Way more than just a park and a big power station, Battersea is one of south London’s most sociable suburbs, jam-packed with trendy gastropubs, hangouts and cocktail bars. It’s also home to quirky Northcote Road, where you’ll find some of the best boutiques and beauty bars in the capital. But before you jump on next the train to Clapham Junction, check out these exclusive local offers, courtesy of Portico Battersea estate agents.

Not a sommelier? Not a problem! There’s no need to swirl, sniff and sham in this wine shop; the staff are on a mission to make wine socially inclusive, and go to great lengths to make their customers feel welcome and relaxed. Upstairs you’ll find a wonderfully stocked wine shop, and downstairs you’ll find a (non-snooty) industrial style restaurant and bar, with a room at the back for private parties. You can try a huge range of wines by the glass, and the menu has been designed to complement the wine. We recommend the baked camembert with honey, or their spicy sourdough toasties – yum!

Is there a better way to say thank you, hello, Happy Birthday or I love you than with a biscuit? We certainly don’t think so. Biscuiteers a magical biscuit boutique and café on Northcote Road, offering mini works of arts and delicious coffee and cakes. We love their biscuit cards, which are lovingly decorated and then hand-iced with a message of your choice.

If you want a good cocktail in London, you usually have to be prepared to pay for it. But we’ve found an exception: Southsider Cocktail Club. Battersea’s best kept secret is bringing the New York drinking scene to Battersea Rise; sit at the bar and let the mixologists whip you up a creative concoction or head with a group and get cosy in their big booths. Happy Hour is every evening between 5-8pm, where all cocktails are just £6.

Lara Lashes is a little boutique, hidden away in a lovely townhouse at the top of Battersea Rise. (You’ll know you’re there when you see the pink neon flashing Lara Lashes sign in the window.) The salon specialises in eyelash extensions and a range of professional treatments from LVL, eyelash/eyebrow threading, tinting and waxing. They even offer a fantastic eyebrow extension service, ideal if you’re off on holiday or looking to ditch the eyebrow pencil.

East meets West in this Battersea spa, so expect exotic plants, flickering lanterns and the soft smell of lemongrass. There’s an impressive selection of treatments available, from anti-ageing facials (where vitamins and antioxidants are absorbed in the skin using soundwaves and small, painless electrical pulses) to ache alleviating massages and a range of traditional beauty services. The friendly and expert beauticians use 100% organic, Ytsara natural ingredients, which are grown on organic farms in Northern Thailand.
