Drinks & Nightlife
Check out the many places that make​ Brixton's nightlife one of a kind in London.
Built in the 1920s as a cinema, Brixton Academy is London's most credible major music venue. The 5,000-capacity space is popular because the raked standing area gives good sightlines. Pop acts such as Grace Jones, Goldfrapp and club nights occasionally feature, as one of the capital's largest non-stadium venues. Brixton Academy played its part in rock history – it hosted the Sex Pistols reunion gigs in September 2007, Leftfield broke the venue's decibel record in 1996, and The Smiths played their last ever gig here in December 1986. 5 mins walk away from apartment.
