Seven, Brixton


Exotic Brixton Market is the location for this cheap and cheerful daytime caff that morphs into an ersatz Spanish backstreet bar each evening. Its quirky luggage theme - battered vintage suitcases double as display shelves - is a nod to the former shop unit's past incarnation, while local artists’ works are featured in a rambling punky gallery space above. Enjoy a selection of wines at peasant prices or try various sherries - so now, senores -  Hispanic lagers and cocktails, cheap and cheerful enough at five quid. Try basil and ginger beer mojito, old fashioned and vodka, marmalade and pomegranate muddle Electric Avenue - named after the local street commemorated in Eddy Grant's hit about the 1981 Brixton riots - sound familiar? Charged, as tradition demands, by tallying up the skewers at the end of your visit, pinxtos are a typical mix of cheese, chorizo, hams, spicy bites and piscine pieces. have a sharing board to yourself  if you're really hungry, or order soups, salads churros and trad Spanish desserts. It’s no elBulli, but for a fun informal bar and a chance to try Ferran AdriĆ ’s creamy, fruity, floral Estrella Damm Inedit beer, I rate Seven a 5. Sorry it took me 6 months to get down to SW2.
