Serving some of South London's most hedonistic cocktails, Purl is a prohibition-style pop-up bar at The Bedford gastro pub in Balham. Dating back to 1830, the pub is a cornerstone of the community set over 3 floors, boasting 5 bars, and a jam-packed events programme. <br/><br/>Heady, playful mixes are served in a plethora of china cups and apothecary-style bottles, with guests also able to enjoy live music sessions.
