Low lit and located under a bridge, Smokey Kudu is a moody bar. In another era you’d come here to investigate the odd disappearance of a rich heiresses’ goldfish, all the while chain-smoking and ordering things like a ‘Dark & Smokey’ whilst telling the bartender that yes, that did also happen to be your nickname. It’s part of the South African-influenced Kudu Collective restaurant and bar mini Peckham empire, so know that the snacks are going to be worth interrogating as well.
