They call it a country manor with a twist, we say nu rave hunting lodge slash beer hall slash cocktail lounge n club: it’s the perfect addition to the Brixton scene. With long wooden tables, book shelf wallpaper, pop arted walls, lit up stag heads, and obvs a moustached Mona Lisa.
Not your typical, run of the mill burger joint, here at Electric Social you can tuck into anything from beetroot crusted salmon to Cornish squid in Ding Dong ale batter, and of course BarChick’s staple: a big fat juicy steak cooked to your taste (i.e. bloody enough to bring back to life).
Thirsty? Yes, then hit the cocktails: the very fresh English Garden is a favourite: cucumber, elderflower and Hendrick’s Gin shaken with pressed apple juice. Looking for your 5-a-day, you will be needing the Forbidden Fruits. They describe it as “almost healthy,” we say superfood: full of every berry under the sun, rum and a dash of sugar all shaken with ginger beer. Not bothered? Then have an ale, do the draught beers or get a bottle of vino for the table.
If you’re not here to eat, then you’ll want some of that leather in the sunken den, perfect for some private time, and yes the piano works so bring your jazz hands, ask nicely and they might even let you show off to your date. Don’t go rushing home from here, at 10pm they open the club upstairs. Throughout the week artists, bands and DJs show what they’ve got, they even rock out a reggae beat to accompany your roast on Sundays!
