This notorious prison themed pop up is one of London's best immersive cocktail bars. Don your orange jumpsuit and find a good hiding spot for your booze, because if the guard catches you, you may not get to sample some of the coolest concoctions in town.

The Medieval Banquet

Be transported back in time for one of the most different events of the year. Join Henry VIII in his court, as you feast on five courses with wine and beer throughout. Amongst the entertainment are brave sword-fighting knights, magicians, jugglers and minstrels. And once the night ends, you can all storm the dance floor with some more up-to-date tunes.

From fight nights through to mad bottomless brunches and games, Belushi's is a top London bar that's keeping you entertained this bank holiday.
