The Doodle BarLocated off Battersea's beaten track, within the ex-dairy warehouse Testbed1, the Doodle Bar is a venue ideal for the creative types. Found through a dark alley and across a car park, and with nothing but a small neon sign stating 'Bar' above the warehouse entrance, it takes word of mouth or just a lucky stumble for people to come across this gem of a venue. Originally a pop-up, the Doodle Bar concept was so popular that it succeeded in being granted permanent residency. The notion is for visitors to embrace their inner artist and doodle on the blank canvas that is the chalkboard walls and bar. The Doodle Bar also houses a ping pong table, serves organic food and hosts a weekly pop up bakery, life drawing classes, and comedy and music events.
