WIGWAMBAM! - East London

This heated rooftop wigwam at the Queen of Hoxton (above) is a regular winter pop-up offering a cosy setting for some outdoor BBQ action.

Fairylights and a fire pit will warm your cockles as you order up a feast of red meat, from whole lamb, hog roast and haunches of venison to wild boar sausages and burgers, all served with gravy and stuffing.

Even better, you can wash it all down with a toasty tipple, namely their hot buttered rum. What are you waiting for? Get freaky in the tipi.

£5+ Mon-Sat, 5pm-10pm, 
Until March 31 
1-5 Curtain Road, EC2A 3JX 
Tube | Liverpool Street

The Artist Dining Room - Bethnal Green

This rather high- brow dining club invites you to “engage with the ideas of a well-known artist through food”.

The menu is designed bearing the “fundamental, social and intellectual content of the artist’s work” in mind, and the three-course meal is accompanied by a talk about the artist’s work. Er, eek. 

£30, Next dinner April 4, 
7pm 1 Andrews Road, E8 4QL

Mile High

These immersive dining events promise to whisk you away on a ‘city break’, welcoming you first to a ‘departure lounge’ with cocktails and canapes, before you’re taken to a themed dining room and a four-course meal.

The first ‘break’ is Gothenburg, serving Scandinavian delights (think char-grilled elk) in a Swedish-inspired setting.  

£65, March 13-16 & 20-23,
7pm Secret location TBC

Spit and Roast

Portside Parlour - East London

Last but not least, we’ve selected a pop-up that, while it doesn’t include food, is simply too cool to exclude. Patrons enter this temporary rum club via, um, a toilet (above).

Pull the dunny chain and a super-sexy speakeasy will be revealed, with red leather sofas, candlelight, oil lamps and an inevitably achingly trendy clientele all crammed in.

Angostura rum is the drink of choice (well, it’s not really a choice, cos it’s the only drink available). Slated to stay until May.  

Mon-Fri, 5pm til late;
Sat-Sun, 4pm til late 63-65
Broadway Market, E8 4PH 
Tube | Haggerston
