Having been a firm favourite on our ‘things we did last summer list’, Belinha and her pup pals Lilliput and Morri went to check it out for Bussey’s winter debut. Here’s what they found and why we think the dog-friendly Bussey Rooftop Bar is definitely worth a visit (or two) this winter…

#1. Dogs Are Treated Like VIP(up)’s

Our top of the list reason to go, has to be that dogs are not only allowed but they are truly welcomed and treated like VIP(up)’s.

#2. Lights, Camera, Dogs…

The rooftop bar has not only gained an actual roof for winter, but it’s also gained enough glowing lights to power half of Peckham and is oh so pretty! A slight exaggeration on the power part, but definitely not on the oh so pretty part. Of course this makes for some perfect pup photos particularly in front of the fabulous ‘Hello Babes’ neon sign…or ‘Hell Babes’ if the DJ happens to stand in the right spot…

#3. Rockadollar Dogs Are Rockin’ the Menu

We’re not talking actual dogs here but rather the posh Rockadollar Dogs food concession run by Richard Sandiford (also head chef at Hawksmoor Knightsbridge). For meat eaters, the Rare Breed 21-day aged steak burger is apparently a must, and for vegetarians and vegans the Masala mushroom chestnut and cashew burger or vegan hot dogs are the top menu choices.

And Finally…

We couldn’t not mention the views…winter or summer this one doesn’t change. As the bar is now covered, you can see less of the views than in summer but that doesn’t change the fact that they are spectacular. For us however, the indoor view (with dogs) is just pawfect.
