SW9 Bar Café

After the closure of legendary gay superclub the Fridge and the seedy Substation, SW9 is the last gay(ish) stronghold in Brixton. Though hidden down a back alley, this gay-friendly café-bar is far from sleazy. On the contrary, it has a trendy vibe, with gastropubby fare and a unisex bathroom – how Ally McBeal.

love this place. the food is delicious, nice outdoor area too. good weekend place to chill out in the day, as well as eves.


Really rude bar staff who wouldn't let us finish a glass of wine before demanding that we pay up immediately. Nasty overpriced house wine. Avoid at all costs!


terrible bar, packed with too many tables, rubbish bar staff who are useless, really bad service, dreadful wine. Dont go....
