This Brixton live music venue and bar boasts a bit of a reputation for the diversity of its programme, with everything from roots and reggae to hip hop, underground Latin, European gypsy folk and ska. There are comedy nights, too.
In addition to the music and live events, the street food coming from the kitchen does pretty brisk business. Three outfits - El Chingo Mexican Grill, Alchino Pizzeria and Tony's - showcase their wares, so expect tacos, burritos and quesedillas; wood-fired pizzas; jerk chicken, ackee and saltfish and plenty of plantain from Tony's.
Hootananny shows many of the big football matches, as well as some other sports.
The atmosphere is great for dancing, with a packed area below the stage. Reviewers say time and again it is inclusive and friendly, with a gigantic beer garden (tented and warm in the winter), with three pool tables, pop up food (mouth-watering tacos, jerk chicken and oven fired pizza) and a new cocktail bar. Renowned for live hip hop, dubstep, folk, roots, reggae (a speciality), blues, ska, jazz-funk, battle rap, gypsy swing, African high-life and flamenco rock, party-goers come in their droves.
We also have live comedy on Fridays, with burlesque dancers and three live bands and DJs kicking off the weekend in style. Three bands of dancehall, electro rock and pop, with fat hooks and bumping sound systems, and DJs continuing the weekend on Saturday night, followed by our our global roots world music on Sunday evening.
With live music five nights a week, this pub is an award winning music pub, winning The Great British Pub Awards for Best Live Music Pub UK and The London Life Style Awards for Best Music Venue in London.
