Battersea Barge


The Battersea Barge is a unique, newly refurbished riverside bar with lots of light, glass, steel and huge amounts of personality. Customers can either book tables in advance or simply walk aboard for drinks by the river.

The kitchen has now re-opened for business, serving freshly boat-mad hand-stretched pizzas. Battersea Barge also currently has delicious draught beer and a selection of spirits, with a whole roster of wines on the drinks list.

The Barge has 3 levels, with large upper deck, spacious mid deck that includes our outside terrace and private east deck, and lower deck with stage and great sound and lighting. This means that it also hosts events, live music, cabaret, theatre and weddings and can be hired privately. 

Located amongst a community of houseboats and alongside the new developments of Nine Elms, the Barge makes for a contrasting oasis of calm away from the crowds and traffic. 

With views of Battersea Power Station and the City, the Barge is a great space to spend some time floating (sometimes) on the river.
