About SAMA Bankside

Award-winning SAMA Bankside is a new all day bar, restaurant, meetings and events space set over two floors with a separate private dining/meeting room.

A simple stroll up our cobbled slope and you'll feel like you're miles away from the city. Pop in for a drink or dinner, book a booth for after work drinks or a special celebration, play a game of beer pong or book our private room for a meeting.

A unique, spacious multi-use venue set over two floors in a vast railway arch besides Blackfriars Bridge, SAMA Bankside would not be out of place in Brooklyn or Berlin.



Our team at SAMA Bankside are here to put a touch of sparkle into your Christmas celebrations and it's never too early to book your Christmas party...

Whether you are looking for a champagne brunch, a Christmas lunch or dinner or a party with cocktails and canapés then SAMA Bankside has just the thing for you.

We have a number of options available and are happy to tailor-make a package to suit your exact requirements if preferred. 

With a variety of spaces from a table or an area to our private dining room, complete lower floor or hiring of the whole venue, the list is endless for your office Christmas Party.

Capacity: Maximum seated 170 over two floors, maximum standing 350 people over two floors.

Location: SAMA Bankside is easily accessible from Blackfriars, Southwark, Waterloo and London Bridge stations.
