Fancy Funkin Chicken, Coldharbour Lane, Brixton

Opened 30 September 2016 on Coldharbour Lane in Brixton, Fancy Funkin Chicken is a chicken shop and bar brought to you by a dynamic trio of young hospitality insiders, Nathan Pattie, Rollo Weeks and Lars Larson. No stranger themselves to the odd late night pit-stop to one of London’s many chicken joints, these guys know what it takes to manage the pecking order and elevate the humble chicken into something a bit fancier.

Expect an enticing menu of traditional herbed and spiced free-range fried chicken. Ethically sourced birds from a tranquil farm in Glastonbury are crusted with a Southern American recipe. Highlights include a kicking trio of Funkin Hot Wings, Funkin Funkin Hot Wings and I Can’t Feel My Funkin Face Hot Wings. Wings and boneless bites feature alongside a hearty selection of fried or flame grilled chicken breast or thigh burgers such as the Totally Tropical Burger, served with char’d pineapple and smoked chilli mayo and the momentous Big Cheese Burger, slathered with triple cheese, caramelised onion and honey glazed bacon. Teamed up with sides of fiery Chilli Cheese Fries, America’s favourite Tater Tots, Waffles and Corn Breads “a corn 3-way”, and polished off with Doughnuts straight out of the fryer, we’re talking serious eats.

“Funk fried” or flame grilled chicken aside, boozy concoctions, craft beers, wine and bubbles flow from the bar in bountiful supply. Fancy Funkin Chicken’s carefully curated cocktail list is full of flavour and refreshingly fuss-free, using locally sourced ingredients such as fruit from Brixton Market, and presented with immaculate attention to detail. Signature cocktails include the Hibiscus and Blackcurrant Julep, using a sprinkle of homemade hibiscus and blackcurrant syrup with Bourbon, mint and a dash of lime, and the Daisy, a biting mix of Tequila, fresh passion fruit, passion liqueur, lime and Aperol over ice.

The 50 cover dining room’s interior evokes an urban and residential warmth, using raw materials such as oak and artfully rusted steel. Hand-crafted antique and orange neon lighting illuminate navy walls and exposed brickwork adorned with graffiti art. Quirky furnishings such as chicken-shaped wall lights, together with a garden of herbs suspended overhead make for an alluring pen.

Fancy Funkin Chicken will play host to an eclectic and upbeat music programme of Jazz and Funk, with DJ’s performing from Thursday through to Sunday to get the party started.
