Ever reached the top of a multi-storey car park and thought to yourself, ‘Now what this place really needs is a Campari bar?’. The guys at Frank’s in Peckham did, and they’ve converted said car park into a rooftop bar for the ages. You can see the entire London skyline, there’s masses of room to sprawl with a crew, tasty grilled food, and excellent (and reasonably priced) drinks, including excellent Aperols and negronis. There being no roof, it’s obviously grim when it rains, and the queue is agonisingly long past 7pm - but it is absolutely worth faking a hernia for in order to bunk off work early.
