Something About June By The Popup Project


Something About June By The Popup Project

On the perfect weekend of summer, The Popup Project put together a very diverse collection of small brands ranging from clothing, jewellery to home decor and food. Leena and Sheema, of The Popup Project, curated this event at the Bangalore International Centre, Domlur on the 10th and 11th of June for a refreshing and rejuvenating experience as we walked through the numerous stalls that were one different from another.

  • Parapo

How disappointing is it to have your favourite drink made differently by every bartender! The founder of the Zivame, Kapil Karekar has come up with Parapo, a non-alcoholic Exotic Cocktail and Mocktail Premix to immerse yourself in drinks made by YOU! They have a wide palette of flavours like Tuscan Sun which is made of Orange Rind and Rosemary, Crimson Glow – made with Hibiscus, Lemongrass and Basil, and Autumn Caress that has the flavours of Pear and cinnamon. But the list does not end here and that’s why you need to check them out, probably at the next Popup Project.

Now, anybody can make a cocktail!

Something About June by The Popup Project was an impeccable place where every stall, every brand had a story to tell.
