Brixton is one of London’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. An eclectic clash of Caribbean culture, hipster vibes and good-old South London attitude.
There may be more pop ups and cocktail bars than a decade ago, but it will take a lot more than that to kill Brixton’s vibe.
It’s not difficult to work out why people love Brixton.
First of all, it’s just so unashamedly Brixton – standing in stark contrast to neighbouring areas like Clapham and Herne Hill, Brixton’s buzzy high street, markets and late-night bars feel like a breath of fresh air.
I spent a significant part of my early twenties living in a shitty Brixton flat with awesome flatmates… and have never been able to resist a cheeky jaunt to Brixton ever since.
It’s not all hazy memories though – like much of London, Brixton’s constantly changing.
Old stalwarts like Hootenanny’s and The Dogstar have been joined by a host of new bars, pubs and restaurants but, unlike other parts of London, they rub along just fine.
