This handsome hangout is a great place to get boozy with your favourite mates. Enjoy the warm hug of an antique arm chair in homely surrounds and with board games, pinball machines and football tables, on top of sophisticated dining and an extensive drinks list, you needn't ever leave your new second home.

The Sparrowhawk is a quaint venue, great for a cosy cuppa on those Sunday mid-morning lazy days, for a delicious meal any time of the day and for busting out the booze on a Friday night. With a picturesque garden for those summer sojourns, sip cocktails at cutesy picnic tables and join the comedy nights, yoga classes and Tai Chi lessons throughout the week.

This charming rustic haven with its wooden floors and antique furniture serves the finest of food and a great selection of cocktails. With a huge outdoor space, complete with colourful chairs, greenery and an impressive children's adventure playground, this place is a hot spot for Sunday summer afternoons and drunken shenanigans on the monkey bars.

The Exhibition Rooms is a trendy bar in Crystal Palace, great for indulging the taste buds with fine food and lounging around on colourful sofas in the bar area. Relax in snug surrounds and order a true South London tipple. The SE19 house cocktail contains locally distilled gin for a refreshing taste that smacks of the South London spirit.
