messageFavourite bar in Peckham?
Posted by poch 08 July, 2018 15:58

Anyone got a particular favourite? Or could share a hidden gem? Am looking for a birthday party venue - somewhere that looks nice, with a nice atmosphere, where I can hopefully reserve some tables/space. Also hoping to play some music....
Have looked at Near and Far at the Levels, the new Nines, and Peckham Springs but if anyone has any bright ideas, they'd be gratefully received! Thanks.

Not a bar but super friendly and open to reserving you lots of space, The Hope. Or try Batch Cocktail Bar.

The Nuns Head has an upper floor you can hire.

Poch, maybe you could change the title to Pub suitable for a party? The other ones I know of are the Ivyhouse, Waverley Arms (small room) and Earl of Derby at the Telegraph (also has an upstairs room). These are all in the Nunhead area, at the moment I can't think of a Peckham one with a separate area.

Thanks for the suggestions! And thanks Renata. I'm not really looking for a separate space - more a bar where we can reserve some tables. Will check out Batch and The Hope.

Thanks all. Think we're actually going to go for The Pelican. Main decider was manager being chilled about us playing some music, plus nice cool space.

It's a bit more in deepest darkest Peckham on Commercial Way, but I used to love going in the Duke of Sussex. It's run (or at least was a couple of years ago) by an awesome Irish chap called Finton. He would be happy to allocate a space. It's a great pub, friendly staff, will do food and I'm sure he wouldn't mind you playing your own music for a few hours too.

How many? No longer a favourite pub but the Clock House has quite a nice upstairs bar that is cheap to hire - just guarantee a certain level of taking at the bar.

Bar Story otherwise.

Batch is a great bar - you get a free glass of prosecco on arrival, Phil is passionate about his back bar, great cocktails and music. And love the fact that they provide plates and cutlery for you when you bring in your own food. We had a delicious takeout from Banh Banh just a couple of doors down. Highly recommended!

Batch looks intriguing, but has never been open when I've gone past. Do you know what the opening hours/days are?

Generally not open on Sundays (but was while the world cup was on), not sure about Mondays, other days generally from 6pm.

New favourite is this amazing place in Copeland Park. Well tucked away, but so worth finding.

[kanpai.london]

Downstairs they brew stunning, award-winning sake and upstairs they have a tap room where you can sample the freshest sake youíll ever taste in this country. We also tried a gorgeous sake-based cocktail. You can slurp some of their Barmanís Ramen while you drink.

Only open at the weekend, but an absolute gem!

Is the Peckham Liberal Club still a thing?

messageRe: Favourite bar in Peckham?
Posted by tiddles January 10, 10:54AM

Herne Tavern has an area that is part of the pub but can be reserved for private parties etc - I am pretty sure they will let you play music (seen some discos etc in that area)

have a great time!

Yes the Peckham Liberal club is still going.Bob S

Clock does room upstairs for free if you can guarantee a bar spend. OK for around 40. Nice location, food and beer underwhelming.

Is Voodoo Rays any good. Rye lane, Peckham park end.

messageRe: Favourite bar in Peckham?

I like Voodoo Rays. Nice pizza, by the slice

messageRe: Favourite bar in Peckham?

The pizza is OK... it's not exactly a gourmet destination. Think enormous Pizza Hut style pizzas, cut into slices and re-heated when you order them. Consider it fast food, you won't be disappointed. And I quite like American style pizza, anyway.

You can go in just for drinks too - in fact I think a lot of people do. It's really just a large bar with a counter at the end serving pizza.

I grab a pizza which they will usually keep hot for me - and have a drink or two.

As a testament to how trendy Peckham has become, not a single mention for the Nag's Head!

messageRe: Favourite bar in Peckham?
Posted by Seabag March 09, 08:14AM

The Nags Head, try that, itís in the Old Town, where Peckham is still Peckham.

If not, the members bar at Quo Vadis in Soho is super.
