Pop Brixton is community initiative in the heart of Brixton, run in partnership with Lambeth Council, showcasing a selection of young businesses (with plenty of restaurants).
Developed in reaction to high street brands dominating storefronts across London, Pop Brixton covers over 1,400 sq m and features a selection of traders – all of which are independent, and a majority of which are local. Operating out of an eclectic jumble of shipping containers, the site is home to serveral bars and street food stalls as well as a number of permanent restaurants, including the highly rated Smoke and Salt. There’s also a large greenhouse space for communal dining. Alongside all this there's a changing schedule of music and entertainment events.
Pop Brixton is currently open all year round, with an open-air look in the summer, and weather-proofing to keep visitors warm and dry during the winter. Entrance is free but, of course, the food and drink isn't.
