Its open windows facing the Front Line Brixton Ltd grocery store across Atlantic Road, the Lounge offers a relaxed retreat amid buzzy Brixtonia.

By day it deals mainly in food, serving own-made burgers, all-day breakfasts, toasted panini and the like, along with a simple, inexpensive kids’ menu. Come the evening, things shift up a gear, with fried plantain, salt-fish fritters and spicy chicken wings among the small plates, plus sharing platters, grills and salads.

By then drinks will have come to the fore, including cocktails (£5-£6.50), such as the Loungin’ Beauty of brandy, red vermouth and ruby port.

The entertainment schedule is more varied, incorporating monthly Brixton-themed film screenings, occasional music sessions and rotating exhibitions.

Booked an area at Lounge for my birthday. The staff couldn't have been more helpful - really attentive service and great food. It's a nice intimate size too and not packed out at the weekends.
