Bussey Bar Review

Bussey Bar is featured in these Guides:

Top 10 things you need to know about Bussey Bar:

1)  NASA has the Kennedy Space Centre, but where do aspiring Tim Peakes train in the UK? The Bussey rooftop bar in Peckham? There is no cover charge but ascending the four floors of the building via the endless staircase certainly requires top athleticism.

2)  The view of London from the summit is breathtaking. Our metropolis has never looked more futuristic with buildings like The Shard in the background. Even Peckham itself seems acceptably pleasant from this vantage point and without mood-enhancing background music.

3)  If the sun is out, it’s strongly advised to arrive early, as keen Londoners flock to this training centre to make the most of wine and beer flights. It very quickly becomes standing room only despite the few tables and benches available for guests. The gathered trainees are mostly young Peckhamites in-the-know, as the Bussey building isn't so easy to locate.

4)  What do astronauts like to drink? Frontier beer, of course; new-world hops with old-world brewing techniques combined for a refreshing concoction.

5)  If you need a stronger drink but not something that tastes like rocket fuel, they serve Jack Daniel’s mule specials as well as tasty Jack Daniel’s honey shots.

6)  In space, astronauts suffer a tremendous amount of muscle loss, so, in preparation, feed up on the most tender and juicy rump steak sarnies imaginable, courtesy of rooftop pop-up, Forza Win.

7)  It may look like a simple, earthly street food stall, but the food they produce is otherworldly. A white bean crostini might not sound appetising, but it is made addictively attractive with the use of garlicky white beans mixed with indulgent nduja butter and Parmesan.

8)  Of course, all great projects need a sponsor; here, the generous benefactor is Nespresso, hence a coffee bar and a funky, free photo booth for those all important photos to help bond the crew together. Just one small step....

9)  If bad weather hits your imbibing endeavours up on the roof, free waterproof ponchos are provided, although typical British summer time rain isn't going to deter hardy Londoners from reaching the final frontier.

10) If the training manual isn't detailed enough, you can always pop next door to the rooftop cinema and watch The Martian. You might pick a few tips on how to get home.
