Londoners always make the most of the brief spell of sunshine afforded to them: cycling instead of taking the tube; walking instead of hopping on the bus; wearing shorts to work; invading any green space for a picnic; and drinking exclusively in beer gardens.

The last two activities have been combined by recent popup – Roofnic – which offers a rooftop picnic retreat from the hordes on Oxford Street.

Like most popups, you won’t find convention here. There is a secret entrance at the far end of Oxford Street where guests will be led up a staircase to the venue.

Founder Ashley Dawes had a budget of £27,000 for the popup; and soon found that decorating the venue had to be driven by cutting costs and finding the best deals from around Europe.
