1. The best bar in Battersea for happy hours and oysters: HANNAH

Battersea, London

HANNAH sits on Battersea’s busy Lavender Hill street, in all its yellow glory. Offering up affordable food and drink against an industrial-casual backdrop, this Battersea bar manages the “price, food quality and general vibes” balancing act quite well.

Head to their happy hour for champagne cocktails until 9 pm. Take your pick of their Chambord Kir Royal (champagne, liqueur and raspberry), Champagne Classic (champagne, cognac, brown sugar, bitters, orange zest) or maybe the signature Hannah Spritz (Martini Fiero, prosecco, soda, grapefruit).

For food, cosy up with their gyoza, pork belly, baked camembert or the star of the show – £1.50 oysters every Tuesday from 1 pm - 9 pm. Their outdoor area is a nice addition, as are the sunsets, should you catch one.

2. The best bar in Battersea for wine lovers: Vagabond Battersea

Battersea, London

A modern wine haven. That’s definitely one way to describe Vagabond’s Battersea branch. Located in Battersea Power Station, the bar fits right in with its exposed pipes, concrete pillars and mixed wood interiors.

If you’re bored with the usual red, white and rosé, Vagabond is home to over 100 types of wine. With barrels and bottles on display, the bar stocks everything from sparkling, white, and red to rosé, orange and sweet wines (of the mainstream and indie variety).

Take your pick from one of their interactive wine machines, sit back, and enjoy the night.

The entire venue can be privately hired for events with up to 80 seated guests or 120 standing. More than plenty for a wine tasting we think.

3. A stylish bar in Battersea: Lost Society

Battersea, London

From the plush velvet booths and printed wallpaper to overhead leafy decorations, neon signs and touches of gold and animal print, in pretty ironic fashion Lost Society is a bar that actually wants to be found. And rightly so.

Step into their world on Battersea Park Road for disco brunches, live music sessions and Brazilian nights complete with Bossa Nova, Samba and jazz on repeat.

Under the glow of the fluorescent lights, take a look at Lost Society’s drinks menu. Expect your usual medley of beer, spirits and wines as well as floral and fruity cocktails like What’s The Crack (rum, lime sugar, peach bitters).

For a party that lasts a little longer, Lost Society have three spaces available for private hire – their Lounge Bar, VIP area and Lost Garden.

4. The best bar in Battersea for cocktails: Bar Social

Battersea, London

We reckon no few words have ever evoked the same amount of joy as cocktails for under £7, that said that’s what you’ll find at Bar Social.

Located on Lavender Hill, this bar serves up £5.95 and £6.95 cocktails daily from 4 pm - 9.30 pm (and 8.30 pm on Saturdays) and bottles of wine for just under £20. That’s more Whiskey Sours, Cosmopolitans and Mojitos for your buck, and your night out.

Expect live music till late, avant-garde art, decoratively bold wallpaper and the most maximalist bar display you’ll find in Battersea. In true cheap and cheerful fashion, Bar Social also offer free space hire (free prosecco and free balloons) for all events with at least 15 guests.

5. An electric Battersea bar: No.29 Power Station West

Battersea, London

One of the first things you’ll notice about No. 29 Power Station West is its space.

From the unfinished wood floors, comfy neutral-toned seats, and floor-to-ceiling windows for views of the River Thames on the terrace, to the open view of the kitchen, it’s a breezy and bright venue.

Head downstairs to the bar, photo booth and screening rooms. You’ll find things are a tad darker but as tastefully understated as ever.

For drinks, you could try a classic but quite frankly there are more exciting options. Their most interesting? The twisted cocktails - classics with a twist like the Popcorn Whiskey Sour (bourbon, popcorn sugar, lemon juice and angostura), Fig Old Fashioned and Winter Berry Negroni.

Hire out the entire venue for events with up to 450 people.

How to hire a bar in Battersea

We know that finding a venue the old-fashioned way (where you trawl the internet, contact 10 venues or set your heart on one, only to find that they're out of your price range and not even available on your dates) is a pain, and there are a few pitfalls between you and booking your perfect bar. Getting the venue finding process down to a professional art is what we’ve made our mission ever since we took on the events industry. We often get asked the same questions, so here's what we recommend to quickly and easily hire a space in Battersea.

Frequently asked questions

For bars in Battersea, you're spoilt for choice. Here's an extra special one that we vouch for:

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of exclusive hire of a bar or a private space in a bar. How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, an afternoon, or the night? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a Battersea bar. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best bars in Battersea and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
