Its open windows facing the Front Line Brixton Ltd grocery store across Atlantic Road, the Lounge offers a relaxed retreat amid buzzy Brixtonia.

By day it deals mainly in food, serving own-made burgers, all-day breakfasts, toasted panini and the like, along with a simple, inexpensive kids’ menu. Come the evening, things shift up a gear, with fried plantain, salt-fish fritters and spicy chicken wings among the small plates, plus sharing platters, grills and salads.

By then drinks will have come to the fore, including cocktails (£5-£6.50), such as the Loungin’ Beauty of brandy, red vermouth and ruby port.

The entertainment schedule is more varied, incorporating monthly Brixton-themed film screenings, occasional music sessions and rotating exhibitions.

So a friend and I come the Lounge for pre concert drinks, the atmosphere was really nice and laid back. Great place for a catch up or a nice relaxed date! Great cocktails and they also do happy hour!

Great place for food and drinks if you want to be able to have a conversation at the same time! Laidback atmosphere, friendly staff.


The food is really good quality I would recommend this place as prob one of the best places to eat in Brixton


Finding somewhere peaceful for a quiet catch up/lunch time drinks in Brixton can be awfully troublesome, but this place really fits the bill. Drinks are reasonably priced, and I've never had trouble finding a table. You can also get some by the large front windows and watch the world go by!

I can't comment on the food as have only ever been there for the liquid type of lunch, but it does look tasty!

You can also pre-reserve areas, which makes it a great option for parties/gatherings.

The quiet and friendly atmosphere makes Lounge a perfect place for a lunch catch up with friends. We shared the plantain and guacamole and pitta and dips selection - all were delicious and well priced. Would definitely recommend paying this place a visit if you're looking for an alternative to the more hectic Brixton Village options.

The jerk chicken salad is amazing! Prices are cheap and the atmosphere and service is always lovely.


Booked an area at Lounge for my birthday. The staff couldn't have been more helpful - really attentive service and great food. It's a nice intimate size too and not packed out at the weekends.
