Cattivo

Description

Located on Brixton's bustling Ferndale Road, this charming cocktail bar and restaurant is a hidden gem amongst the area's many bars. Cattivo sits just opposite its sister bar, Canova Hall, and provides the same brilliant bottomless brunch experience at weekends with the added bonus of DJs from 1pm every Saturday.  The party carries on into the early hours with a late night license till 2am at weekends.  At street level and, below ground, in the cocktail club there are lot of different size spaces for parties and private hire.  Cattivo can cater for parties up to 200 people in the cocktail club and the whole venue is available for private hire with a capacity of 400.  

Food is all homemade and rooted in Italy, from pastas, ragus and gnocchi to arancini, fricco and their bomboloni (Italian doughnuts) with salted caramel buttercream.  The bar also boasts a decadent array of cocktails, perfect for sipping on. They also host Gin Blending masterclasses and Cocktail Masterclasses, using the small batch gin that they make on site from Victor, their still. There's more to this Brixton bar than meets the eye.
