Brixton’s Market House will reopen on Friday 25 March with the latest of its many occupants – from the Coach and Horses pub in the 80s to its most recent previous incarnation, Karakana.
Back as Market House with food by “chicken connoisseurs” Wingmans, which describes itself as “a multi award-winning restaurant group specialising in homemade American-style comfort foods with emphasis on everything chicken”. It already has outlets in Kilburn and Soho.
Also on offer in the venue on Coldharbour Lane will be an “expansive cocktail menu”, an “exciting late-night programme” and a fresh interior – the whole run by a team that “knows and loves Brixton” – the one that runs Brixton Jamm and the Courtyard on Brixton Road.
Jamm is also now playing host to the acclaimed Straight Pocket nights that began life in Pure Vinyl on Ferndale Road and had been due to transfer to Market House when Covid hit.
