Shrub and Shutter

211 user reviews 5

One of the best cocktail bars in Brixton, Shrub and Shutter isn't the location to hit if you're looking for something plain and simple. Their unique roster of botanical drinks and ingredients includes pine-infused gin, prickly pear soda and cornflake milk, so you can expect something a little more adventurous.

Located on Coldharbour Lane, this rum-slinging hangout is promising everything from Jamaican-style tapas and bottomless brunch to crafty cocktails. Tuck into jerk cauliflower and avocado on toast with happy hour drinks at one of Brixton's best restaurant-bars.

Trinity Arms

Home to one of the coolest gardens in Brixton, Trinity Arms is a gorgeous pub just off Acre Lane. The bustling spot fronts a great selection of craft beers, fine wines and delicious food, and the aforementioned outdoor space even comes with a cosy firepit.

Market House

A playground for Brixton's movers and shakers, this comfy boozer boasts two floors of bars, DJs and dancing to an eclectic mix of music. Decked out in dark finishes and bursting with frat party vibes, Market House quite literally feels like one big house party.

This quirky Brixton beach bar is the place to go if you're looking for top DJs and an epic atmosphere. A cool and casual suntrap by day, it's a top location for chilled pints with pals. However, when the sun goes down you'll find the music blasting and the cocktails flowing.
