July is here and it brings with it new restaurants, bars, pop-ups and food trends! Here are just 5 of the best events on July’s agenda.
Trade Union, Wapping is a pioneering concept which combines four businesses in under roof. Founding chef and restaurateur Adam Marshall explains, “I’ve been in the industry for about 20 years and I’m the sort of person who likes to think about how things can be done differently and better. “I was just thinking one day whether a bar or restaurant is enough nowadays or could it be improved as a concept? This is what we came up with.”
On the menu you can expect to find a seasonal cocktail list and a pizza-focused menu with “just-out-of-the-oven sourdough pizzas and fresh, New York inspired dishes.”
As the hospitality sector continues to evolve, could Trade Union’s co-existing space be the answer? We hope so!

You may as well say goodbye to your summer body this year and head down to POND Dalston for some heart-stopping treats.
Joining them is Uncle Monte’s; purveyors of Monte Cristo sandwiches which are loaded with cheese & meat, deep fried, covered with a dusting with icing sugar and served with strawberry jam.
If that wasn’t enough for you, you can end the meal with a Freakshaker, which is the latest trend to hit London’s food scene. We recommend the Pina Colada inspired ‘Freak Shake Sinora’. It’s a real gut buster.
Find them at POND Dalston, 3 Gillett St, London N16 8JH.
