South London

Your guide to the best bars in the South of the city.

214 Bermondsey

If gin is your tipple of choice then make it your mission to find this basement cocktail bar which is hidden beneath the streets of Bermondsey, just a short walk from London Bridge. With a trendy industrial style, its got a classy but edgy atmosphere with a huge cocktail list. A dimly-lit hideaway, the drinks are the stars of the show, with a host of specialist gin cocktails on offer.


Bunga Bunga Battersea

This Italian-themed club is packed to the rafters every Friday and Saturday. Beneath the pizzeria, you’ll find a Roman DJ booth, a classy prosecco bar and a retro mirrored ceiling. There’s also Karaoke events on every Thursday and the delectable pizzas make it a spot worth checking out throughout the week


Doodle Bar

Toilet graffiti may be a regrettable part of the culture of the British pub, but The Doodle Bar has embraced our love of a good scribble and brought it out into the open. Don’t expect to see ‘Gaz woz ere’ scrawled on the walls though, this is all about encouraging creativity and has been embraced by some pretty nifty illustrators. Doodle Bar is located under the archways in Bermondsey and is one of our much loved here at Chillisauce.


Frank's Cafe

This summer rooftop pop-up bar offers amazing views across London from the heart of Peckham. It’s got loads of great drinks and an amazing menu on offer too but the views are what really draws the revellers in. Expect hipsters aplenty - but don’t let that put you off, there’s a pretty chilled atmosphere ideal for all.

Little Nan's

As comfortable and welcoming as you would expect of a place named Little Nan’s, it’s also suitably kitschy and cosy. It’s chocked full of cool characters all soaking up the old-time atmosphere, vintage decor and they even serves cocktails in teapots. The curiously odd collection of pictures and knick knacks are so carefully haphazard that you won’t be able to stop yourself staring at the surrounding decor, but there is substance to go with the unique style too.


The Rooftop St. James

This stunning rooftop bar lifts you high above the bustling Trafalgar Square for one of the most impressive and iconic views of central London. Fantastic for enjoying the sunshine during warm, lazy days, you also get to soak up the sight of London in all its lit-up glory as evening sets in – all while supping on sumptuously prepared cocktails, given a fresh twist with fresh herbs picked from the very garden that surrounds you.


The Miller

After undergoing an extensive refurb, The Miller has quickly established itself as one of London’s most fun-filled watering holes. Indulge in table tennis on the rooftop terrace, catch live music upstairs, admire the edgy, urban art adorning the walls, or simply tuck into deliciously filthy hot dogs washed down with quality craft beers. An arty crowd and bohemian buzz gives this place a unique vibe across every floor.


Tamesis Dock

Set on a moored boat on the Thames, this place has one of the best views of all bars in London. Located in Vauxhall, you’ll have a clear view of the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and loads of other London icons. It even hosts popular live music nights on the weekend, as well as having a full and varied menu of both food and drinks. It’s perfect in the summer, but in winter just wrap up warm and enjoy a hearty meal while you’re on deck.
