I have a new favourite thing in London: pop-up bars!
They are basically bars, set up temporarily in strategic locations, generally during summer I suppose.
Look mum no hands in itself is a unique coffee-bar. Their permanent outlets can be found in Old Street and Mare Street in London, and it is designed for cyclists. They show films and cycle sports on their big projector screen, and they hold workshops and have mechanics to fix bikes.
The pop-up bar can be found in Southbank, right under Hungerford Bridge. I remember I was walking by the River Thames, weaving through the tourists while ‘My Heart Will Go On’ was being played by the street musician.
And then right there, just opposite the musician, tucked in a corner under Hungerford Bridge was Look Mum No Hands pop-up bar.
It was so pretty that we had to come back again the following week to check it out. I’m no expert in beer no am I the biggest fan of it. However, the craft beer served there was easy to down and certainly one of the better ones I have had.
What made the place even more awesome was that it was pretty busy on a Thursday night but not TOO much that you could not get seats or anything. In fact, the 6 of us were lucky to get a corner long table and enjoy our drinks while chatting away. And when the lights lit up at night, the whole place looked even prettier.
