Nicola Archer
Booked The Lounge at The Castle
The Castle really accommodated us even when our plans changed and we were faced with needing a smaller space. They were really helpful and accessible.
Sherine Campbell Lewis
Booked The Rec at Impact Brixton
Jenine, the Manager and her staff were all very helpful beforehand, around during the party but without imposing and on hand to direct while we were clearing up. The venue space downstairs is very good with 2 side rooms available - one to store the tables/chairs and another room with a 2-seater settee and armchair which came in very handy for the adults to sit while the teenagers dance. There is a small kitchenette with a microwave to heat up food, dishwasher and sink area. Security Staff attached to the Pop Brixton venue are also on hand to ensure that the general public did not gatecrash our party. The location is excellent with the tube 5mins walk, the train 3mins and buses from all directions on the main and side roads. Good parking available at the side of the venue. If you don't want/need to provide food at your event then guests have access to all the different small restaurants within the Pop Brixton complex. Toilets available for guests usage.
