Smokey Kudu


Holy smokes, this South African-inspired bar is lit

Kudu is a) a type of antelope, and more importantly b) an epic South African restaurant in Peckham. The crew originally opened sister bar Smokey Kudu just up the road, but they've now relocated it to swish digs in the flagship Rixo store in Chelsea. Boozing while shopping your kinda multi-tasking? Get here STAT.

And bring a pen, won't ya? 'Cos once you see interior design in this place, you're gonna wanna take notes. It's got big Barbie movie energy, with pink, gold and green tones, a show-stopping circular bar, palm trees, beaut terracotta floors and racks on racks oF Rixo designs. Dreamy - just like the cocktails, which hint at chef/co-owner Patrick Williams' native South Africa. We say go for the Smokey Kudu (it's the bar's namesake, after all!), with smoky whiskey, Japanese whisky, bourbon and sherry. Punchy AF.
