true!”

Murder Express us inside

Taste of Italy in Dalston – Rotorino

Rotorino is an Italian restaurant and wine bar that is in Dalston. I was invited along to try out their regional Italian set course meal last Tuesday. I am half Maltese so Italian food is my number one cuisine.

All the pasta dishes are available in small or large size. However as they are an Italian restaurant and Italian’s love sharing they highly encourage sharing plates. Continue reading

Drink goggles on, party shoes on, check – Drake and Morgans: The Listing

I had the privilege of going along to the launch night of Drake and Morgans newest bar & restaurant The Listing which is based in Cannon Street last week on 9th November. This is now Drake and Morgans 19th bar & restaurant.

Drake and Morgans: The Listing

The launch party was being held on the ground floor in the main bar and restaurant area. The party was heaving with people but that did not matter as the two storied building with wrap around windows gave you views from in/out of the restaurant making the whole place seem open leading us not to feel claustrophobic. I went along with my blogger friends Steve and Kim Continue reading

Let’s party like it’s Summer – Tropicana Beach Club

Tropicana Beach Club is the place you definitely want to be if you want to party like it’s Summer. Tonight I went along to a special event via SquareMeal and eventspiration.

Tropicana Beach Club me and bar man

Tropicana heaven

From the moment I walked through the door I felt like I was transported into a Caribbean Island and straight away my mind was taken into party mood. The barman greeted us with his friendly smile and fun personality and gave me a shot which contained not alcohol but pineapple and cranberry juice which made a change and was very refreshing.

Code your cocktail – The Bletchley

I feel privileged and I and others from Love Pop Ups London had to the pleasure to attend a soft launch of Lollipops new bar called The Bletchley.

The Bletchley the wartime cocktail bar

Upon entering the bar I was blown away as I really did feel like I had travelled back into time back to the war with it’s dark lit atmosphere and the noise of air raid sirens going off and everyone dressed in war time uniforms.  Everyone is given a war jacket to wear to make making people feel like your in the war down in a bar basement.

Which Agent name will you be given?

All agents (drinkers) are asked to choose their favourite colour. My favourite colour is pink so I was called ‘Agent Pink’ for the night. Now onto the fun part of ordering my cocktail. Continue reading
