Deliveroo's slot machine stunt

Deliveroo delivered a slot machine stunt at London’s Waterloo train station earlier this week, in which commuters got to play on a nostalgic arcade game for the chance to win samples from its most popular restaurant partners. These included Hummingbird Bakery and Yo!Sushi. There were also some jackpot surprises on offer.

Krispy Kreme’s Hole in the Wall

The images from Krispy Kreme’s Hole in the Wall pop-up, which opened this week, have seemingly got people’s tastebuds going. The public has the chance to unlock a doughnut shaped hatch and sample a new Nutty Chocolatta creation, filled with Nutella. It costs £2 a go, but all proceeds go to the brand’s supported charity Teenage Cancer Trust.

Aperol Spritz Terrazza

Aperol Spritz Terrazza

The opening of Aperol Spritz’ Terrazza signals that summer is definitely on the way. Located at Bird of Smithfield, near St Paul’s, the rooftop bar will be open until the end of August and is inspired by the Terrazza Aperol in Milan. The bar also features a GIF photobooth for guests to share their summertime moments.

Kronenbourg 1664’s dog pop-up bar

Images from Kronenbourg 1664’s D’Alsace-tian dog pop-up bar were also a popular read this week. The bar was staffed by professionally trained Alsatians who delivered bottles of ice cold Kronenbourg to customers in a mini barrel worn round their necks, inspired by the kegs worn by St. Bernard rescue dogs.

Sky’s kids cafe
