Fancy a cocktail in the room that once powered a fifth of London?
Battersea Power Station's historic Control Room B will soon open as a 1950s-inspired bar. It's quite a change in function for a room that once supplied power to a fifth of London.
The brutalist space was opened in the 1950s, to work alongside the art-deco Control Room A. Its new lease of life comes on 14 October 2022, when the entire complex opens to the public with over 100 shops, restaurants and cafes, events venues, and that chimney lift experience.
According to the PR, "The establishment will feature mid-century furniture and glassware, and there will also be a beautiful centrepiece bar, which is a turbine-inspired radial sculpture." Its main trade will be cocktails and the like, but it opens from 10am for coffee, tea and pastries.
The new bar is under the auspices of Inception Group, who are the people behind Mr Fogg's and Cahoots. This new concept bar will be their biggest project yet.
We're told that "Each drink will be influenced by the Power Station and the 1950s Control Room through vessels and ingredients used." In that case, we look forward to sipping hearty mugs of beefy drink and Ovaltine.
