Former cocktail pop-up goes permanent in Peckham Rye.

Having impressed Peckhamites with its wacky Christmas pop-up, Batch bar has now settled in for the long run among the coffee shops and brunch spots of Peckham Rye. It’s easy to miss this little cocktail bar, but if you do happen to stumble across it, you’ll step into a stunning – albeit slightly rough around the edges – indoor oasis of flowers and foliage.

Unfortunately, it went somewhat downhill from there. Since the bar has partnered with drinks consultancy Twist London, we expected the cocktails to be the stars of the show. The menu impressed, but after being given recommendations on which drinks to order, we were then informed that both our choices weren’t ready to be served. Apparently their ingredients needed time to ‘brew’, but this was at 8pm on a Saturday – peak drinking time. Not ideal. The cocktails we did end up with lacked flavour, and the complimentary pitta bread from a neighbouring pizza joint was stale and tasteless. Luckily, there’s beer from Peckham’s Brick Brewery and a decent wine list to fall back on, and you can order your Deliveroo to the bar should you get hungry.

Batch is a pretty place for a drink, and it certainly beats eating your Saturday night takeaway on the sofa, but maybe don’t visit for the cocktails – or, in our case, lack thereof.

I almost don't want to write this as I don't want other people to know about it. Well crafted cocktails with reasonable pricing for London in a great space with friendly staff. So much of it is right, they deserve credit for it.

Great little spot! I can't believe how awesome all the artwork is. And the drinks are all on point. Get down before the holidays are over!

Hidden behind an old shop front is a destination cocktail bar with premier league drinks menu. The walls are covered with cool murals of cartoon monsters who give their names to the cocktails on the list. Staff are really friendly and welcoming - also featuring some very delicious organic wines served on draft.

What I like about this new bar is the real feel of community, it fits right into the Peckham landscape. The cocktails are great and despite not having a kitchen, they're working closely with local businesses to cater in. The staff are super friendly and are really trying to provide that remarkable experience to build up their customer base - and free Prosecco on arrival will do that nicely.
