Goodbye Brixton Beach, hello weird festive western-style bar. The ‘South Pole Saloon’ returns for the winter with woodland lodges, interactive theatre and themed private rooms. This year rooftop nights will be hosted by Cirque du Soul and For the Love of Garage. And the food doesn’t look half bad either: mac and cheese masters Mac to the Future and locals Fancy Funkin Chicken are both on the bill.

Had an amazing time over the weekend. Was truly unique and didn't disappoint. Food and music as well as immersive performances all really good. Worth a visit!

We went on Saturday night and saw DJ Zinc as a surprise guest. The dancers and immersive stuff was fun and not overwhelming. Food was ace we had a Crust Conductor Pizza. Would recommend 


I'm not sure who sent the memo out that the theme for winter in London was Ski lodges but apparently they did.

The South Pole saloon has a really cool layout for day or night events. The combination of private tables as well full on private lodges makes it a great place for a night out. There is a dancefloor and plenty of space just to chill out too.


The South Pole Saloon is a great way to have a drink and dance.

Also whilst there grab a selfie or two with the Sweet Candy Cane girls, Ice King and the Frozen Ice Queen of Brixton.

I love the private Candy Cane Cabins and the three VIP Winter themed lodges which you can hire.  So you and your elves, pixies, angels or whomever you may hang with can party the night away in private.

There are three bars in total serving plenty of festive drinks from cocktails to beers. One of the bars purely is dedicated for Espresso Martini’s which are delicious.

If you are looking for something to eat then you have plenty of choice from Mac to the Future (for cheese lovers), Fancy Funkin Chicken (for chicken lovers), Vudu Food (for people who love spicy food) and finally The Lambassadors (for lamb lovers). I personally always go for Mac to the Future food as I love cheese and there macaroni and toasties are the best.  

For all you dancers out there you won’t be disappointed as there are two main dance areas with DJ’s and live music being played.  Either area will certainly get you up and moving your feet and hips like a hyper Rudolph or smooth slow moving Santa Claus.

Whatever you decide to do on the night at this festive venue you will certainly get a great vibe and with so much food and drink your halos will surely come crashing off your heads and wicked smiles will appear on your face like a naughty pixie.  So escape the busy streets of London and get your wings on as it is time to get your party shoes on for a festive time.


This place is just weird! Through a discreet old western doorway there is a bar and stage where they put on weird shows. Further up there is another area which is covered which has the food and drink stalls. Food is good especially the pizza from Crust Conductor and the sticky toffee pudding from Pastry Girls (so so indulgent). There is also lots of mulled wine including the Jagarmeister mulled wine which is amazing! There is also a whisky bar which serves pricey cocktails. 
However I think a fiver is too expensive to charge to get in when the entertainment is average and you have to pay a decent amount for food. Especially when the weather is Rubbish. Rain honestly ruins it so my tip would be to not book until you know the weather - or don't go at all as the 3* rating is for the yummy food only which you can get at their pop ups!


Swung by the saloon during the festive period. 

Great atmosphere, plenty of young peeps getting their brooklyn beer and mulled wine on. Around four places to get street food too - pizza seemed a crowd-favourite.

Dance area inside the main lodge seemed fun - admittedly we arrived around 8pm, which was perhaps a bit early to get pumping. 

For the £3 entry after 8pm, would suggest swinging by Pop Brixton round the corner first, and then rocking up here later in the evening.

Headed to South Pole saloon on Saturday with some friends to celebrate christmas. Started off with some incredible street food, only then for the night to be kicked off by a hillarious drag act and some great music. PBR Streetgang made an appearance apparently?! May have to celebrate xmas one more time down in brixton!

Just what Brixton needed, another place to eat streetfood and drink cocktails outdoors. Am sure it might be a bit livelier at night but during the day it felt pretty desolate. A bit like the grown up equivalent of those folorn winter wonderlands that parents take disappointed kids to. Also the cocktail bar seemed to be a bit confused by the prospect of cocktails. Pop Brixton around the corner is way better, with superior stalls and a more fun atmosphere. 

Great fun, one of the best pop up i've ever been to and the impressive performances add a nice touch

Not sure why we had to pay £3 to get in. Very disappointing and incredibly contrived, could go on for longer........Very good chicken burger though.
