From boozy shakes to Bloody Marys, here are the hottest pop-ups to try this summer. Catch them while you can.

Where? Fitzroy House, Dalston 
When? Until the end of September 
One of Dalston’s best-kept foodie secrets, this rooftop pop-up offers organic, locally-sourced classics with a French twist, from Provence-born head chef Marie Gonfond. 

Where? The Tower Hotel, London
When? Until 1 October 
This is the perfect place to enjoy a lazy afternoon in the sunshine, with some breathtaking views over London. There’s a Pimms truck and street food vans serving British classics, with cocktails and ice-cold draught beers on tap.

Where? Secret venue, Manchester
When? Every weekend until the end of August
A weekly weekend block party, curated by the city’s leading club nights, which combines food from the best venues and street food heroes with craft beers, ciders, fresh cocktails and a stellar DJ line-up. 

Where? Anise, London 
When? Until 31 August 
Cinnamon Kitchen’s destination bar, Anise, is hosting a pop-up ice cream parlour on its terrace in East London. You’ll find boozy milkshakes, frozen cocktails and desserts with a modern Indian vibe.
Where? Selfridges, London 
When? Until 27 September
Camden’s acclaimed Q Grill has taken over Selfridges’ rooftop for the summer, with an all-day BBQ menu. You’ll completely forget that you’re sitting above the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street in this sun-drenched, astro-turfed oasis. 

Where? Le Pont de la Tour, London 
When? Until the end of August
Beach time in London? Yes, please. Le Pont de la Tour has transformed its Thames-side terrace into a 1920s Riviera-inspired haven, with fresh fruit cocktails, a beach-bar menu (think crevette buckets aplenty) and heaps of seafood. 
Where? Southbank, London 
When? Until the end of August
Continuing the seafood theme, The Bloody Oyster is pitching up at the Southbank’s Festival of Love this summer in its newly converted double decker bus. Head down there for one of its signature Bloody Marys, and some delicious oysters with a twist (we’re talking smoked, with parmesan and prosciutto). 

Where? The Signet Library, Edinburgh
When? 1-25 August
Back for a fourth year, this pop-up has become the place to take a break during the Edinburgh Festival. Try the renowned Pommery burger or the whole roast lobster, washed down with a glass of chilled champagne.
