Brixton Living Bar, Coldharbour Lane reopens

Old school Brixtonites will remember it as the Coach and Horses – or even perhaps the IsoBar – but last night saw the long overdue opening of the Living Bar, 433 Coldharbour Lane SW9

Last night’s bash was a bit of a ‘soft launch’ – there’s still a fair bit of decorating to do and there was a very strong whiff of fresh paint in the air – but the bar is expected to open fully next week .

The bar unexpectedly closed at the end of 2007 and apart from a short period where it was ignominiously used as a butchers shop – has lain empty ever since.

The beers were free last night – always a good way for a new pub to introduce itself to the neighbours – and there’s two ‘guest list’ nights coming up this weekend.

When completed, the bar will be on two floors and be open till 4am on weekends. Welcome back, Living Bar!
