Great nights out in Brixton
Discover the best places to go drinking in Brixton from gastropubs to cocktail bars Brixton has established a reputation as a great place to enjoy a drink. From the affordable cocktails and buzzy vibe at Lounge to the guest ales and cosy atmosphere at the Prince Regent, take a look at Brixton's best boozers.Think we've missed out one of Brixton's finest watering holes? Let us know in the comments box below. Florence That the people behind the light, modern Florence care about beer is obvious from the phenomenal range on offer and the helpful tasting notes on all the pumps. In fact, as the copper vats just beyond the main bar show, they care about it enough to brew their own, and their fruity Dam Tasty Beaver and Bonobo beers are in no way overshadowed by the competition at the bar (Meantime Pale Ale, Duvel Green). A regularly updated menu (slow-roast lamb, white bean chilli and the like) is well matched by an imaginative wine list. Past the vats, a roomy conservatory with a table football table and an open kitchen leads to a capacious decked terrace and a separate children’s and garden room. Popular with all ages, and deservedly so. White Horse The White Horse attracts an adult, professional but as-yet-unnested clientele happy to enjoy the generous opening hours. It’s all slightly clubby yet laid-back: the dangling disco balls are embellished with sunflower petals, there are big candles and flowers on each table, the day’s papers rest on the bar
Whether you're looking for a pub with a late licence or a super club where you can dance the night away, Brixton's roster of great clubs ensures that the party needn't end early. Begin your evening at London's first ever DJ bar, Dogstar on Coldharbour Lane, before moving on to the 600 capacity Jamm nightclub with music ranging from hip-hop and R&B to hard house and trance.Think we've missed out one of Brixton's best clubs?

What's on in Brixton this week?
Lady Chastity's Reserve, Hackney
This marvellously silly immersive team puzzle (a sort of cross between an escape game and the 'Mumsy' challenge in 'The Crystal Maze') has already spooked and amused many a team at its original venue in Battersea, but will now be challenging the people of Hackney from a dark corner of the People's Park Tavern. It's from the Handmade Mysteries team that does this kind of thing at venues across London. They know what they're doing. Expect plenty of surreal slants to challenges that can be pretty, well, challenging, and don't be surprised to be surprised either - we're told the immersive elements can be pretty interesting. They promise to let you out - or help you out - if you get really stuck but still, it might be best to bring some brains and leave your dumbass friends out of it.
Venue says: “Venture through an hour of hilarious clue-solving as you and your team attempt to win Chastity's fabled aphrodisiac wine.”
