The ultimate Brixton Valentine’s Day guide

We’ve out together a guide featuring food, wellness and gifts to help you find the perfect way to spoil your Valentine this Feb.

If you can’t make the 14th work don’t fret- the Shrub & Shutter are putting on their special Valentine’s menu between Thursday and Saturday. Save the romance for the weekend and head there for a meal that will be worth the wait. And, because it’s Shrub & Shutter, it would be rude to NOT try a couple of their legendary cocktails too.

Bottle + Rye have designed a menu made to be shared. Over candlelight tuck into a 5 course menu that features some of their most popular dishes (yep- the anchovies on toast is in there). The main event is a bone-in sirloin to share and included in the price is a welcome fizzy cocktail to get you in the mood.

An 18 course Omakase awaits you and your date at Temaki on the 14th. It’s a perfect date- nibble on freshly prepared bites as soon as they are ready: food is prepped right there in front of you and then passed over the bar by the skilled chefs straight into your hands. It’s a great light conversation starter too, perfect if you’re looking for ways to break the ice.

If you’re looking to keep it casual this Valentine’s Day, check out Original Flava’s new permanent kitchen residency at Market House. It will be laid-back-sexy-vibes, and with their Caribbean flavours, there is guaranteed SPICE.

Danclairs, SW9 8PR

Though Danclairs isn’t doing any specials for the 14th, we couldn’t leave it off this list because it is just such a nice date spot. Nestled in the heart of Brixton there is a happy buzz to this spot, and you’re likely to be as attracted to its menu as you are to the date sitting opposite you…

Naughty Piglets, SW2 1PE

Quiet, intimate and a wine list to boot- Naught Piglets is the perfect setting to let love blossom. This Herne Hill eatery has an ever-changing seasonal menu of small plates for you to share over a few glasses of something probably natural, orange and organic.


Naked Hare Group, SW2 5RJ

Treat your loved one with an indulgent facial to get them glowing. We love the ‘Get Naked’s ultra nourishing bespoke facial’; an hour of pampering where you’ll be cleansed, exfoliated, steamed and moisturised. Beautifully fresh face: pending.

If you’re planning a romantic night in then this is the perfect choice for you. Brixton Wine Club have released a Valentine’s Day special. ‘Sealed With A Loving Can’ is packed with 4 cans, snacks and a really cute postcard too.

There’s nothing like a bunch of flowers to make someone blush. “Shades of nude” and “Hot” bouquets are this Valentine’s Day specials at Stems Wilder. They’ll deliver to local postcodes or reserve your beautifully different bouquet to pick up from store.
