There’s a time and a place for The Blues Kitchen. In a big group? Organising a bourbon-fuelled birthday? Wanna stuff your face and dance it all off? Get in here.
They’ve classed the old Electric Social up with shiny copper bars and mood lighting and have split the fun across two levels. Downstairs is for serious feasting, live jams and tattooed bartenders shaking up whisky heavy cocktails. But when you’re in the mood for dancing, you’d better get up those stairs…
If you’re into bottles, this is your place - we’re talking the biggest selection of rare and vintage bourbon in London - so Old Fashioneds, Whiskey Sours and Juleps are on the cards. Over the classics and feeling wild? Go off piste and ask the bartenders for their signature bourbon cocktails. All good. You can’t come by without eating, 'cos The Blues Kitchen is famous for serving some of the best BBQ this side of Texas! Be warned: you go hard or go home if you’re eating here. All the meats are slow-cooked in-house, and BarChick could’ve eaten the 16-hour smoked short beef rib for days.
Swing by in the week for a quiet (ish) one and you’ll find Brixton hipsters and after-work boozers but at the weekend it’s party time. The Blues Kitchen is like a one-stop shop: pre-dinner cocktails, big filler food, dancefloor antics and don’t forget the live world-class blues, roots and soul artists that hit the two stages every night.
