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 over 50 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 four bars and 16 street food stalls and sit-down restaurants, including the highly rated Indian joint Kricket. 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.
Venue says: “Pop Brixton's second birthday is coming up! Don't miss the massive weekend of celebrations from June 2-4. See our website for details.”
