What they say:
Staying true to the pintxo style well encourage our guests to help themselves to our pintxo (skewered) bites and pay once theyve had their fill! The variety of pintxos and tapas are based on our culinary experiences in Spain and use the best of Brixton markets veg and meats. Weve got a great supplier for our Spanish ingredients and will have sharing plates available, our guests will be able to choose whatever variation they please. Pimiento del padron, gambas cocidas, selection of cured, semi-cured and blue cheeses, jamon Serrano from the leg to name but a few!
Our cocktails are a mixture of classics as well our personal takes on the said classics, a great dirty martini with SW4 Gin or Wyborowa vodka, Old fashioned, vanilla julep, bramble with a side of blueberry muffin to name but a few. Weve also devised our own electric avenue- youll have to come down for the recipe! Weve had fun with our combinations and, as with all of out choices, placed a very big importance in quality of ingredients and combination- our bloody Mary a mix of tomato bloodshot vodka and horseradish vodka from Sputnik.
Wine and beer are decisions weve not taken lightly either- after numerous tastings sessions we feel as though we have a fantastic range of high quality wines all available by the glass and at a great price. Campo Nuevo Tempranillo gives us a seasonally great red, as does the higher end Marques de Riscal white, the only non-Rioja that the famous bodegas produces. Our Spanish beers are the hard to track down Cruzcampo, relatively unknown Alhambra Negra and Reserva, and a very special treat Estrella Inedit, which is a highly specialised beer invented by Ferran Adria of El Bulli and is made to compliment food types.
Well be providing food and drink in the day time too with coffees, croissants and traditional European breakfast pastries. Into lunch weve got warm spanish inspired sandwiches and focaccias, jamon serrano, an array of cheeses and our sharing dishes. Weve also got fresh fruit smoothies and home made lemonade.
What we say:
Seven at Brixton sounds like my kind of bar! I love that the guys behind this have been putting so much effort in to socialising with people and keeping them up to date online through Twitter (they already have over 400 followers), Facebook and their blog. It's clear that Seven will be a really unique and gorgeous venue with lots of passion behind it.
Seven at Brixton's food looks like it will be some of the best in the area and I think using locally sourced produce is such a good idea and will have people queueing at the door for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Their quirky cocktails with a twist sound delicious (I'm particularly looking forward to the Bramble with a side of blueberry muffin!). They have an extensive wine list and lots of rare beers so there's something for all tastes.
What I think makes Seven at Brixton particularly special is there upstairs rooms which will be leased out to local artists, giving them a space to create extraordinary artwork, all for free!
