Franks Cafe, the rooftop restaurant & bar in Peckham, re-opens for 2016 on Thursday 19th May. Perched on the top of a multi-storey car park, ten stories high, it's one of the original London pop-up restaurants - first opening for the summer in 2008 - and still one of the best. Take the lift for the 10th floor, and walk up from there, past Bold Tendencies' art, til you get to the rooftop. There you'll find the bar and restaurant open Tuesday-Sunday until the end of Sept, and serving seasonal food, freshly cooked. Plus, the views are stunning!
"Frank's Cafe is the flagship architectural commission of Bold Tendencies in Peckham. The bar was designed by Practice Architecture (Paloma Gormley & Lettice Drake), and opened in 2008 by bartender Frank Boxer and chef Michael Davies.
Bold Tendencies is a summertime non-profit commissioning art project, now in its 10th year. It commissions site-specific works of visual and performing art most noted for large-scale sculpture. Bold Tendencies is now a firm fixture in the international exhibition calendar, having welcomed over half a million visitors to the car park.
Children and dogs welcome"
