Summer’s…. well, if not quite here yet, it’s apparently en route. And this weekend Frank’s Cafe on the rooftop of Peckham’s multistorey car park re-opens for another year, drawing in crowds from across London who usually wouldn’t find themselves anywhere near SE15 (you should try it, it’s lovely).
Alongside excellent drinks and a decent food menu (albeit one that often runs out of stuff later in the day) Frank’s offers arguably the best view of the London skyline from south of the river. The car park also hosts the annual Bold Tendencies art exhibition, which we’ve previously found a bit uneven, although there are usually a few talking points to be found among the works on display, particularly after you’ve sunk that third Negroni.
Frank’s Cafe opens 30 June and runs until the end of September, Thurs-Sun each week from 11am till 10pm. Here are the food and drink menus. It’s on the top floor of Peckham multi-storey car park, at 95A Rye Lane, SE15 4ST, beside Peckham Rye station. We’d tell you how exactly to reach the cafe but that takes away part of the fun…
