From theatre in the vaults to rooftop garden cocktails, our pick of the capital's most exciting pop-ups this summer

The arrival of summertime in London is heralded by many things. Sunshine, if we're lucky. Rain, if we're not. The dusting off of any rooftop bar knowledge around 5pm each day. The streets outside pubs jamming up an hour later. Buses transforming overnight from a tolerable form of public transport to unbearable heat cages of sticky animosity. And these days, pop-up bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs.

The number of places in which to make the most of the light evenings and (hopefully) balmy temperatures increases every year, taking over outdoor spaces and disused buildings, stringing their fairy lights and parking their food trucks. And while it's wonderful to have so many options, sorting the wheat from the chaff is sometimes difficult. What's a hidden gem of summer delight and what's a fiver to stand in a car park with a substandard burger?

That's why we've put together our pick of the pop-ups just for you, 15 temporary treats in the capital to while away these long evenings. Drinks, dancing and dinner, food, films and falling down rabbit holes. Go on, you deserve it.
