Southeast 15’s bar scene needs Social – a place to work and get coffee during the day, and have casual beers and top-notch cocktails by night, situated just a stone’s throw from Peckham Rye station.

Social doesn’t stray too far from the mantra that spaces are always multifaceted and usable. Thus, this old warehouse space was developed into Peckham’s premier colourful, and casual, outdoor meeting place. Following a complete refurbishment, the bar comes with its own large patio area, which has three shutters opening out onto it – perfect for sunny days. The refit allows for a light and airy indoor space with a lounge area concealed away from the main bar on a mezzanine above, with skylights to watch the stars from.

Social also serves up a delicious coffee blend by Hundred House Coffee and locally sourced craft beer and cider from London Beer Factory and Hawkes Brewery, alongside a cocktail menu of modern classics.

With the presence of Copeland Gallery next door, deciding on the Social’s wall art was no easy task but the main piece on permanent display is by Peckham’s own Katrina Russell Adams who painted the huge signature Copeland Park mural on its HQ opposite. This synergy is also fitting, as the original print that the mural was based on sits in the Social. Artwork will be displayed on a quarterly basis, and will continue to showcase local talent such as Bussey Building resident Jo Brinton, known for her 2018 creative research project with GOSH Arts at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

A space that celebrates the best local talent in Peckham, Social is the place for people to come together, catch up and discuss ingenious collaborations of their own over a beer and delicious cocktails.
