Dishoom Chowpatty Beach Pop-up Beach Bar on the Southbank

Dishoom Bombay Cafe re-creates the feeling of a Bombay cafe, and offers an all-day menu of Indian food and drink.

"Waterloo sunset. Pink sky, warm summer evening. Big Ben and the London Eye to the west, St Paul’s to the east. Strolling along to Southbank Centre, you see sand, bunting and hundreds of Londoners young and old, enjoying the Festival of Britain 60th anniversary celebrations.
But then you hear the enchanting sound of Hindi music.You notice the spicy aroma of fresh Pau Bhaji. Chilled Thums Up bottles clink. Children chase balloons across the sand.You see a colourful old fishing boat, full of green coconuts, ready to be cut open and sipped from. Naughty Gola Ices look cool and tempting. Where did the old grey portakabin go? And who put this crazy Indian beach shack up on the South Bank?"

When - 13th May - 4th October

Where - Queen Elizabeth Hall Terrace, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
