In the heart of Brixton just off Electric Avenue sits Seven at Brixton. A cocktail, pintxos and tapas bar decked out with art.
During the day it has a very laid back relaxed atmosphere with loads of board games such as Guess Who? and Connect 4, which can become quite difficult to play after a few cocktails. In the evening as it gets busier, the atmosphere really gets going but with five rooms all decorated differently with guest artists’ work (which is available to buy) there is more than enough space to accommodate everyone.
They offer a great selection of finger food which is ideal for sharing on a date. The cocktails were brilliant, especially the Cucumber & Elderflower Martini, Strawberry and Balsamic daiquiri, French Martini and our personal favourite The Guns of Brixton which arrived in an orange medical bottle with a stopper. In the bottle was a potion of Bourbon, Cointreau and smoke. We were told to leave the smoke to infuse with the liquid for a minute or two then pour into the chemistry beaker with ice and an orange peel. LDG does not however recommend the Pina Colada as it tasted a bit nasty (maybe a one off) but that doesn’t really matter as the awesomeness of the rest of the cocktails outweighed this minor point and they are only £5 a piece OMG!!!
Having been to Seven at Brixton a few times on both day and evening outings. We can honestly say this is a great place to come for a date. Most of the time we have ended up here during the day after hitting up some brunch in the trendy Brixton village. It’s also a handy starting point in the evening before walking down to the Hootananny or Mango Landing. Delicious food and cocktails, good music, and a relaxed atmosphere and vibe all combine for a great time.
Seven at Brixton is located inside Brixton Market Row two doors down from the delicious Franco Manca’s. Opening times are a bit funny due to the bar being within a covered market so check before you go.
