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.
