Frank's CafeOn the 10th floor of the disused Peckham Multi-Story Car Park this summer you'll find parked cars replaced with drinkers enjoying cocktails and crab on toast at Frank's Cafe and Campari Bar. This temporary rooftop bar is back following years of success - it first opened in 2008 with over 30,000 people visiting in the three months it was open. Frank's is a winning combination of drinking, eating, art and one of the best views in London. It's part of the Bold Tendencies sculpture project initiated and run by Hannah Barry Gallery. The structure of the makeshift cafe / bar has been designed by Practice Architecture (Paloma Gormley - daughter of Antony Gormley - and Lettice Drake), and was set up by bartender Frank Boxer (who worked at the Anchor and Hope and set up the Italo Deli in Vauxhall) with chef Michael Davies. The result is a total transformation of a previously unlovely concrete car park - just add Campari cocktails.
