Meet the neighbours

Brixton, South London

Brixton – we love it. From our great position on Coldharbour Lane, we are surrounded by so much great stuff; you never need get on the Victoria Line again!

Food, drinks, entertainment, you name – it’s local. We explore our fave spots to hang out in SW9.

Mamma Dough – A stones throw away from FGB, Mamma Dough can be found serving up “great tasting and good value sourdough pizza and a selection of homemade dishes and desserts”. Some of our staff claim it to be the best pizza is Brixton!

Federation – Literally our next door neighbour in Brixton Village and a hotspot for FG staff meetings. It’s the perfect route to the tube following those 6.30am classes for those early birds among us indeed of caffeine.

Want something to wear? Phillip Normal is king. Also in Brixton Village, Phillip Normal specialises in funky, individual prints: from T-shirts of Pat Butcher to the eponymous pug dog – it’s all original and very, very Brixton. We love it!

Nan Ban – Get a fix of Japanese Soul Food just along the road on Coldharbour Lane. Chef and founder, Tim Anderson was Masterchef’s youngest winner and this place is featured in the 2017 Michelin Guide. Using ingredients found locally in Brixton, expect flavourful, soulful ramen amongst other favourites.

Pop Brixton – Shoreditch ain’t the only Box Park about town. With cinema showings, Tai Chi, street food and independent shops, Pop Brixton is a very cool place to hang our day and night. “Pop Brixton is a temporary project that has turned disused land into a creative space for local, independent businesses. Come and discover South London’s most exciting start-ups working in food, retail, design and social enterprise.”

Need a place to work in Brixton? CAYA is a coffee shop and workspace for you the freelance life. Become a member or pay-as-you-go, but know that you’ll find your focus here… that and a great flight white. Freelance dream, really.

Then there’s this really amazing Hot Yoga studio, with great teachers and staff, big changing rooms and it’s called Fierce Grace… oh yeah – that’s us! Another popular Brixton hangout.

Have fun meeting our neighbours!
