You can’t beat the atmosphere of The Blues Kitchen. With the aroma of smoke wafting and the sound of blues ringing through the room you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the Deep South.

What to Expect?

It’s all about the BBQ, with meat that falls apart, and which has been slow smoked for hours.

And, just this April, The Blues Kitchen in Brixton went bigger and smokier with some of the world’s most celebrated pitmasters invited down to Acre Lane for ‘The Big Smoke’.

What to Try

We sampled Wayne Mueller, owner of the Texan “cathedral of smoke” Louie Mueller Barbecue’s ribs and brisket at The Big Smoke. We recommend sharing a mix of meats and ordering as many sides as you can manage. From Beef Brisket and Short Beef Rib, to St Louis Pork Rib, you’ll feel the meat sweats for sure. And you shouldn’t have to choose between the crispy onion rings, sweet potato fries, mac and cheese, beans with burnt ends or coleslaw. We could go on…

If BBQ’s not your thing but you still want the traditional southern experience, their menu also includes Cajun classics such as catfish and prawn jambalaya and New Orleans gumbo.

Don’t miss 2 for 1 cocktails on Wednesday nights

What to Drink

It helps if you like whisky as classic cocktails come with a twist. The Dirty Mojito comes with a whisky smash and the Espresso Martini comes with a splash or two of bourbon. However, if that’s not your thing – why not try one of the beers. We loved the Beavertown Gamma Ray.

Best For…

Wednesday night indulgence! It’s 2 for 1 cocktails all night.

Don’t Miss

You can’t leave without trying their oreo donuts! They come served ridiculously sweet and still warm from the fryer, with a side of caramel sauce. Just try and forget about the calories…
