Following government guidelines on outdoor performances, our open-air Courtyard will be open for live comedy from 26 July to 9 August.
The building, including the Scratch Bar, will be open to comedy ticket holders only. Customers wishing to enjoy pre-show or interval drinks will be allocated a table for the duration of the evening. There will be table service and drinks can also be pre-ordered. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer food.
We are taking the utmost care to comply with Covid-19 safety guidelines and keep visitors safe. Social distancing, temperature checks, hand sanitising stations and a one-way system will be in place.
Scratch Bar is uniquely positioned in Battersea Arts Centre's iconic Grade II* Listed building on Lavender Hill. A stunning marble staircase and Victorian mosaic floor are first to greet you when you step through the doors, swiftly followed by our friendly staff and welcoming bar, full of quirky upcycled furniture and a wood-burning fire.
A sun-streaked café by day; a candlelit bar by night, the Scratch Bar serves fresh, homemade food, with a range of locally-brewed craft beers, wines and signature cocktails that make it the perfect venue for both lunchtime meetings and after-work drinks.
Did you know we won Best Theatre Bar in SW London in 2014, 2015 and 2016. When you’ve been once, you’re sure to become a regular at the Scratch Bar.
