Pergola Paddington transforms into a Tulum-inspired beach club this April

April 28th will see Pergola, one of the capital’s most loved rooftops, transform into a brand new summertime pop up: Pergola Paraíso. An escapist paradise with a feel good summer energy, the Tulum-inspired beach club will take its cues from the balmy beaches of Mexico, offering guests an immersive drinking and dining experience like no other. Complete with pop-up restaurants from the likes of Crudo Cevicheria and Dos Mas Tacos, an extensive menu of Margaritas, a centrepiece dance floor and much more, Pergola Paraíso will be the only place to party this summer, bringing a dose of Mexican sunshine to the heart of West London.

Following sell out pop-ups with their Wunderbar and Deck the Halls takeovers, Pergola Paraíso will be the venue’s biggest transformation to date, with a total design overhaul for this new experience. Guests will be welcomed through a striking archway framed by palm trees and leading into a tropical paradise complete with wicker chairs, comfy sofas and a bespoke mural. Pergola’s food hall-style seating will be replaced with an abundance of Mexican plants and foliage, traditional rattan furniture, hammocks, kilim rugs and hanging ornaments for a lighter, more luxurious atmosphere.

There will also be bookable cabana-style day beds, ideal for al fresco celebrations with friends, from lunch dates through to late night parties. The space will boast a large dance floor, a first for Pergola Paddington, with a roster of well-known DJs playing beach house at parties throughout the summer. Weekly ticketed ‘Dusk’ events will be spectacular affairs with dancers, fire performers, live percussion and DJs bringing Tulum-style boho flamboyance to West London.

Pergola has teamed up with celebrated purveyors of Mexican cuisine Crudo Cevicheria and Dos Mas Tacos to bring a true taste of Mexico to Pergola Paraíso. A weekly rotating programme of events, from Margarita Mondays to Taco Tuesdays will also be on offer, alongside a re-imagined Filth&Co Burger Shack.

Pergola Paraíso have partnered with Corona to create this summertime experience, where there will of course be refreshing Corona beer on draught and bottled table service, as well as Corona’s brand new alcohol free beer ‘Corona Cero’.

Unlike previous pop-ups, Pergola Paraíso will largely remain free to enter with no need to purchase a ticket, perfect for locals and office workers looking to upgrade their lunch break or post work drinks. With a plethora of space for walk-ins, Pergola Paraíso will see a welcome return to the golden days of spontaneity with free-spirited hedonism at the forefront, transporting guests to sunnier climes.

Pergola Paraíso will run from 28th April – mid-September. Further details of the additional vents will be announced shortly.
