Bussey Rooftop Bar

The Bussey Rooftop Bar is here to save the summer.

We are going to be well and truly spoilt for choice come April 12, given the number of excellent rooftop spots opening up for feasting, drinking, and long-overdue shenanigans. With Skylight, Roof East, SUSHISAMBA and more already confirmed to open, the competition for your first sweet sip of post-lockdown bevs is hotting up – and now, the fine people of Peckham have another option, right on their doorstep.

Famed for their captivating views of London, the Bussey Rooftop will once be whipping up some fabulous cocktails, including both classics and Bussey originals. They’re promising an all-new menu that’ll “welcome in your best summer ever”, so no pressure with that one. Meanwhile, food comes from the pizza pros at Share A Slice, who don’t only dish up wood-fired pizzas for you, but will also donate a pizza to a person in need for every one you buy. A truly lovely initiative!

To comply with government guidelines for reopening, Bussey Rooftop Bar will be fully seated and hosted for guests (in groups of up to six people), and will make use of cashless online ordering and food and drink delivery. They’ll be open for walk-ins (pending availability), but are currently only accepting bookings from April 12 to May 16. That’s because they’re making plans for the remainder of the summer, when the likely easing of lockdown restrictions allows for a little more free-spirited fun. Ahh, to be back up atop the Bussey Rooftop with a pint in hand and the breeze gently ruffling your hair? It’s so close we can almost taste it…

Find the Bussey Rooftop Bar at 133 Rye Lane, Peckham, SE15 4ST. Nearest station is Peckham Rye. You can book your spot here.
