Aren't you supposed to use the app to order food from any restaurant in the market and it is brought to your table? Most restaurants in the market have very limited covers so they will probably appreciate it - if their micro kitchens can keep up!I’ve been to a couple of Pergola venues for birthdays - they’ve been universally shit. Food and drinks run out constantly, massive queues, overcrowding x
They're making a big fuss out of their Tablesnapper app which, admittedly, is a clever way to get even more boozers and foodies rammed into the Village and turn this new space into an extended dining room with, no doubt, DJs a plenty.I’ve been to a couple of Pergola venues for birthdays - they’ve been universally shit.

Lost in Brixton will be breaking from the typical market dining format, using the first of its kind technology to deliver food straight from the market to the space. Using the NEW Tablesnapper app guests will be able order from the traders within Brixton Village and Market Row and runners will deliver it, allowing guests to sample the tasty and exotic range of cuisines available without having to leave the comfort of Lost in Brixton.
Come on. You can do better than this. If you don't agree with any of my comments, try constructing a counter argument rather than nonsense about the Daily Mail.Have you been infected by the Daily Mail?
Brixton already resembles Leicester Square after 9pm with drunken groups staggering about, so why not add another 440 of them, because we obviously don't have enough vomit on the pavements as it is
And Buzz comment:You can feel Brixton's soul ebbing away these days.. depressing.
And if they were really aiming at the community, they would have installed a community place! Not just buying stuff – food and drink or otherwise. Aren’t they making enough money to do that? And – the people who visit will be – visitors (tourists – unlikely to be locals)
have also read and am very disturbed by ‘a new hotel project’. Hondo Enterprises again and Sir David Adjaye saying that it’s “an incredible opportunity to give back to the community.” (Markets, community spaces and offices) Which community is that then Sir David? We have a housing problem round here! Are you building houses? I don’t think so!!!!!
I'm trying to work out where the space is. Is it in what were the artists studios?And here it is.
440 capacity cocktail and beer bar with food brought in via an app.
Lost In Brixton, ‘a concrete jungle with drinks and food,’ opens in Brixton Village on 1st August 2019
It's a new space they created at the back of the VillageI'm trying to work out where the space is. Is it in what were the artists studios?
Or is it above the Sports Direct Store?
I wonder how many restaurants in the market will sign up. As you say, many have micro kitchens.Aren't you supposed to use the app to order food from any restaurant in the market and it is brought to your table?

Yeah same. And no I don’t want a £10 credit note for my order turning up with items missing and what was there stone cold, I want my fucking money back!I’ve given up on Deliveroo - meals either turned up late and cold or just never got delivered
I guess the app will take a chunk of their cash, maybe the venue too. I can't seem to find anything about them on the web.I wonder how many restaurants in the market will sign up. As you say, many have micro kitchens.
Will market restaurants have to pay to use the App and the ‘runners’?
LIke the people at hungs. Also the delivery guy who always seems to be in Football kit (including shin pads)We order Chinese from Hungs in Streatham.
........He always delivered our orders after that. Now that’s service.
Bad broken links!
They are pretty keen to get it open for Aug 1st. Work was still happening last night at 10.30.
Here:But no reference to Brixton
Also Facebook link not found
‘Jungle’ theme for new Brixton Village venueHondo Enterprises, which runs Brixton’s covered markets in a joint venture with the New York based hedge fund Angelo Gordon, said that the site has been tested by independent sound engineers.
The design is by Zak architects who previously designed a proposed roof for Pop Brixton. The new space will have a retractable roof.
Angelo Gordon - WikipediaThe firm began buying real estate as early as 1990 through investments in the distressed debt of bankrupt real estate companies. In 1993, as real estate markets buckled under the weight of too much debt, the firm launched its opportunistic real estate strategy investments with the goal of improving and repositioning the property by increasing operating income
Are you sure that you and Brixton Blog have got the right Zak?
Social cleansing via the disco mirrorball of privilege!Are you sure that you and Brixton Blog have got the right Zak?
This one Zak Group is actually a UK based company that does interior design etc.
Clearly its not as romantic to have a UK design company doing a disco in Brixton - when there is a San Francisco architect of similar name making log cabin hidy holes in Hawaii.
Anyway whoever it is designing this folly, I understand from sources close to the ground that the arch next to the Jungle themed disco can no longer open his windows to get air or light thanks to this coruscating hedonism.
No doubt this is a double bonus for Network Rail/The Arches Company: simultaneously next to a vibrant jungle-themed night=spot and have a possibly unwanted tenancy terminated more easily?
Hondo are planning a new ' vibrant route' into Brixton
Canalisation of the River Effra ?....if this goes ahead along with Hondo's plans to turn Pope's Road into a monster yuppie booze/food emporium, Brixton will truly become the next Camden.
