Donostia Social Club, a small restaurant located upstairs at Pop Brixton, is an intimate little spot where you can grab a seat at their long counter and order classy little plates of Basque tapas, like the ones you imagine yourself eating in San Sebastian, except in a south London shipping container. It’s informal, fun, and drinking a glass of sherry here is a low-key, ‘I know a little place’ kind of move that’s a good call for an alternative to your garden variety date.
