Late Night, Outdoor Seating, Good for Groups, Good Bar/Cocktails
Brothers Eric and Ian Hilton have a formula: Take an average concept such as a British pub—or wine bar (Dickson), barbecue joint (American Ice Co.), or bistro (Marvin)—style it to the nines, arm it with skilled bartenders, and let the crowds roll in. The tri-level Brixton is a bar for all seasons, with one of the best (and biggest) roof decks in town for temperate evenings and a Scottish-lodge-like second floor with a fireplace and a cozy couch—the perfect spot in winter. Insider tip: It’s a bar with a split personality: a packed weekend meat market (with some quality-control issues) and a laid-back weekday neighborhood place. We far prefer the latter. Open daily.
