Pop Brixton

Lunch Offer £6.50

Pop Brixton is more than just your standard bar, it's a social hub set across a bustling space, repurposing shipping containers to create a range of bars, restaurants and shops. You'll find plenty of classic and signature cocktails up for grabs here, to be enjoyed in their sunny outdoor area while listening to live music, or indoors, looking out over the vibrant area below. You can pair your concoctions with a vast range of street food, including cuisines like Thai, Japanese, Greek and many more.

Barrio Brixton

Lips Don't Lie - Throwback Karaoke and 3 other offers

How can you talk about fun Brixton cocktail bars without giving a mention to Barrio? Taking the energy and colour from Latin America, they've got a food menu serving up Peruvian treats and a drinks menu delivering loads of signature blends made of mescal, pisco, rum and tequila. DJs bring the music until 2am on weekends too, meaning you can party on as you sip on their wonderful mixed drinks.

Il Maremmano

Located on Tulse Hill, Il Maremmano is an apericena bar serving up regional delicacies from the Maremma area in Tuscany. Think small plates and cocktails in the afternoon, or a glass of Tuscan wine from a hand-picked, independent producer, with dishes including crostoni, pizzette and sharing boards of meats or cheeses. As for the interiors, expect traditional Italian vibes with terracotta walls and posters dotted around the room.

The Laundry

Located close to the station, The Laundry is a relaxed neighbourhood bar specialising in wine and cocktails. The interiors are inspired by the Edwardian history of the building, think quirky tiled floors, antique decor and vintage furnishings. Sip on a cucumber margarita or a Cherry bramble here, while tucking into small plates of spicy meatballs, crispy pork spring rolls or burrata with melon. Even better? You can nab £7 cocktails between 5 and 7pm on weekdays.
