Nine Elms, Battersea

American Restaurant and Dive Bar

Battersea – Rittenhouse Square

The unofficial American consulate in London

Don’t let the diplomatic officiousness of the area fool you, Battersea’s got a vibrant and unpretentious underbelly and Passyunk Avenue – adjacent to the American Embassy – is the Ministry of Fun for Southwest London. National Public Radio in America once hailed Passyunk Avenue the unofficial American consulate in London.

We take our diplomatic mission seriously as we strive to build cultural bridges steeped in the frank, but friendly vibe that characterizes our home city, Philadelphia. Picture exquisitely gritty Philly, the best in regional American food and drink, It’s Always Sunny playing on loops, American bar games stoking competition, fans cheering their favorite teams to the rhythm of Americana rock, with liberal portions of liberty and justice for all. When the weather cooperates, don’t miss the Ambassador’s Terrace, our massive outdoor patio perfect for al fresco partying! The refined Rittenhouse section of Philly meets Southwest London and the union is a foreign relations win for Battersea.

And what do I order?

There always seem to be a group sinking Buds over buffalo chicken wings on the seats out front, so it’d make sense to start there. Beyond the Budweiser, the bar serves up Victory Brewing Company Prima Pils straight from Philadelphia, plus USA-brewed Blue Point Toasted Lager. Don’t miss the combo ubiquitous in its home city: the Citywide Special, a shot of whiskey and a beer — served up here as a shot of Jim Beam and a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Operating Hours:

Monday – Friday: 11:00am – 12:30am
Saturdays & Sundays: 10:00am – 12:30am

Kitchen closes at 10:00pm. Last drinks at 12:00am

Amazing philly cheesesteak and wings. Can't imagine I missed it for 3 yrs. Better for small groups - will prefer over brew dog.

They weren’t kidding when they said this place was a dive bar. I usually go to the Cleveland street branch but came here for the batting cage which was a lot of fun for the whole family. Food is great and consistent throughout branches. Make sure you try the mozzarella sticks and chicken strips, the ranch is also great.

Amazing location; it’s underground and at the banksy graffiti Tunnel! Delicious tipical US food. The staff is very kind and the bathroom is full of gravities which gives the ambiance a special highlight. It’s a sports bar and you can see and play sports. Loved the place. The joggers are awesome.
