A New York-style bar in Brixton from the Soho House group.
Please note, Fox Bar is now closed. Time Out London Editors.
Fox Bar – a cool cocktail spot attached to the new Brixton branch of Chicken Shop – is somewhat elusive. I was surprised to find it in what appeared to be an apartment complex, its entrance well hidden from the street. Descending one floor, we entered to find the noise of merry punters in a narrow, darkened room; not, thank god, someone’s private house party.
This is a new venture from the Soho House group, but the crowd were young, cool Brixtonites rather than jaded media types. A couple of large groups drifted in and out for foosball tournaments (there’s a table by the entrance), but the room was mostly made up of couples and post-dinner drinkers, appreciating the low lighting and New York apartment aesthetic.
Drinks-wise, theirs is a curated cocktail menu to get excited about, with just eight options, mostly using dark spirits, all priced at £8. My friend’s southside collins was an enjoyable gin-based drink, lifted with mint, lime and cucumber. I was jealous – I’d tried an on-tap Boulevardier, which was a little off-balance. Either way, this is a neat little concept from a foxy little bar – and a destination in its own right if you factor in some chicken wings from the menu next door.
