The view is truly break taking and the underground feeling entrance to the carpark is cool. We had negronis and watched the sunset as a steel drum band played David Bowie covers.

Newly reopened for another summer, Frank’s Café (actually a bar that also does food) is the sort of open-air venue that a competitive, cosmopolitan city as London should aspire to.
However, it comes with some caveats. The already notorious queues seemed to be worse than ever, even on hot midweek nights - if you time it wrong you might wait fifteen minutes just to buy a drink; ten minutes to hover for a table, and then another ten minutes queuing at the separate food queue.
The bar has a choice of Meantime beers on tap, and there's a separate cocktail bar too. The food counter this year is serving a vegan platter, mackerel pate on rye bread, buffalo chicken wings, paprika and pamesan corn, jerk chicken with potato salad, barbecue pork bulgogi, Peckham pastrami and house slaw – in other words, a decent selection of modish fast food, most of these dishes costing in the £4-£9 range.
But for those that like a lively scene, there’s a sea of sweaty twentysomethings to hang out with. The clientele seems much younger, more homogenous and consequently less interesting than in previous years – though the panoramic rooftop view is still worth the journey around the back of the cinema multiplex and up all those smelly stairs.

If you want a low-key, chilled vibe with friends, good prices and great drinks...stop by!!! And security are mad cool too!!
Solution: go to one of the Supper Clubs being hosted at Franks on Tuesdays throughout August and September: http://eatpeckham.com/supper%20clubs/eatpeckhamfrank'.html Great views, no crowds.
I went here on a rainy day, loads to see and good atmosphere. Food a little pricey but did look delicious.
Been there in the rain and the wind and seen rainbows and storm clouds - whatever the weather the buzz is great, the food not bad and just an insane night out. You have to walk through the multi-storey car park, but on the way you're treated to an avant garde art exhibition! Mad but marvellous! And the views are unique.
