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 summer(ish) 2020 (boat oars crossed), following some refurbishment (footage of move to temporary new spot and images of move). We will let you know here when we are able to take bookings. 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:

Ukulele Wednesdays is on as usual TODAY, February 19. Join a jam of 30-odd ukulele players in a pub where no one cares if you're any good.
It's free and implausibly fun.
