Nantucket Beach Club

SkyLounge, the outdoor roof terrace that sits atop the DoubleTree Hilton, Tower Hill has teamed up with Snow Queen Vodka and Lanson Champagne on the launch of its very own island-inspired pop-up, aptly named Nantucket Beach Club. Set to open its doors to the public on 1 May and remain open until 30 September, the pop-up takes its inspiration from Nantucket, New England and features a lighthouse, swing-bench and bowling alley. The venue will serve up summer-themed cocktails including vodka slushies, meanwhile on the food front guests can expect to find seafood dishes such as a Lobster mac and cheese, Seafood Survival Bucket and clam chowder and lobster rolls. The space includes a VIP gazebo area, which is available for private hire.

The Paperworks

The Paperworks pop-up space in North London features bar booths and large outdoor areas that are great for soaking up the summer sun. Guests can expect street food by Create Food & Design, as well as great cocktails and music. The open-air venue, which is the work of Corsica Studios, can accommodate large-scale events right through to small intimate gatherings and everything in between. The Paperworks is situated in close proximity to Borough and London Bridge, making it a convenient destination in which to hold an event.
