Combining big food, proper drinks and a soundtrack of low-slung disco, late night jazz and grown-up house, Sorry, No Vacancies is set to open in the heart of Brixton (378 Brixton Road) from November til January. The split level venue which comes complete with heated yard and smoking area will open its doors to the public for the first time on Saturday 2nd November.
Setting out to create a space that equally satisfies all the senses, “EAT. DRINK. DANCE” is the inspiration and driving force behind the project. For the peckish, food for the venue will be curated by one of London’s finest chefs: Chris Gillard from St John Restaurant, presenting his own fantasy hot dog menu. A festival favourite and pop-up veteran himself, Chris and his team set up shop in “The Dog House”, the venue’s in-house hot dog emporium.
Unveiling a menu of gloriously intoxicating tipples such as “Blue Cheer”, “Flashback” and “Now Get Hip”, Soul Shakers (MeatLiquor, Burger Lobster) bring the kind of deft mixology that has seen them become some of London’s most sought after drinks dons.
Weekends will see a rolling roster of guest DJs including The Invisible, Soft Rocks, Hannah Holland, Sound of the Cosmos, Cut & Shut Disco with many more to be announced. Meanwhile Thursdays and Sundays are set to feature a lo-fi mix of rockabilly and blues as well as live organist.
