What they say:
“Buster Mantis isn’t a project by some faceless company, we’re a local family who love our area and the people in it." This is a laid-back yet vibrant new space for the neighbourhood, with everything from coffee to cocktails served in the bar and something different unfolding in the adjacent creative space each time you visit. Home of authentic Jamaican experiences, just take it easy when you’re sampling the "dangerously strong house rum punch."
What we say:
Offering a dedicated creative space to those who might not have the resources to host events, there’s a genuine community feel to Buster Mantis. Based in two Grade II listed arches below Deptford station, Arch 4 hosts exhibitions, screenings, pop-ups and everything in between. Next door is all about drinking and dining, with Buster Mantis promising some "slightly more obscure and exotic offerings" from the Caribbean, as well as some trademark smoky jerk chicken cooking.
