Tucked underneath a vast Victorian railway arch and surrounded by Brixton's vibrant market, this venue combines urban grit with Spanish flair. Its three main areas offer a relaxed atmosphere—from the grungy front bar with brown leather banquettes, oak-wood table, and dim lighting; the lavish central area; to the laid-back cocktail lounge in the back populated with mismatched furniture. Premium beers, spirits and 'world tapas' are served, along with a sophisticated cocktail list (think White Cosmopolitan and Orange Blossom Martini). During the week this low-key hang-out holds evening events—for example, on Tuesdays, Backgammon Club welcomes chess, droughts & snakes & ladders players. Weekends are more upbeat, with regular sets from live musicians and DJs playing laid-back soul and funk.
