The team behind the Magic Roundabout are launching a Magic Car Park in south London.
The new venue, Near & Far, will boast wacky interiors, quirky drinks and panoramic views of London, and will takeover part of an old Peckham car park. It was designed by the award-winning team at Finch Interiors, winners of UK’s Best Bar in 2015 and 2016 for their work on The Breakfast Club and The Escapologist.
It will open on Level 6 of Peckham Levels, a project set to transform Peckham’s merky multi-storey car park into something beautiful. The previously unused levels of the car park beneath Frank’s Café (don’t worry, that’s not going anywhere) will now be used as a space for art studios, yoga and other community activities, as well as those all-important areas for boozin’ and bingein’.
Near & Far will pay subtle homage to Peckham’s famous market trade, and the space will be filled with fun contrasts: palm trees and disco balls; modern and vintage furniture. The cocktail menu will follow the market trade-theme, with locally-sourced ingredients meeting imports from all around the world. Rhubarb Martini, anyone?
Near & Far will open on Friday 8th December, and you can RSVP to the launch party here. It’s free to RSVP and you’ll get exclusive offers on food and drink throughout the night. Get involved!
