An 'Aperol Lido' Is Coming To East London

Love Aperol? Love it enough to dip your toes in the stuff?

An 'Aperol lido' comes to Shoreditch in May — a bright orange pool (probably not of actual Aperol — think of the pi**ed-up wasps) on which you can get selfies on orange slice floats. You can even have a little paddle. No swimming though, and we wouldn't recommend drinking it either.

Alongside the pool, there's an 'Aperol' waterfall, revolving carousel bar, ball pool, and Fiat-500 hot tubs — which you CAN submerse yourself in. Oh yes, and plenty of drinkable Aperol too.

If you can't wait that long, check out our list of the best places for an Aperol spritz in London.

The Aperol Spritz Big Birthday Social celebrates 100 years of Aperol — and take place in Hoxton Square, Shoreditch, from 23 May-1 June. Standard tickets £10, including two Aperol spritzes and some Italian aperitivo.
