SquareMeal Review of Hope & Anchor Brixton

A fabulous Thai-themed ‘pleasure garden’ is the standout attraction at the funky Brixton venue: where else in London can you relax in a hammock outside your own private tree house or warm yourself by a fire pit when the sun goes down? Inside, the bar has ‘Aladdin’s cave’ interiors (chandeliers, leather sofas, velvet curtains, vintage knick-knacks etc), which contrast strikingly with the ‘dirty diner’ food on offer: think ribs, wings, fancy burgers, sharing plates, hot dogs, foot-wide pizzas and crinkle-cut cheesy fries. With DJs spinning the decks and busy bartenders crafting interesting drinks such as Key Lime Pie Martini or homemade basil lemonade with Tequila and jalapeño, the vibe quickly ramps up into party mode at weekends – so put on your dancing shoes and head upstairs. Quiz nights on Sundays.
