Sukoshi Sushi is opening its doors on Cucumber Alley and introducing its sit-down sushi bar which can host up to 12 diners. This family business, started by Chef Andrew Le and his dad, has been making delicious sushi for over two decades. Their menu includes some classic items such as maki rolls, nigiri and creative bigger rolls.


The latest offering from Arrow Hospitality, Geode – named after a crystal – is a decadent three-storeyed Georgian townhouse. As you enter, you will be welcomed by a sculptural cocktail bar, and moving upwards, you will find yourself in a mezzanine conservatory with an open kitchen (equipped with pizza oven, rotisserie station and Robata grill). 

End your night in the late-night dining space above. To add to the experience, music will be played here too - as soon as the curtains are drawn, to symbolically ‘close the kitchen’. Executive chef Francesco Scala (ex-Novikov) and Yuka Aoyama (ex-Nobu, Roka and Annabel's) have created dishes which mix Mediterranean and Asian influences.


Finch, a brand-new wine bar coming to Brixton, is set to bring English wines into the spotlight. The bar offers a selection of different varieties of wines from around the world, with a focus on smaller and more experimental winemakers. 

As part of Grays and Feather's avian-themed series (which includes Plume in Covent Garden since 2018 and Peregrine in Leadenhall Market opening this year), the intimate venue seats just twelve 'cabinet of curiosities'-style, inspired by the finch bird.

Outside has space for eighteen people and will also host rotating exhibitions from local Brixton artists as part of the Brixton Art Trail. If you'd rather snack on something else than their carefully paired bar snacks and sharing plates, Finch allows customers to bring their own food from other nearby venues. Sounds like a perfect spot to meet with any picky friend!
