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 south side of the Thames.

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 our small plates or pizzas), beer pong everyday, and a DJ on Friday and Saturday evenings spinning Club Classics (Kisstory vibe), commercial R&B, House and Disco till the early hours. 

They can cater for any occasion and any group size up to 300 with 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 away-days, after work drinks, brunch, dinner birthdays or engagement parties.
