Sama Bankside


For a great night out look no further than SAMA Bankside, we're a Late Night Bar, Restaurant, Party Venue, Beer Pong and Corporate Event Space in Southwark by Blackfriars Bridge on the Southbank.

Voted Best All In One Venue 2017/18 by Design My Night, SAMA Bankside has great cocktails, Beer Pong, Pizzas and a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. Perfect for after-work drinks, birthdays, engagement parties and corporate parties, SAMA Bankside is a hugely popular venue.

Featuring an extensive cocktail menu (look out for the Under the Arch, a firm favourite!), freshly cooked food (try the sharing platters & the jerk-inspired chicken wings), beer pong everyday and a DJ every Friday and Saturday spinning those tunes you know and love from 9pm, with commercial R&B, chart and house favourites.

They can cater for any occasion and any group size from 4 to 350 with our booths, sofas, semi-private areas, a private dining room and entire lower floor or venue hire.

With exposed brickwork oozing an urban industrial feel, SAMA Bankside would not be out of place in Brooklyn or Berlin and is a welcoming place to hold meetings, have lunch, after work drinks, dinner or hangout and work there during the day.
