Effra Social – The Churchill Lounge

Deep in the heart of Brixton, the Effra Social is fast becoming one of it’s swankiest nightspots and as such you would naturally expect their venue space to be quite different – and it is. The carefully restored Churchill Lounge is a real flash back to the 1970’s and  is ideal for small to medium size parties. With flock wallpaper, original furniture, own bar and a fireplace that has to be seen to be believed, this cheeky little room really is a one off. Day hire as well as evening  can be arranged so if you are looking for something stylish and different that will certainly make your guests smile this room is for you
