The Brixton

The Brixton's Second Anniversary

On January 29th, the gorgeously designed English tavern with hard rock edges celebrated two years at their Cow Hollow location. Owners Hugo Gamboa, Adam Snyder, and Andy Wasserman provided a four-hour open bar of their famously well-made cocktails, smart beer list, and delicious wines to an eager crowd of regulars and newcomers, who grooved to a soundscape of classic Brit rock hits.

Highlights of the evening included generous rotations of the Brixton's delectable menu:

The Brixton Will Leave You Full and Happy

Opened early last year by the owners of respective hotspots Otis Lounge, Mas Sake, Taverna Aventine and The Ambassador, Union Street's The Brixton is the kind of place you can always count on being full of lively sounds, good smells and happy vibes.

The Brixton: If Walls Could Talk

Around summertime last year, three local restaurant and nightclub industry vets: Andy Wasserman (Otis Lounge), Hugo Gamboa (Mas Sake) and Adam Snyder (Taverna Aventine, The Ambassador), started working on an "English Tavern with an old world feel and a rock n' roll edge" for the shuttered Left at Albuquerque digs in Cow Hollow. For the life of them, they couldn't come up with a name. After months of brainstorms and "friendly" nudges from their publicist, the gents almost used the "Tar and Feathers" moniker that graced the location back in the 70s when it was a bar and live music venue. Then Wasserman threw out The Brixton, a shortened version of famous London rock venue, The Brixton Academy; and the tavern's fate was sealed.
