Lambeth council’s licensing committee is considering an application for a mobile bar in the courtyard of Brixton Village on Coldharbour Lane opposite Carlton Mansions and the new Ovalhouse theatre.

The application for the bar to be open from 11 am to 11pm every day of the week is in the name of Street Food Union Ltd, which was launched in September last year.

The company runs a food market on Soho’s Rupert Street and can be hired to create “a standout, unique, delicious, exciting and fun street food catering experience” for events.

Its eight-metre by three metre bar in Brixton would “complement” four street food kiosks in the courtyard which is next to the newly opened Laundry bar and restaurant.

Concern about an increase in noise in the area, particularly from the Lost In Brixton bar above Brixton Village market, has led to complaints, anonymous so far, to the Blog.
