A new, one-of-a-kind destination, created with the local community in the heart of Brixton is opening on 29th May.
Opening at the end of the month, Pop Brixton is set to become a top social destination and will give the next generation of food and retail traders, local startups and entrepreneurs a venue to showcase their work and grow their businesses while also providing local jobs, supporting training and enterprise.
With Brixton already established as a go-to, foodie destination in London, Pop Brixton is set to build on this success and create London’s hottest new destination in the heart of Brixton. There will be plenty to choose from, including the renowned Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen taking up her first permanent residency offering authentic Ghanaian dishes, through to Miss P’s BBQ bringing their juicy beef ribs and Baba G’s serving up an Indian and British food fusion.
As well as over 20 mouth-watering food and drink vendors, Pop Brixton will boast independent retail outlets. From vintage clothing sellers Make Do & Mend through to Japanese tea house, Kyocha, Pop Brixton will provide a unique shopping destination full of hidden gems. Office and workspace will also be home to local businesses and the Impact Hub Brixton will provide affordable co-working space for start-ups, allowing enterprise and innovation to flourish.
Pop Brixton is a place that has come to life through the talents of many local people. Tenants have committed an hour a week to a time-bank for community giveback, which will involve skill sharing with other tenants and the local community, including through a purpose built training space. Other initiatives range from Pop Farm – a garden and greenhouse area planted by the local community – through to local artist exhibitions, workshops and an event space with a programme orchestrated by tenants. The 200 capacity event space will offer a chance to enjoy a wide range of events, including TEDx Brixton talks, gigs and cinema screenings.
What’s not to love – great work guys, we can’t wait to check it out.
