The Best Pop-Ups in the World Right Now

To celebrate the opening of our pop-up shops in Sydney and Melbourne, we’ve hunted down the coolest pop-up experiences happening around the world right now. At the moment that means visiting London, Amsterdam and New York for disco haircuts, underground screenings, one-of-a-kind shopping trips and solitary dining experiences like never before.


Een Maal

Een Maal is the first one-person restaurant in the world and describes itself as an ‘attractive place for temporary disconnection’.  The host of one-person tables are decorated simply with fresh flowers and will be popping up in the Lensvelt furniture and design studio with help from the artists at Studio Job in Belgium.

28 – 30 November


The Rhythnm Parlour

London barber/DJ Ryan McGregor’s pop-up experience sees him bring his shaving, coiffing and styling skills to his favourite bars and record stores.  Clients can book in for a trim to the dulcet tones of the resident DJ in venues like Rye Wax Records in Peckham and even Milk in Reading.


Rooftop Film Club

The Rooftop Film Club is taking up residence amongst the ancient brickwork and railway arches of The Vaults underneath Waterloo station this winter. Screening all the classics (Ferris Bueller, Pulp Fiction, Breakfast at Tiffany’s) and a few extras as well (The Grand Budapest Hotel), it’s the first subterranean pop-up of its kind.

6 November – 20 December 
The Vaults, Launcelot Street (Entrance via Launcelot Street, off Lower Marsh). SE11 7AD

New York

The Vintage Twin Pop-Up 

Twin sisters Morgan and Samantha Elias founded their company when they were 19 years old, selling one-of-a-kind pieces of vintage clothing exclusively.  They now have an online store (still selling only one-off pieces) and are hosting a pop-up shop in Nolita until early November.

 28 October – 3 November
355A Bowery, Nolita, New York

Marlow Goods at The Wythe

Restaurateur Andrew Tarlow’s passion for local steak runs pretty deep.  After launching a series of successful restaurants in NYC (Marlow & Sons, Diner, Roman’s, Achilles Heel, and Reynard) and establishing relationships with a number of cattle farmers upstate, Andrew and his wife Kate Tuling turned their hand to the other part of the cow: leather.  Their pop-up in the Wythe hotel in Williamsburg features leather bags and accessories and Icealandic lamb wool rugs made from the same cows and lamb that grace the pages of their restaurants’ menus.   

5 September – 31 December
80 Wythe Ave at N 11th St, Williamsburg, New York
