Emerging from a lift named ‘heaven’ onto the sunset-lit seventh-floor of Peckham’s multi-storey car park of a summer evening is one of my – not just highlights of the summer; not just highlights of southeast London; but – all-time top London moments. I lived in Madrid and such discoveries are easier to come by there, as its scale is perfect: big enough to hold secrets yet not so big that any secret seems irrelevant when compared to the great things that everybody knows about. The rich offering and the vastness of our city mean that for something to be considered as a fantastic little find, it must be really special. When it first opened the phenomenon which is Frank’s Campari Bar received write-ups in press as far flung as the New York Times. It’s back for three months each English summer from late June – go discover. / Delaina Haslam
