Kudu spin-off launches in Peckham

Published 23 January 2020

Just opened for business is Smokey Kudu, the first spin-off from the popular Peckham restaurant Kudu. To compliment the main site, just a short walk away, is the cocktail bar, which is under the arches near Queens Road station. Smokey Kudu has 37 covers with a curved central bar where the drinks on offer – both boozy and non-alcoholic – will have nods to South Africa. Kudu and its menus are influenced by the country from which co-owner Patrick Williams comes. The bar manager is Jonas Stern, who has experience at Isabel, Pollen Street Social, Spring and Claridge’s Bar. The bar itself is dominated by a fabulous glass chandelier and the colour scheme is very much classic cocktail bar.

Williams and his life and work partner Amy Corbin have quickly become a fixture in the Peckham area in just two years – and they have plans for another spin-off, Little Kudu, a tapas and wine bar, later this spring.
