Making plans for the week and need some inspiration? Try this clutch of offers, new venues, diary dates and pop-ups for your Canary Wharf social fix.

1. Chai Ki's Craft Beer Mondays

Get your skates on and WhatsApp your mates. Chai Ki at Crossrail Place is hosting the first of its Craft Beer Mondays on July 25.

Details are sketchy but we know it'll feature Sambrook's with an offer of a beer and matching bar plate for £5 from 6.30pm-9pm. Spicy.

Even better, the venue is nearly ready to launch its terrace (Monday, August 1), featuring a new summer menu including the likes of chicken pear chaat (£7.20) and miso butter chicken (£14.80).

2. The Canary Wharf Lunch Market

It's nearly that time again. Canary Wharf's Montgomery Square is gearing up for the estate's next lunch market .

Wednesday, August 3, will see the area flooded with the usual collection of street food stalls delivering something a bit different to your tired old Pret sandwich.

3. Craft London's Sipsmith Summer Terrace

It's open season on terraces in Canary Wharf right now (think Gancia at Boisdale and the superb Pine Cliffs Beach Club in Montgomery Square) so here's something a little further afield.

We’ve received advance warning Craft London in North Greenwich is all set to launch its Sipsmith Summer Terrace on Wednesday, August 3.

It will feature a range of cocktails priced from £8-£10 featuring locally foraged garnishes and lashings of Sipsmith gin to get you, well, lashed.

4. Grab a super-fast coffee at Starbucks

The coffee titan has unveiled its first European express store at Canary Wharf DLR and it's capable of delivering an Americano in one minute, 35 seconds.

By the time you've read this, you could have got one. Here's what we thought .

5. Try Waitrose's fresh breakfast menu

Bacon and avocado at Waitrose. Is there a finer combination first thing?

Curiously, the new breakfast menu at Waitrose Steak And Oyster Bar features neither cow flesh or shellfish.

While the former may disappoint our American readers (forced to pair pig with their eggs) and the latter might dismay budding Casanovas (he liked 50 oysters for breakfast), the revamped list is reasonably varied and priced.

Served at the Canada Place venue Monday-Friday, 8-11am, options range from sourdough toast and spread at £1.50 to the large traditional breakfast (or full English as it’s otherwise known) for £8.50.

There are few surprises – mostly breakfast-by-numbers – although the avocado and chilli with bacon (£6.50) should satisfy healthy types and pancakes with bacon and maple syrup (£7), right, may placate the Yanks.
