Pop Brixton is a community project, supporting local enterprise and jobs, with 70% of tenants resident in the area. It’s made up of repurposed shipping containers, with shops, bars, a radio station, food stalls, restaurants and even an urban farm. There’s usually a decent line-up of free and cheap events at Pop from networking to gigs DJ sets and even free Tai Chi.
The main food and drink area is in the middle courtyard space, in which you’ll find some of the best street food London has to offer. But it’s also worth exploring the little side alleys and nooks which are lined with food stalls too. You can eat and drink well into the evening at Pop Brixton, sampling the likes of World of Wurst, with the brilliantly simple promise of ‘sausages from around the world’). There’s also Vietnamese food from Viet Box, spiced burgers from Baba G’s Bhangra Burger and Japanese ramen from Koi Ramen. Drink options include plenty of Red Stripe on tap and spiced rum courtesy of the S11 bar.
