Ready or not, we're starting to gear up for Christmas (and once 5 November is passed, be prepared for a deluge of Christmas fare). One very popular event that's back is also one of the kitschiest - the Miracle pop-up bar is coming back to the Henrietta Hotel in Covent Garden.
They're popular across the States, but once again, The Henrietta is hosting the only UK pop-up. So you can expect a LOT
Interesting foodie news for anyone near King's Cross. Wonderful foodie store Vallebona has just opened a pop-up shop down at Coal Drops Yard.

For just one month, Hovarda in Soho is bringing Istanbul's best burger to London as Akali Burger take over the lunch menu. In Istanbul, the restaurant started as a fusion diner and a boutique bakery but slowly became known for serving some of the city's finest burgers.

Mortimer House already had a series of impressive takeovers on their fifth floor - and the latest has been announced. This time it's the turn of Zoe Adjonyoh, who will be bringing Zoe's Ghana Kitchen to the fifth floor in Fitzrovia. If you've been to any of her previous residencies or pop-ups, you can expect the same inspired African food at Mortimer House - and here's a taste of what's on
It caused something of a stir when it opened originally in Brick Lane, but the prison-themed Alcotraz must be doing something right - as they've just announced a new three-month pop-up in the West End.
Coming to Covent Garden, this time it's Alcotraz Penitentiary: Cell Block Six Eight. It's a basement speakeasy where you'll have to smuggle your alcohol past a warden and guards to the

Ollie Dabbous is back at Chelsea Barracks (a fancy new housing development), where he popped up last spring, with another pop-up. This time it's a cafe called Hideaway.
This time the pop-up is "inspired by the outdoor world" so expect a rustic look to the cafe and plenty of foliage.
If you missed the last time MasterChef finalist Dr Nawamin Pinpathomrat popped up in London with Crab Anatomy - then another chance is on the way. The crab-centric pop-up is back for another month, this time coming to Fitzrovia.
They're taking over the space that used to be Suda and yes, there will be an awful lot of Cornish crab on the menu. Here's what you can expect:
