SquareMeal Review of Near & Far

Buzzing from the day in December 2017 that it launched in Peckham’s old multi-storey car park, this criminally cool cocktail bar and social is the latest venture from the brains behind Old Street party space, The Magic Roundabout. The look resembles a B-movie recreation of a 1950s Palm Springs tiki lounge, courtesy of tropical foliage-print wallpaper, pre-loved furniture, a sprinkle of kitsch and a central island bar lit in iris-blue and fuchsia-pink hues. To a soundtrack of banging Studio 54 disco, Afro funk, rare groove and holiday house, punters tuck in to celebratory fizz, everyday wines and laddish brews. But it’s cocktails that create the stir: try the pisco and cachaça Sours, though don’t forget Emergency Brexit (an orange-infused gin, cucumber and thyme Negroni manqué). Hungry? If Near & Far’s olives, almonds and popcorn don’t satisfy, explore the adjacent stalls and kitchens that punt decent street food from, ahem, near and far.
