Now summer is upon us, everyone is searching for the perfect place to enjoy the sun whilst having a nice meal and beverage. Brixton Beach is back and is that place which delivers the closest thing to a beach without water. This rooftop setting is an immense area with various sections from a courtyard to disco and the highlight of the venue a large open space filled with sand and beach chairs, what more can you ask for.
Numerous bars are spread throughout the venue and an isolated region where food can be purchased from four shacks – Nanban (Japanese Soul Food), Mac to the Future (Big Mac ‘n’ Cheese), Stakehaus (Sliders, steaks and chips) and Del74 (Traditional Mexican). I went for the Steakhaus Sliders with Blue Cheese chips and Valerie (my plus one) tried the Del74. I won the food choice with a large plate of chips and some delicious sliders (Steak w/ Blue Cheese + Aubergine and Mozzarella), whereas Del74 delivered delicious tacos but very minimalistic for the price.
Whether you’re up for a relaxing evening in the sun laying back in a beach chair or want to dance the night away, Brixton Beach can cater for your needs. I personally loved feeling the sand between my toes once more. Nothing more relaxing than a beer in a beach chair with the shoes off. I’d love to go back on a Saturday afternoon with a group of friends enjoying some music whilst soaking up the sun and see where the night takes us.
Parties are running right through till August and I can imagine the vibe would be electric. Exercise at the beach also supplies all your fitness needs in with numerous classes from yoga to muscle building. So, flick off the thongs (the real name for flip flops) fall into a beach chair and melt into a great state of relaxation.
