What they say:
This new cocktail bar in Peckham is the latest venture from the team behind the highly popular Magic Roundabout on Old Street. Already experts at throwing parties in interesting and unusual spaces, the bar is located inside the multistory-car-park-turned-community-hub, Peckham Levels. The decor is Palm Springs meets Peckham, featuring plenty of pink and palm trees, while the menu offers rhubarb martinis and a cocktail dubbed the 'Peckham Sunrise'.
What we say:
Near & Far is the latest addition to new community hub Peckham Levels. Based on the 6th floor of the former car-parking complex, just one floor down from the beloved Frank's Cafe, this quirky little cocktail bar will no doubt be a successful addition to Rye Lane's thriving nightlife scene. With such close proximity to the site of Simon Whybray's iconic pink stairwell, it's only fitting that the decor at Near & Far is heavy on the millennial pink, with some lush greens and rose golds thrown in for good measure. The bar will also see a healthy weekend programme of DJs, as well as plans to host markets, exhibitions and other events.
