Come one come all
A free spirited Free House, with a well curated selection of beers, wines and cocktails, that are as refreshing after work as they are at 2am!!
First established as the Cock Tavern, our Georgian era pub was transformed into a tiki bar in 2003 and known as the London South Pacific bar until we took over in 2018. Respectful of the Cock's colourful past, we brought back the original name and reworked the Tiki interior with the Georgian legacy to create our very own Georgian Tiki style.
From Rhubarb Gin Spritz to Smoked Cherry Negroni, our list of over a dozen includes Cosmopolitans, Margaritas, and Classic, Dirty or Expresso Martinis, as well as our very own Cock Punch.
Outside our usual opening hours we host private events and parties. We can do intimate as well as large groups (up to 230) with our 3 seating areas, great sound system, and disco ball dance floor.
We have kitchen onsite and can offer delicious event catering.
Farika is famous for her legendary watering holes scattered throughout London since the 90s, and most recently the adored and much missed Nelson’s Head by Columbia road flower market.
In December 2017 Farika and her team Patrick Black and Leean James packed up their juke box and moved a few stops down the Northern line to Kennington, to bring new life to the 200 year old Cock Tavern.
Together with their magic team of genuinely lovely and super friendly bar staff, headed up by Jesse Charlebois, guests can expect a warm welcome and great service.
We stand for friendship and inclusivity.
“Declaring herself ‘over’ Shoreditch, Farika – one-time landlady of the cult E2 pub that is now Nelsons Head – has set up camp in Kennington.
And very camp it is.
Her new pub, Georgian in origin but occupying the former premises of Hawaiian-style tiki bar South London Pacific, resembles a film set of a sacrificial temple. Here a party-loving pansexual posse cavorts amid the totem poles to a mix of kinky beats, trash pop and loony tunes until as late as 3am.
In the airy main bar, all quaint and quirky artworks nailed to the ceiling, well-priced Slings, Sours, Manhattans, Martinis, and Negronis go down a treat. Alternatives range from craft brews and lad lagers to classy French crus and Bolly among the bubbles.”
