Home to one of the coolest gardens in Brixton, Trinity Arms is a gorgeous pub just off Acre Lane. The bustling spot fronts a great selection of craft beers, fine wines and delicious food, and the aforementioned outdoor space even comes with a cosy firepit.

Friendship Adventure Brewery and Taproom in Brixton is a fantastic spot for casual after-work or pre-dinner drinks. Found down Coldharbour Lane, this place has live music and pours delicious house beers that have been brewed on-site, as well as seltzers and wines.

Shrub and Shutter

One of the best cocktail bars in Brixton, Shrub and Shutter isn't the location to hit if you're looking for something plain and simple. Their unique roster of botanical drinks and ingredients includes pine-infused gin, prickly pear soda and cornflake milk, so you can expect something a little more adventurous.

This quirky Brixton beach bar is the place to go if you're looking for top DJs and an epic atmosphere. A cool and casual suntrap by day, it's a top location for chilled pints with pals. However, when the sun goes down you'll find the music blasting and the cocktails flowing.
