Sama Bankside


For a great night out look no further than SAMA Bankside, the recently opened late night bar, restaurant and events space set over 2 floors near Blackfriars.

SAMA Bankside has great cocktails, Beer Pong, Happy Hour and a DJ on the weekends. Perfect for after-work drinks, birthdays, engagement parties and corporate parties, SAMA Bankside is proving to be 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), happy hour on selected drinks Monday-Friday 5pm-7pm, 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.

SAMA Bankside - London Bar Review

SAMA Bankside - London Bar Review

Not everything needs to reinvent the wheel. Sometimes, a bar doesn’t need to serve the distilled essence of vodka and your soul in a boot to be a good cocktail bar and, actually, London might not need another small plates restaurant, thank you. So in the search for somewhere that serves amazing cocktails…
