Things to Do This Weekend
Every week we’ll be giving Joes the best things to do this weekend no matter where you are in the country. Whether it’s the best new bars, clubs, restaurants, films or events, we’ve got you covered!
Things to Do This Weekend in London
The Magic Roundabout
Mondays to Tuesdays until 11pm. Prices vary.
Old Street’s famous roundabout opens its doors to its final summer pop-up this week before being completely pedestrianised next year. Located literally in the middle of Old Street Roundabout and accessed via a secret staircase in the tube station, The Magic Roundabout is set to be London’s most unique and newest party space this summer, with award winning street food, artisan coffee, beautiful cocktails and craft beers!
The theme this year is Urban Jungle… so think neon lights, waterfalls, plenty of tropical foliage and Avatar style jungle flora. As always, there’ll be a stellar line-up of DJs plucked from some of London’s biggest clubs, while street food kings Smoking Lotus and Burger Bear will be on duty so you don’t get famished. Head over to the Magic Roundabout Website to see the full line-up.
Location: Middle of Old Street Roundabout, EC1Y 1BE. Nearest Tube: Old Street.
The Prince Beer Garden
Open Daily. Free.
With things starting to heat up, it would only seem apt that you head to London’s outdoor drinking establishment. Yes, we’re talking about The Prince is West Brompton which has just opened its doors to its pub-food-hall hybrid complete with four restaurants, three different bars and what owners are claiming to be London’s largest beer garden.
The beer garden at The Prince has been given the look of a magic English summer garden, decked in wisteria and hydrangeas, and just in case the English weather plays havoc, the garden even has a retractable roof to protect you against the elements. Street food vendors include the likes of Patty & Bun, Coqfighter, Begging Bowl and Foley’s.
Location: 14 Lillie Road, SW6 1TT. Nearest Tube: West Brompton.
Things to Do This Weekend in Cardiff
Cardiff Burger Festival
Saturday 21st April. From £3.
The Cardiff Burger Festival returns to DEPOT this Saturday for a day of patties and buns. There’ll be a whole host of vendors serving up their takes on the humble burger, with everything from beef and pork, to chicken and bacon, as well as some vegan options.
There’ll be two sessions running over the day, with the earlier set aside as ‘family friendly’ before things start to heat up in the morning. As always at DEPOT, there’ll be a well-stocked bar serving crafts, cocktails and everything else in between, as well as plenty of entertainment and games throughout the day.
Location: DEPOT Cardiff, Construction House, Dumballs Road, CF10 5FE.
