Thank you for considering the Battersea Barge for your event. Please fill out the form on this page to enquire about hiring.

The Barge is a former 1930s converted Dutch grain barge. The Barge operates as a pub with food and drink and a space to hire for a variety of events including weddings, meetings, parties, live music, theatre, comedy and cabaret, having hosted the first London Cabaret Awards.

Click here for the layout and dimensions of the upper and lower decks of the boat.

The most popular space to hire is the lower deck. This includes exclusive use of the stage area and audience space, and shared use of the bar. If you intend to host a performance, we have a dressing room and AV for hire. The lower deck is suitable for groups of over 40 people, but can comfortably seat 75 and more at a squeeze.

The whole boat’s capacity is 150, but is also available for exclusive hire for groups of over 40 people.

Tables on the upper deck may also be reserved for small groups.

These different options are available to hire from 10:00am up to 11.30pm, with last orders at 11.00pm from Sunday to Thursday (departure by 11:30pm) and an extra hour on Friday and Saturday.

The hire charge consists of a non-refundable reservation fee and a refundable deposit or ticket allocation, held against a minimum spend or ticket sales. You keep 100% of ticket sales.
