Eckovision, Brixton

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

E17 newcomer for the fledgling cocktail bar chain.

While the flagship Brixton arches bar slumbers in (supposedly temporary) closure, Ekcovision – the cocktail bar arm of Antic London – lays down east London roots with this Walthamstow location. Decorated with geometric wallpaper and shelves filled with vintage radios, it certainly looks the part. All the requisite craft beers are to be found on tap, but it’s the house cocktails you should dutifully peruse. A Suffering Bastard was an eye-wateringly sharp concoction of white rum, curacao and lime; a Pull a MOOny made for a crisp blend of Black Cow Vodka, lemon, ginger and prosecco. Fans of Walthamstow’s most famous musical export should look no further than a Stay Another Day, which brings together a hoppy Joker lager with a raisin-infused whisky chaser clipped to the side of the glass.

It wasn’t quite the thumping Saturday night spot it should have been, however. Perhaps having the converted cinema Mirth, Marvel & Maud next door is spreading E17’s clientele a little thin. But it’s a welcome addition to Hoe Street nonetheless, and with another branch soon to open in Leytonstone, Ekcovision’s eastward march looks set to continue.

I have to give Ekcovision 5 stars! It is a classy venue, the drinks are interesting and plenty-some! If you dont know what you fancy, tell the barman what you like and he will create a cocktail/mocktail especially for you. The bar staff are incredibly friendly! Ekcovision now have DJs and live jazz on the first Thursday of the month which is great and FREE! 

Terrible service and rude staff. This was one of the worst places I've been to in E17. All style and no substance.


Over priced and out of place this bar is probably one of the not so great things to come out of the gentrification of good old stow. Not only are there 2 landmark pubs right next door but if mirth is trying too hard to be cool, then this place is trying to be a lord amongst the pigs. Maybe if the cocktails were more appealing then there may be a reason pop in for a quick one but I wouldn’t bother with all of the choice within a 5 minute walk.
