If your holidays still seem too far away and you need to get yourself into the summer mood desperately, you can just go to the beach. “That’d only happen in Neverland,” you say, sighing. And surprise, surprise, you’d be right: the first Thameside beach spot has just opened, offering a wide range of street food and allowing you to bring your own bottle.
Neverland is a new pop-up space in Fulham, located on Albert Wharf. Hosting street food traders such as Le Rac Shack, Le Bao, Taco Dave and Lucabuza Pizza, it allows its guests to taste the flavours of Alpine, Taiwanese, Mexican and Napolese cuisines on the 20-metre-long beach or in the shade of a wooden pergola roof. Daybeds, palm trees, swings and beach huts create the right atmosphere alongside the covered beer garden decorated with tiny orange trees.
How does its cocktail situation look like? The visitors can either order their drinks of choice from Unleaded Bar or bring their own alcohol (a bottle of wine or four bottles of beer/cider per person). The £10 entry covers the corkage fee and gives them the access to free seating areas at the tables and deckchairs.
The space welcomes parties, too. Groups of up to eight people can rent a beach hut for £80, and get-togethers that bring more than twelve guests to Neverland can get the access to a day party bed for £120. You can also rent beer pong tables and petanque courts, or even hire your personal Beach Butler who will mix the drinks for you.
To get in, make sure to get the tickets via their website, as just a limited number of them will be available at the door. Until the 3rd of October, Neverland opens at 6pm and closes at 11pm on the weekdays (from Wednesdays to Fridays) and extends their opening hours to 12pm-11pm on Saturday and 12pm-9.30pm on Sundays.
