The LP Bar

New Cross might not immediately conjure up jetset visions, but that hasn’t stopped the LP Bar from being kitted out like a continental airliner, with aeroplane seats, a departure-board menu and all kinds of aeronautical-grade aluminium bits and bobs. Although they draw the line at air hostess costumes, all this might be a bit tedious, if the staff weren’t so welcoming and the cocktails so imaginative, well-realised and delicious.

The SE Skyline represents for the dirty south with Campari, bourbon and bitters, while the Houston, a heady mix of rye whiskey, Lillet Blanc and honey syrup suggests mirrored Aviators, medallions and the Mile High Club. It’s fun, it’s nice, it’s got personality: LP is a proper destination.

If you are looking for a mildly pretentious spot away from the rabble of Goldsmiths, LP Bar is the place. With it's oddly thrown together plane theme, where it takes you about 10mins to get to the toilet as it was a plane door and is like entering the temple of doom, its good for maybe a drink or two in a quiet spot (although if you are looking for coke as a mixer you are looking the wrong place my friends!). A mate of my recently ordered a chocolate rum "cocktail" but what she received was a shot of rum and some chocolate bits... deconstructed maybe, I dunno. But the staff were friendly and looked after us well.

Look beyond the kitschy airline theme: the drinks are top-notch, the staff super-nice and there's a happy hour every day till 8pm

Love the Come Fly with Us decor, great cocktails and there's always something pretty good playing on the sound system. They also have a weekly Thurs vinyl night & spirit tasting evenings.
