Peckham Levels will officially launch to the public on Thursday 8th December, bringing street food, studios and all-round good time vibes to South London. The ‘too-cool-for-cars’ multi-story car park on Rye Lane is expected to become a thriving cultural hub, housing more than 100 separate businesses.
The space is already home to Franks cafe – the only rooftop bar that warrants a 10-storey climb to the top via an obnoxious, yet photogenic, neon pink staircase. After a long summer spent boozing alfresco on level 10, Londoners will be pleased to hear that the Peckham Levels team have brought the party inside in time for Winter.
Levels 1 and 2 will be transformed into 30 private studios for artists, fashion designers and sculptors.
Levels 3 and 4 will contain 20 private studios for freelancers, plus a co-working space with 80 desks, music rehearsal spaces and recording studios.
Levels 5 and 6 will be home to street food traders. Serving up a slice of South London will be Camberwell’s Kurdish restaurant and coffee shop Nandine; Oval Farmer’s Market’s Chinese street food vendors Hao Hao Chi; and chicken burger kings, Otherside Fried. Arguably the most exciting arrival to Peckham Level’s street food scene will be Canard, a brand new hotly-tipped duck-focused dive. The outlet will be serving mains such as ‘The Mighty Duck’ with buttermilk fried duck breast patty, confit duck, Montgomery’s Cheddar, smoked bacon rasher, gherkins, spicy cherry jam and cayenne mayo all packed into a pillow-soft brioche bun. Sides will include ‘Duck Poutine’ loaded with duck fat frites, shredded duck confit, chedder cheese curds, gravy and duck skin crisps, as well as ‘Confit Duck Croquettes’ served with mustard mayo and spicy cherry jam. Let. Us. In.
