Neighbourhood eatery Kudu has rapidly become one of Peckham’s greatest restaurants.
And their follow-up cocktail bar Smokey Kudu, a little further down the road by Queen’s Road station, is equally popular. It’s a surprisingly glamorous space considering it’s tucked into a railway arch, with a dozen South African inspired cocktails to sip beneath a huge chandelier.
So – curious to know where they go from here?
Well, the natural next step is to open a private dining room that also functions as a gallery during the daytime, and acts as a boutique selling furniture, paintings, sculptures, photos and posters, too. It’s almost a cliche at this point. So that’s what they did. Here they’ll serve you the same brilliant South African-inspired cuisine on a banqueting table laid with candles and flowers – and, of course, it’s only a few yards away from Smokey Kudu, too.
NOTE: Curious Kudu is open Wed-Sun – the gallery is open in the afternoon and is free to visit. All works are for sale. The private dining seats up to 14 and the set menu is £55/65pp (4/5 courses). The minimum spend is £400, payable as a deposit. You can find out more, and make an enquiry, at their website right HERE.
