A Brixton institution from back when Coldharbour Lane was somewhere people feared to go, Dogstar is a big, three-floor street-corner pub exuding the urban authenticity loved by clubbers. Earning the accolade of being London’s first ever DJ bar, Dogstar has managed to sustain a loyal following over the decades. The most recent refurbishment has left the interior looking like a cross between the Old Blue Last and Loungelover. The atmosphere can be intense, but it’s never less than vibrant. A top tip for first-timers is to get there early – not only will you be able to bag space at the pool table but you can also evade the door tax. Dogstar’s music policy is varied with everything from hip hop to drum ’n’ bass and funk. There are often comedy nights and the food from the Mexican restaurant is popular with locals.

I go here often after work on a friday. Always a great night out - good tunes and friendly people. Love it, highly recommended!
Mega fun night out in very lively Brixton, extremely tasty pizzas, cool staff and party atmosphere later on. Good range of drinks, resonable 'pub' prices!!!
