Exotic Brixton Market is the location for this cheap and cheerful daytime caff, which morphs into a rustic ersatz, Spanish-style backstreet bar come evening. Its quirky ‘luggage’ theme nods to a

for good fun and a chance to try Ferran Adrià’s fruity, floral Estrella Damm Inedit beer, this is just the ticket.

A Spanish tapas and cocktail bar spanning over two floors with the top also acting as free exhibition space for local artists, meaning you can sit amongst the arty installations. It is beyond cool. It is uber cool. With a big open front spanning onto...
