The Lido Café


Us BarChicks dig a bit of breaststroke, and boozing of course. So The Lido Café, where you can do both al fresco style (although perhaps not simultaneously?) is a winner. Pitched up on the poolside of Brockwell’s Lido, The Lido Café has a cocktail menu that seriously outdoes the modest size of the place. There are separate menus for sparkling aperitifs, long ‘all day drinking’ numbers and short ones that get straight to the point. The menu is packed full of British booze brands like Sipsmith Gin and fresh coffee from South London roasters, these dudes are keeping it local.

With an outdoor lounge and poolside tables where you can kick back and watch the swimmers lap past (we all know swimmers have bangin’ bods right?) - The Lido Café has become a firm favourite daytime drinking spot.

If all that breaststroke has worked up quite an appetite, their monthly menu is guaranteed to satisfy. It’s patriotic and packed with seasonal British produce from smoked haddock fishcakes on a bed of spinach and aged beef burgers in brioche buns, to buttermilk pancakes.

Head here on a Tuesday and grab a glass of Prosecco for £3. Tuesday boozeday, sorted.
