If you’re looking for a stunning view of London, an extensive cocktail list and some diverse cuisine then Frank’s Cafe is the place to be. Having appeared on the latest series of ‘Don’t tell the Bride’, it really puts Peckham on the map and definitely deserves a mention. In essence, the site is a disused car park and on approach we were greeted by a burley bouncer who directed us up 4 levels of the car park. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t have a great expectation of what I saw at first but as we reached the roof top, the view was stunning – the sun was setting and the whole city was glistening in its full glory. We approached the bar and ordered some Caipirinha coctails at £6 each. As we admired the view on one of their picnic benches, we were drawn in by the smell of delicious BBQ food. We ordered jerk chicken which was served rustic on a bed of potatoes, with a side helping of mac ‘n’ cheese. Both were simple and delicious and at a reasonable price (£12 for both). After a few more cocktails, we headed down one level to watch a production of Shakespeare’s ‘Titus’ for something cultural. Frank’s was set up in 2008 by bartender Frank Boxer and chef Michael Davies:
Open Tuesday – Friday 5pm to 11pm / Saturday & Sunday 11am to 11pm.
