This late-night Brixton venue runs the programming gamut from roots reggae (a speciality) to blues, ska, jazz-funk, battle rap, gypsy swing, African high-life and flamenco rock, but music with a global, indigenous base has a reliably high profile.
Hootananny Brixton brings the festival vibes to London in an enormous Victorian award winning pub music venue with the best bands. 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 3 pool tables, pop up food: mouth watering tacos, jerk chicken and oven fired pizza and a new cocktail bar. Renowned for live hiphop, 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. Live Comedy on Fridays, with Burlesque dancers as well as 3 live bands and DJs kicks the weekend off in style. 3 bands of Dancehall, electro rock and pop with fat hooks and bumping soundsysems and DJs continue the weekend on Saturday night, with our global roots world music on Sunday evening. Live music 5 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.
What's on at Hootananny
Hip hop, World
'Tantz' is the Yiddish word for 'dance', so it makes sense that this Leeds ensemble bust out some seriously groovy klezmer vibes.
