Real food lovers know that food is not just and simply fuel for our human needs. While the taste and the way it looks, might be vital components of the food, here at VOL food we appreciate the experience too. So if you want to have more than just a dinner this weekend, we offer you a list of the best pop up venues.

- TickTack Club- Southwark, SE1
An immersive experience, which as the name of the club suggests, turns the clock backwards and takes you to the 1920’s when “posh” dining was “a thing” and gambling was “a must”.
Located in Southwark, this place offers its visitors the amazing opportunity to experience the two cultures of “Upstairs” and “Downstairs” with good food, warming drinks and exciting evening of entertainment, inspired from the 1920’s.
The introductory price of £35 for the weekend, includes a 4-course set dinner and nice cocktails to cheer you up.
And there is just one house rule: “dress to impress”. As you are attending a “time travelling event” and you are part of the experience, make sure your look is inspired from the 1920s.
