Hit Lerryns on Rye Lane for laid-back Peckham vibes; sit up front by the glass to watch the bizarre buzzing world of Rye Lane, or kick back al fresco in the garden and catch some morning rays. By the station? Hit Queen of the independents Small White Elephant for a Vietnamese coffee. And if you manage to leave without a slice of their secret recipe toasted coconut bread you're super human. Lerryns 200 Rye Lane SE15 4UR // Small White Elephant, 28 Choumert Road SE15 4SE 

BRUNCH

Brunch is everyone’s favourite meal of the day; London’s all over it and Peckham’s got it on lockdown. Pass the Afro-Caribbean hair salons and fish stalls and turn in to the haven that is Bellenden Village. More Primrose Hill than Peckham, this street is all village grocers, florists and cafes - one being Anderson & Co aka. the place that knew Peckham was cool before you did. Head through to the greenhouse yard for brunch with a side of botanicals; think eggy classics, Turkish yoghurt with granola and French toast. Rosie's is a new kid and does juicy sausage rolls that fix any hangover. Or sashay into the South London Gallery for brunch at its cafe No.67. It’s an all glass beauty serving up the infamous ‘Full Spanglish’ (chorizo hash). Anderson & Co, 139 Bellenden Road SE15 4DH // Rosie's, 28 Peckham Rye, SE15 JLR // No. 67, 67 Peckham Road SE5 8UH no67

LIQUID LUNCH

By now you’re in need of some serious booze and there’s nowhere better than Pedler. It’s the chicest spot on the strip (gold pineapples style). Owned by the legends behind Little Bird Gin, this gin cocktail bar/restaurant/all day hangout is what liquid lunches are about; small sharing plates like confit duck rosti and lobster rolls, homemade donuts and an epic wine and cocktail list. If you're on a date, ask us to book you in here. On a less fussy flex? Head to the top of Rye Lane and to Peckham Pelican where bagels and freshly topped pizzas are served up with local brews (Meantime and Brick Brewery) and £5 cocktails. Don't leave without knocking back a Mexican Smokebomb (mezcal shot chased with orange and cinnamon). Pedler, 58 Peckham Rye SE154JR // Peckham Pelican, 92 Peckham Road SE15 5PY PECKHAM.PEDLER

AFTERNOON PUB SESSION

Afternoons are for laid back liquidation in local boozers, and south London sure ain’t short on those. Time for a pub crawl, Peckham style. Back in Bellenden is your best bet with an influx of independents like The Gowlett, The Montpellier and The Victoria Inn, all classic and all give just as much as they get with hidden independent cinemas, rooms upstairs (for that kinda afternoon session) and serious snacks. Looking to booze with a view? The terrace out front of The Clockhouse overlooks Peckham Rye park (tip - hot boys playing football) or The Rye on the other side of the park has a mega garden and outdoor table tennis for all you outdoorsy types. The Gowlett, 62 Gowlett Road SE15 4HY // The Montpellier, 43 Choumert Road SE15 4AR // The Victoria Inn, 77-79 Choumert Road SE15 4AR // The Clockhouse, 196A Peckham Rye SE22 9QA // The Rye, 31 Peckham Rye SE15 3NX PECKHAM.CLOCK.HOUSE

HAPPY HOUR

Post-6pm is when Peckham’s in its prime. To the station - and no, you’re not going home. The party starts under the arches where old-timer Bar Story shows us how no-frills drinking is done. Hit it between 6 and 7pm to get hold of 2 cocktails for £7, and they’re the real deal; scribbled up on the chalkboard you’ll find an extensive menu from no nonsense Negronis to Tommy’s Margaritas and Long Islands (guilty).  Opposite you’ll find Peckham Springs, similar vibe to Bar Story but long benches inside mean you might have a shot at a seat. Cocktails from Slush Puppy machines are the deal here and The ES named these sippers the best value cocktails in London. Bar Story, 213 Blenheim Grove SE15 4QL // Peckham Springs, 22a Blenheim Grove, SE15 4QN  PECKHAM.SPRINGS

ROOFTOP VIBES

Yep, it's all about that bar on the roof of a carpark. Despite the hype, Frank's is actually awesome. The views across the city are some of the best around and if you're here at sunset you defo won't be needing a filter. Cheap cocktails, grilled food, hot crowd... get ready to queue.  Over it? The Bussey Building has a rooftop too and it's fun. Get up there and turn left not right or you're gonna end up midway through a movie 'cos Rooftop Cinema's up there doing its thing this summer too.

HOT DINNER DATE

Like most things, it all started with food. Peckham first got on the map because of its foodie vibe when London’s creative chefs bagged some cheap space down here and the rest is history. Whatever you’re after, you’ll find it here. Award-winning, impossible to get into but worth the wait your thing? Everyone’s raving about Artusi so you should probably go. We'll book your table. Want new? Mr Bao is doing the bun thing and it's awesome. Small Spanish plates and a sh*t load of epic sherry? Join the queue outside Miss Tapas. If Middle Eastern fare, rabbits roasted over a firepit and rare European wines get you going then Peckham Bazaar is for you, and yes they take bookings so ask us and we'll get it sorted.  If you're a planner (or use BarChick Concierge) you'll have already booked Forza Win for a stellar sit down affair of some of the best Italian food in London. If like BarChick you want cocktails with your cuisine then there’s only one place for you: Peckham Refreshment Rooms. Classic cocktails and sharer plates like fried parmesan dipped in honey. Pow. Sip an Espresso Martini 'cos it’s time get stuck in to Peckham’s late night scene. Artusi, 161 Bellenden Road SE15 4DH // Mr Bao, 293 Rye Lane, SE15 4UA // Miss Tapas, 46 Choumert Rd, London SE15 // Peckham Bazaar, 119 Consort Road SE15 3RU // Peckham Refreshment Rooms, Unit 4, 12-16 Blenheim Grove SE15 4QL PECKHAM.REFRESH

LATE NIGHT

Keeping it civilised? Take the party back to Pedler where the gin is flowing and cocktails are still being shaken.  Ask us to point you towards an underground kinda gothy late-night dive bar where boilermakers are waiting.  Ready to rave? The Bussey Building is calling, and yes you’re going to have to stand in that long queue that’s running down Rye Lane. The Bussey is a Peckham institution; by day it’s all yoga classes and art studios, come evening Rooftop Cinema and Kerb get involved and by night anything from Hawian Bop Disco to South London Soul Train take over its many floors pumping out good vibes, old school RnB and Motown until sunrise. Peckham, you’ve got this nailed.

Barchick Says

Date Updated: 21/02/2013

At last something a little more inventive (and slimming). We’ve busted out of our trousers over-doing it on the hot dogs and burgers in this town. Shutterbug brings crepes and cocktails to a well hidden spot just off Rivington Street. The décor is café style, laid back and you’ll more often than not find a glasses wearing, map tapping, freelancer scoffing on a smoke salmon, egg and asparagus crepe.

Their crepes are flippin’ good (savoury and sweet) and served up all day long whilst their cocktail list has had a helping hand from one of the boys around the corner in Callooh Callay- so you know they’re gonna be good. They’ve got Micheladas in the mix and a Mardi Gras Bourbon punch but it was early morning so we went for the Climpson’s Espresso Martini.

They’re open to holding private parties and come sunshine time they have a terrace out the back for smoking and sunning yourself. We also love the definition of a “Shutterbug”- an enthusiastic amateur photographer… we’re not by any chance in Shoreditch are we?
