Popular London bar Tequila Mockingbird is to open a new site which will be its first food-led branch in the capital.
The bar group, which currently comprises sites in Clapham, Putney and Tooting, will open a new branch in Brixton after acquiring a site of the former Dip and Flip restaurant via CDG Leisure.
The new space will be the first in the portfolio to serve food, as well as remaining true to its concept of offering ‘classic cocktails, resident DJs and late-night dancing’.
Tequila Mockingbird in Brixton is expected to open in September after a complete refurbishment.
Jon Bas, director, Tequila Mockingbird, said: “Brixton is an excellent location with a brilliant nightlife and good atmosphere. Tequila Mockingbird will meet the demand for a space that moves from early evening to night, whether visitors are looking for a cosy date venue or to come and party to our DJ sets until 2am.”
Tom Crosthwaite, CDG Leisure, said: “This expansion is testament to the strength of the Tequila Mockingbird brand. The venue will fit in perfectly with Brixton’s buzzing leisure scene and makes a great addition to its nightlife.”
