The Bussey Rooftop Bar is reopening from 4 July with pizza, cocktails and views for days – plus it’s had an absolutely glorious makeover…
The rooftop bar in Peckham has doubled in size and now has even more seating. As well as one of south London’s best views, it also offers sundowner cocktails, pizza and more.
Open for advance bookings from Friday 26 June, Bussey Rooftop Bar will be open seven days a week, from Monday to Friday in the evenings and noon till late on weekends.
To keep things nice and COVID-secure, seating will be socially distanced, there will be multiple sanitation stations and visors and gloves for staff, and food and drinks will be ordered via an app.
Food will be provided by Share a Slice. A pizzeria with a difference, Share a Slice, which also has an outlet at Pop Brixton, donates a pizza to help feed the homeless for every pizza sold.
So order yourself an Aperol Spritz or Strawberry Daiquiri alongside a Pizza Bianca, topped with truffle oil and sauteed portobello mushrooms – or a Double Nduja with two types of chorizo, tomato and fior di latte – and know you’re doing some good in the world.
Both covered and uncovered areas are available to book, kids are welcome up until 5pm, and dogs on leads can join in the fun too.
The Bussey Building is also the home of Rooftop Film Club, which has pivoted to offer a drive-in movie experience over at Ally Pally this year.
‘At Rooftop we have always been about bringing people together for good times and we want to continue to do that albeit safely, during this age of social distancing’
Rooftop Film Club co-founder and CEO Gerry Cottle said: ‘At Rooftop we have always been about bringing people together for good times and we want to continue to do that albeit safely, during this age of social distancing.
‘While we can’t bring [Rooftop Film Club] back just yet, we can use this rooftop space to reopen and extend the beloved Bussey Rooftop Bar. It’s important to us that our staff get to return to work and that Londoners get the chance to enjoy themselves against the backdrop of our amazing view once again.’
Open Mon-Fri from 5pm-10.30pm and weekends from 12noon-10.30pm at 133 Rye Lane, Peckham SE15 4ST. Book in advance via busseyrooftopbar.com
