So here’s a must-have hot-list of all the best pop-up bars you’re going to want to visit over the next few days. Better hurry though, they’re not here forever!

1. Storeys

Why? A rooftop bar above the former BBC Car Park at Television Centre? Need we say more?

With 360 degree views over west London and 24,000 square feet worth of tasty street food vendors and cocktail makers, Storeys would make one hell of a start to your LCW, that’s for sure.

Where? Multi-storey car park, Television Centre, W12 7RJ

2. The Art of Cachaca

Why?If you fancy a change from the standard cocktail fare of ol’ blighty, then whisk yourself down to this Brazilian gem in Clerkenwell.

They’ll be serving up south american specials as long as you lot keep turning up.

Where? 115 Farringdon Road EC1R 3AF

3. Buffalo Bourbon Empire

Why? Transport yourself back in time to the wild west with a trip down to Shoreditch this week. Learn how to make your favourite coktails or just sit and enjoy the hilarious comedy duo ‘The Thinking Drinkers’. It’s up to you.

Where? 1 Kingsland Road, E2 8AA

4. Chivas Whisky Bar at Ruffians

Why? What’s that? £5 cocktails? We’ll be there.

That should be your instant response to hearing about Chivas Whisky Bar’s super-cheap deals over in Covent Garden. No excuses. Oh, and it’s free entry to all LCW wristband holders!

Where? 27 Maidan Lane, WC2E 7JS

5. The World Class London Cocktail Week Hub

Why? Well you wouldn’t say no that name now would you? Didn’t think so…

A hive of boozy buzz around LCW can be found over at the The World Class London Cocktail Week Hub in Soho. With more luxury brands than you can shake a stirring stick at you’ll definitely be feeling rather classy by quitting time. A must see for the week.
