One of South London's Best Bars Is Getting A Sequel

Good news for anyone who lives south of the river, and likes both cocktails & cool portmanteau names: Funkidory is getting a sibling, Mama Funki.

The excellent Peckham bar had the enviable distinction of combining both a casual, neighbourhood-y feel with a high-tone, serious approach to their drinks. It managed to be both a destination bar, and an easygoing drop-in. And now it’s coming to Camberwell.

You’ll find Mama Funki below the newfangled Forza Win spot on Camberwell Church Street, and it’s going to be considerably larger than its sibling. In fact, there’ll be enough room for the team to have their own lab space, for them to develop some truly cutting-edge ways of getting everyone hammered. It’s also going to allow them to hold the occasional live gig & DJ night too.

And, given that they have all that space, it would be strange if they decided not to include some of their other more uncommon offerings too, including their bottled cocktails, natural wines (available to open there and then if you choose, or take home) and vinyl store…

…for the record.


NOTE: Mama Funki is set to open sometime in early 2023. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can keep an eye on their website right here.
