London-South East London

In a world of increasingly slick venues, Seven at Brixton is a refreshing change. This Spanish-style watering hole is just a touch rough around the edges – and all the better for it. Located in a former suitcase shop, the bar embraces its colourful history.

Its handy position in Brixton Market, South London makes it a great place to begin your evening, or to finish it off in bohemian style. The interior decor is rugged and full of ramshackle character, creating a lively and unpretentious atmosphere that’s great for both friendly group meetups or a cosy tête-à-tête.

The food on offer is inspired by Spanish cuisine, consisting of a range of delicious tapas. While each dish is fairly modest, it’s very easy to fill up on all the delicious snacks on the menu. There are plenty of solid tapas staples such as patatas bravas and calamari, but Seven have also put their own spin on things. The rosemary focaccia bread with olive oil, a scrumptious fig, walnut and blue cheese salad and the aubergine in chilli are all standout favourites.

Drinks are a tempting mixture of classic recipes given a new lease of life with clever and quirky updates. From the salted coconut espresso Martini to the Mile High Negroni, you’ll find plenty of new twists on old favourites to enjoy. The wine list focuses mostly on Spanish wines, as you’d expect. The beers on offer are definitely worth a look, as there are some unusual Spanish craft beers on the menu that you might not have tried. You’ll also find French cider (Bolée Cidre) and a North London beer (the whimsically named Beavertown Neck Oil). If you can’t get away to sunny Spain right now, Seven is the next best thing.
