The original Four Quarters in Peckham is awesome because besides putting together great drinks and 80’s style arcade machines, it has a party atmosphere that packs the punters in every night. Four Quarters East, out by the Here East Olympic development in Hackney Wick, is awesome for similar reasons, but has a much more laid-back vibe, probably due to its lazy canalside location. Besides great craft beer and spirits, there’s everything from arcade machines, console booths (Playstation, Nintendos, Xbox) and smaller tables with games embedded beneath the glass. There are bar snacks, but really, you’re here to school your mates at Tekken Tag Tournament. That’s what friends do, right?

My Neighbours The Dumplings
MNTD’s second spot is near Victoria Park. It’s walk-in only, it’s great for a casual meal, and you should only be thinking about the dumplings.

The rooftop bar in Peckham’s Bussey Building is a great place to get a drink with friends and watch the sunset. There’s a rooftop cinema next door.
At Trailer Happiness you’ll find tiki vibes, rum-heavy cocktails, and lots of people starting (and ending) a rowdy night out in Notting Hill.
Flight Club is a darts-themed bar, and it’s basically the hipster upgrade to playing darts in a pub
Suggested by our writers
The best parties involve drinks, pizza, and tunes. Crate Brewery in Hackney Wick has all three, and tons of space to sit by the canal on a nice day.
