Venue says: "Hootananny has just won a Time Out Love London Award for best pub in Brixton. Come celebrate in our new cocktail bar."

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.

I 've visited Hootananny three times and had three brilliant nights. Okay, they have quite a diversity of music on here, with everything from reggae to hip hop but if you choose the right night with the right music you won't do better in this part of London. 4.5 stars


One of the best live music venues i have been to! Friendly staff and wicked vibes everytime
