1. John the unicorn
Open until 1AM Friday and Saturday
Situated slap bang in the middle of Rye lane - the mystically named pub-cum-bar stays open that little bit later, until 1am on the weekend. Serving up real ales, craft beers and tasty cocktails, try the Elderflower Gimlett! Split across two floors John the Unicorn is the perfect place to stretch out your afternoon boozing that little bit longer. Think casual, laid back, busy.

2.The four quarters
Open until 2.00AM Friday and Saturday
The former butchers shop is now a late night retro arcade bar. Four Quarters on Rye Lane is a popular bar that hosts a room full of old school arcade machines and even has a confession box- a speakeasy style bar downstairs serving cocktails. This is a no frills fun dive in Peckham. If your up for boozing until the early hours whilst playing Pac Man then this is the place to be.

3.Prince of Peckham
Open until 2.30AM Friday and Saturday
Prince of Peckham launched earlier this year replacing the Clayton Arms with a fresh new refurb and the promise of live music and events nights which it has lived up to. Every Friday and Saturday the Prince of Peckham has a variety of Dj's banging out the tunes until 2.30am -from 80's electro to hip hop classics and everything in between. Def the place for a boogie before bed (/kebab).
