A new rooftop bar will be opening its doors in Brixton as we head into the summer months.

Pergola Brixton will open on Saturday, May 4 giving south Londoners the chance to soaks up the sun as they enjoy drinks in the warmer weather.

The venue will be decorated in tropical greenery and colourful murals with the goal of making guests “feel as if they’ve stepped into a sun kissed paradise upon arrival”.

There will be a retractable roof terrace, which is intended to make it “the perfect rooftop party spot come rain or shine”.

It will run a programme of events and parties and be open from Tuesday through to Sunday.

From Tuesday to Thursday, there will be food and drink offers such as discounted sharing platters from the variety of food traders from Brixton Village, as well as £5 margaritas on Thursdays as a way to bring in the weekend early.

On Fridays, Pergola Lates will take place.

This entails a DJ, a live band with steel drums, bongos and a saxophonist with the aim to give guests a night to remember.

Happy hour will be from 5pm – 7pm Tuesday to Friday and no entry free or tickets will be required.

On Saturdays, the venue will host bottomless brunches where customers can have food from Brixton Village delivered to their table.

Drinks at Pergola Brixton will follow a tropical theme with a variety of margaritas on offer to choose from.
