1. Dalston Roof Park Reopens

18 Ashwin St, E8, from Saturday Is Dalston Roof Park the Wimbledon of east London bars? If the only criteria is "does it have a retractable roof in acknowledgment of sh*t British weather?", then the answer is… yes. This is a swanky pre-summer refurb accompanied by a new menu and tiki bar, to minimise queuing and maximise staring rhapsodically at the beauty of the Kingsland Road.

2. Model Market

196 Lewisham High St, SE13, Friday - Sunday It's back for its fourth year, with primo munch from Up In My Grill, Yum Bun and Mama’s Jerk.

3. Margarita Rumble

The Yard, 89 Worship St, EC2, Sunday Who and what makes a god-tier margarita? New York City's Craft Hospitality are curious. Which is why they’ve come to London to organise this: your favourite bars facing off to find who makes the mightiest marg of all.

4. Negroni Nights 2

434 Kingsland Road, E8, Sunday Free entry to Rotorino. Potential for a 1am lasagna. Seven varieties of liver-melting cocktail. Negroni Nights 1 was a banger. No2 promises to be even louder.

5. Chang Sensory Trail

Spitalfields Market, E1, Saturday Did you even realise you were craving a multi-sensorial playground centred on iconic Thai flavours? You didn’t, but Chang Beer have. Curated by Chef Bo, it’s not just an excuse to stuff your mush. It’s also a sensory journey! Which ends with you stuffing your mush! Class!
