Top of the Pops: September Week Four
18 sept. 2015
The Bayou Banquet
A taste of Louisiana is coming to The Vaults in Waterloo for a series of supper clubs which are already selling out fast. Here, you can experience art exhibitions and cabaret to compliment the delicious soul food menu. Sample the Soulful Shrimp Salad followed by one of their three popular American style pies including Mississippi Mud Pie and Bourbon Pecan Pie. After you’ve tasted the delights of New Orleans, wash it down with a Bayou Bloody Mary and prepare to get down and shake to live blues, soul and funk music.
Location: The Vaults, Leake Street, Waterloo, SE1 7NN
Opening Dates : 16th- 27th September
Opening Times: 7:45pm onwards
Hush, the relaxed, lifestyle womenswear brand, is creating an experiential catalogue concept in which you can touch, see and try on their clothing range which ordinarily can only be found online. The shop will not be keeping stock on the premises so once you’ve selected an item, they’ll mail it over to you- which saves you lugging around shopping bags all day! Aimed at women who want to look good but aren’t a slave to fashion, this ‘pop-in’ will be a ‘physical manifestation of all things Hush.’
Location: 273 Fulham Road, SW10 9P2
Opening Dates: 18th- 27th September
Opening Times: Monday- Saturday 10-7/ Sunday 11-5
If you are a chocoholic and looking to sample something special then head over to Bad Brownie’s pop-up in Old Street Underground Station this September. Chocolate devotees and Bad Brownie founders, Paz and Morag set up their brand back in 2013 after spending hours baking and experimenting in a little flat in Richmond. Crowds fell for their sweet treats instantly, encouraging them to expand all over London. Try our favourite flavours, peanut butter, triple chocolate or their award winning salted caramel.
Location: Old Street Underground, Shoreditch, EC1Y 1BE
Opening Dates: 14th-16th September
Opening Times: 9am-6pm

Jimmy Garcia continues his dominance of the pop-up dining world with his newest venture at the Winemakers Vaults in Farringdon. For one night only, guests will be treated to a 6 course dinner in style in the brick-lined cavern hidden beneath Holborn Viaduct. With a menu brimming with fresh, local produce and experimental flavours, it will all be worth the £63 you have to pay for a ticket. Credence DJs will be providing the soundtrack for the evening and will also be heading up the after party.
