Welcome to our brand new series! The first instalment is right here, our tips on unique and unusual events/bars/pubs/places in general – 5 Places to meet your Tastebuds this week, 12 August 2013:

1. Camden Beach

2 weeks to go before this tropical oasis on our very doorstep disappears for another year – the brainchild of the creatives at the Roundhouse, the beach on the venue’s terrace features deck chairs, beach huts, arcade games an ice-cream van and more.

If you’re after music, check out the indie acoustic night on 16th August featuring Vanessa Gimenez, Sophie Blackburn and Ellekaye.

2. Tamesis Dock

A floating pub – in a converted 1930s Dutch barge. Live music, food, and (hopefully) sunshine permanently moored on London’s Albert Embankment.

3. Dalston Roofpark – Movies In Bed

Panoramic views of London, and a mix of dramas and music documentaries accompanied by Massive mattresses, giant coffee pillow sacks & popcorn. And the (second) twist? Film revealed on the night. Plus, it’s FREE.
