No 29 Power Station West
Breathtaking Neighbourhood Bar No 29 Power Station West Opens At Battersea Power Station
Situated between the iconic Power Station and Battersea Park, No 29 Power Station West has a stripped back utilitarian feel that rings true to the areas industrial heritage and references the style of the period.
With inspiration drawn from both local and worldwide influences, over 100 pieces of handpicked and crafted furniture, tiles and artwork fill the bar including a bespoke Crittall shopfront that claims the space and handcrafted Bert & May tiles that run throughout the downstairs River Bar. Soft furnishings of leathers, velvets and linens also fill the space, referencing the glamour of the 1920s period.
Architects and designers, Box 9 were tasked with creating the space by working alongside collaborators such as The French House, Bert & May and Jan Hendzel Studio to name a few. Artwork for the site has been handpicked from The Hang Up Gallery in Stoke Newington, reinforcing the home from home feel.
Lou Davies, Architect and Designer at Box 9 said: “The bespoke detailing for No 29 Power Station West really started to materialise as makers came into their own. We sourced exceptionally high quality materials to create Battersea’s individually designed pieces. This, combined with the back drop of our elegant, industrial interior with subtle nods to the power station means that it has shaped up to be a very characterful space.”
A bar first and foremost, No 29 Power Station West will proudly serve over 30 wines, 20 craft, draught and bottled beers, homemade soft drinks and a hand-picked collection of seasonal long and short serves including the Watermelon Sour and Passionfruit Caipirinha. The hand crafted menus run throughout the collection of bars and feature an all-day food offering including a refreshing array of seasonal dishes made from locally sourced food, scratch cooked on site. From a breakfast of avocado lime and chilli on sourdough to a lunch of coconut poached chicken salad, Sunday roasts of slow cooked short rib of beef and roast chicken breast, topped off with one of many satisfying desserts including white chocolate crème brûlée with passionfruit, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Mel Marriott, Darwin & Wallace, Managing Director commented: “We feel privileged and very excited to open our fifth pub in one of London’s most iconic locations. Together with our one-of-a-kind collaborators, we are building a place of integrity, a place with a sense of home. With references to its industrial past and its iconic location and views over the river and the arches, No 29 Power Station West will be the perfect backdrop for eating and drinking.”
