Award-winning, unique venue in a great location, just several minutes’ walk from Vauxhall tube station along the beautiful river path, with a Santander cycle stand and bus stop nearby.


With a bar and restaurant, a stage with lights & sound, it’s the perfect venue, licensed for wedding ceremonies and ideal for parties & shows of all kinds.


Open daily serving delicious food and a wide range of drinks, the Barge is surprisingly spacious, with the upper deck remaining open to the public when there is an event on the lower deck.


Moored on the Thames in the Nine Elms area, London’s largest regeneration zone and new residential and business district, with views of the iconic Battersea Power Station.

Please note: the Barge is now temporarily closed due to the Thames Tideway Tunnel project and is aiming to be back in action from the end of March/April 2020, following some refurbishment (footage of move to temporary new spot and images of move). We aim to take bookings from February/March 2020. In the meantime, we would love to recommend our sister vessel, Tamesis Dock for your special event, ‘boat fix’ or food & drinks. If you are interested in Tamesis, we would love to hear from you at ahoy@tdock.co.uk.

With the Barge temporarily out of action due to the Thames Tideway Tunnel project, we’d like to recommend these events on our sister vessel, Tamesis Dock, in the meantime:

TONIGHT: Would you like to play along with a pub full of ukulele players? Join the throng from 7.30pm at the Tamesis Dock in Vauxhall or the Royal George in Soho. It's free and you don't need to be any good. https://t.co/fo1s5cOH0T BatterseaBarge photo
