“Hello Babes” reads the pink luminous sign at Bussey Rooftop directed at customers as they enter the festive paradise. And yet it seems the biggest babes are the ones behind the re-opening because they’ve given us the gift of food, drinks galore and #viewgoals as the famed Peckham location transforms just for Christmas.
That’s right; Bussey Rooftop Bar is set to open for the first time this winter and they’ve gone all seasonal on us! Up until March you can recline under the twinkle of fairy lights whilst taking in views of London. It’s pretty much the ideal spot to keep a watchful eye out for Santa as he zooms past in his sleigh so that’s a plus! There’s a new drink on offer, the Mint Espresso Martini to tickle the taste buds. And who said happy hour needs to last just one hour? Bussey is going whole hog and offering up 2-4-1 drinks for two hours, between 5-7pm on weeknights. We’re going to end up on the naughty list at this rate, what with the incentive of happy hour, but it’s Christmas after all so hey-ho, ho, ho!
Dinner is also on the cards with Rockadollar’s food sensations, fronted by top chef Richard Sandiford perhaps better known for Hawksmoore fame! On the menu there’s Rare Breed 21-day aged steak burger alongside Masala mushroom chestnut and cashew burger and chilli beef or vegan hot dogs. Boy are we hungry now…then you can dance off the food to DJs blasting festive tunes.
So if you’re up for keepin’ Bussey at this re-vamped Christmas rooftop then it’s Fifth Floor Roof, Unit B, Bussey Building, 133 Rye Lane, SE15 4ST you should be heading. We’ll see you there! www.busseyrooftop.com
