A new restaurant serving Italian-inspired small plates is to open in October on Ferndale Road opposite the Department Store in the Bon Marché building space previously used by Cabana.

It will be run by Albion & East, caterers to “the London millennial generation”, that already operates Canova Hall on the ground floor of the Department Store.

The new establishment, Cattivo (“naughty” in Italian), will also be a late-night bar.

Speciality gin blending and cocktail masterclasses are planned as well as nightly entertainment including cabaret, jazz, and circus and magic performances.

Albion & East managing director Sarah Weir told The Caterer: “We’re super excited to introduce Cattivo to the vibrant Brixton neighbourhood. It complements our sister bar Canova Hall but offers something different and continues to add to the energetic Brixton night life and restaurant scene.”


  1. I slipped and fell on that black and white ceramic tiling today. Who’s bright spark idea was it to use that as a pavement??? I wasn’t even walking quickly omg. Or is this just another way to weed people out of the area lol.
