The Doodle Bar is a space in Battersea where people have the freedom to enjoy a good scribble, play a game of ping pong and enjoy some street food on our outside 'beach' area. The bar is set against the backdrop of TESTBED1 - a dramatic and versatile arts and events space for creative innovation, ideas and experimentation.

  • Re-planting the Plant Bar!

    Calling all kids! The Doodle Plant Bar is looking sad and empty, so we need little hands to help make lots of mess and to spruce it up! We'll be providing soil and autumnal plants, and Okido Magazine will be on hand with fun drawing activities. Kids (and adults!) food available all afternoon.
