Four things to do in our hood

Posted October 9th, 2015

If you are thinking of seeing some of our lovely wares at our new Battersea Shack, why not make a day of it? Here's a rundown of our favourite local haunts:

1. Battersea Park Children's Zoo is a small, charming family-run zoo in the heart of Battersea Park. Combine mattress testing with a visit to see some monkeys and meerkats. Sweet.

Battersea Park, Chelsea, Embankment, London, SW11 4NJ

2. The Battersea Barge is a 1930s converted Dutch grain barge that regularly serves up music. comedy and cabret entertainment as well as some cracking views of the Thames.

Nine Elms Lane, London, SW8 5BP

3. The Lost Angel & Gaslight Grill is a firm favourite amongst local Loafers. Their Lavender Hill Bramble & Black Cherry Manhattan is yummy.

4. In the back of The Breakfast Club in Battersea Rise is a laundrette. And hidden behind a secret door is The King of Ladies: a 1970s-era bachelor pad-esque bar with a very retro cocktail list.
