Canova Hall is Martello Hall’s younger sister. Where Martello Hall is a pub conversion in Hackney, Canova has taken over a former grade listed department store in Brixton and, yes, it’s very cool. Like Martello, there are booths and long tables as well as wine, beer, cocktails, and pizza. They also serve all of those things until late every night.
