The most interesting bars in London are hidden away. Whether it's Bourne & Hollingsworth down some secret stairs or the Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town behind a fridge in a diner, London loves a secret drinking hole.
But the bar that everyone is going nuts over at the moment is Frank's Campari Bar in Peckham. The only bar I know of on top of a multi-storey carpark. And the views are gorgeous. It's certainly one of the most unique places to sip a cocktail. And if you hit it at the right time, you'll be privy to some of the best sunsets across the city.
Cocktails are good, and they're pretty cheap at £5 a pop. The £15 bottle of wine we drank last night wasn't the best I've ever had, but drinkable enough to require another one shortly after. Frank's isn't fancy (you can't turn a carpark in to fancy, let's not try) but it is cool. And taking your friends to a carpark for their night out is a lot of fun indeed.
Go before September 30th, otherwise it'll be gone for another year. Then you'll be left with just a bunch of grumpy friends in a carpark.
