PECKHAM PELICAN

92 Peckham Road, SE15 5PY
Peckham Rye

Coffee shop, turned art gallery turned gig venue, the Peckham Pelican does it all and the best thing? Those DIY bagels. For £1.50 you can get a toasted Brick Lane bagel and you can then add as many fillings as you like and with everything from peanut butter to roasted veg, smoked salmon to goats cheese on the menu, the only problem you’ll have is deciding.

YAM

HOLDRONS ARCADE 135A RYE LANE SE15 4ST
Peckham Rye

Vinyl junkies should take a trip to YAM Records. The tiny little record shop is tucked away in an arcade on Rye Lane. And when we say small, it’s really small, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find great records and they are always hosting events if you really wanna get in on the action.

NUNHEAD RESERVOIR

Nunhead Reservoir, United Kingdom
Nunhead

So this one might be in Nunhead, but it’s basically Peckham and SO worth a trip. Nunhead Reservoir is a covered reservoir (not one with ducks and rowing boats), but it does have some of the best views across London – the views are so good, you’ll forget about the empty tinnies and rubbish in the park…

 

400 RABBITS

143 Evelina Road, SE15 3HB
Nunhead

400-rabbits-loti-3

It’s defo worth hopping down to 400 Rabbits. The pizza joint keeps things simple with  a few starters, 6 pizzas (plus two specials) and a whole host of craft beers. The pizzas are bang on and all cost around a tenner and the salted caramel brownie is worth feeling sick for!

blue-tit-peckham-loti

Blue Tit’s Peckham branch is one of the originals, but it’s definitely no worse for wear because of it’s age. Having won several awards for it’s haircuts and super-friendly service, this is definitely the place to invest in a new barnet.

FRANK’S CAFE

Rye Lane, London SE15 4ST, United Kingdom
Peckham Rye

Frank’s is probably the only reason half of us head southhhhh of the river in the summer. Perched 10 floors up on the top of Peckham’s multi-story Frank’s has some of the best views across London, and with crazy art installations and street food grub, which you’ll need to sober up before you make it back down all those stairs, Frank’s really does have it all.

bar-story-loti

Bar Story is hidden under Peckham Rye station and with cocktails, craft beer, pizza and regular burger hook ups with Patty & Bun, it’s where the party is at. What’s more there’s a happy hour 6pm- 7pm Monday to Friday with 2 cocktails for £7 – BARGAIN.

PECKHAM PLEX

95A Rye Ln, SE15 4ST
Peckham Rye

This is probably the only cinema in London where you can catch a film for under a fiver; morning, noon or night you can catch the latest movies for the bargain price of £4.99. Yes, it might be a little grotty round the edges and doesn’t look like it’s changed since the 80s, but that just adds to the charm.

CANAVAN’S POOL CLUB

188 Rye Ln, London SE15 4NF, United Kingdom
Peckham Rye

A night at Canavan’s Pool Club is an experience… Open till 4am, this late-night pool club keeps the party going well into the night, and it’s not just about the pool either – this place is now a bit of a nightclub with after-hours DJ sets. But don’t expect anything classy, you’ll come out dripping in sweat (probably not your own) and stinking of beer.

FORZA WIN

133 Copeland Rd, London SE15 3SN, UK
Peckham Rye

Forza Win started as a rooftop pop-up back in 2012, now they have a permanent location in a restored warehouse just off Peckham Rye. They’re serving up simple Italian food, responsibly sourced and with very little waste. The menu changes daily but they always have a selection of pasta as well as dishes cooked in their wood-fired oven, and you can wash it all down with lots of Italian wine.

 

ASIDE

56 Goldsmith Road, Peckham, London SE15 5TF
Queens Road Peckham

From the team behind Old Spike Roastery, Coal Rooms, and Spike + Earl, this neighbourhood joint is serving londoners with a regularly changing menu of small plates and bites focusing on seasonal and local produce. We love the celeriac, chesnut & onion soup and the venison with jerusalem artichoke with plum, so if you see versions of those, order away.

DKUK

Holdrons Arcade, 135a Rye Lane, London SE15 4ST, UK
Peckham Rye

DKUK is not your typical salon by any means – but don’t worry, they still know their hair. Architect Sam Jacobs turned this salon into a gallery, removing all mirrors and replacing them with artwork. The space still has mirrors, but they aren’t meant for checking your self out. They act as an illusion to make the space seem a bit bigger – and a play on how we are (or aren’t) seen. Next time you’re in need of a tidy up, give this place a go.

KUDU

119 Queen's Rd, London SE15 2EZ, UK
Queens Road Peckham

Located on the busy Queen’s Road, cute little spot Kudu is a must visit. The space is very cosy, with a beautiful reclaimed wood parquet floor, warm pink walls, green leather banquettes and a bar with a few stools around the open kitchen. Their menu is short and sweet but don’t skip the Kudu bread, a fresh-out-the-oven loaf served with your choice of melted butter, the crispy fried artichokes with miso mayonnaise and the pig’s head tortellini.
