Up a secret Brixton staircase there’s something very exciting going on. Hidden far above Brixton Market an army of workmen are currently putting the finishing touches to London’s latest rooftop in a never-before-seen spot right in the heart of one of London’s coolest spots. From the people that brought us Pergola and The Prince, welcome to Lost In Brixton.
Lost In Brixton sits on the roof of the iconic Brixton Market, and it’s going to be one of the biggest openings of summer. So far we’ve only seen renders (check out the guy on the left, with the beard!) but it still looks pretty exciting.
Billing itself as “a concrete jungle with drinks, food from the market, and happy times” the vibes are straight out of Pergola on the Roof, with foliage twisting around the obligatory pergola structures and open to the elements (hopefully sun), while the cocktail menu is straight from Latin America. If you’re not content with the myriad of summer spritzers, botanicals, and curated cocktails then nearby Brixton Brewery will be pumping in their beer. But food is where the 440 cover venue comes into its own.
The clever bit is that punters can download an app which will magically (or perhaps digitally) order up food from traders within Brixton Village and Market Row, the ones that make Brixton such an incredible destination in the first place. And if they can pull that off, then it could be a game changer.
Either way, find our yourself and grab a free frozen pina colada into the deal. To celebrate the launch of Lost In Brixton, they’re offering up the cocktails for free to the first 1,000 bookings. Just follow them on @lostbrixton to find out more.
But even without the freebie pina colada, you’re almost guaranteed to end up in Lost In Brixton this summer. It’s up a freakin’ secret staircase for goodness sake!
Lost In Brixton opens its trapdoors on Thursday 1st August
