Naked Sushi

On the first Monday of every month, The Doodle Bar in Battersea turn up the heating in preparation for a spot of nudity. Burlesque style.

The wonderful Susan Dray, hosts an evening of music, a well-stocked bar and burlesque life drawing within the confines of four blackboard walls. The class is open for all, you are invited to participate as and when you like taking regular wine/cocktail breaks if you so wish. I finished art college some years ago and now hardly ever take the opportunity to draw. Picking up a pencil is rare as I find myself forever glued to a computer screen & keyboard, kindle or phone. However, there is something to be said for a blank, white sheet of paper in front of you and a pencil in hand. Looking, focusing solely on one thing and recreating it with marks on a page.

On a day-to-day basis my mind flits and skips continually, always thinking forward or dwelling back, planning and worrying, but on the first monday of every month, for just a few hours, I stop thinking and tune out. And it is heavenly.

Calling all art lovers, part time doodlers and those with a penchant for pencils! You do not have to be Picasso, or have drawn since childhood school days. Shrug off any inhibitions and give it a go.

The Doodle do not serve food on a Monday so to accompany a chilled bottle of wine we hit Bento, the takeaway sushi spot just around the corner. The fried tempura tuna and prawn crunch are not the ‘light’ option but it would be a travesty to miss these huge rolls of deliciousness smeared in honey and wasabi dip. Generous platters of fresh, scrummy sushi.. there is no better way to start the first grim Monday of the month.

If drawing or rather gorgeous ladies in nipple tassels really isn’t your bag, The Doodle Bar is still worth a visit. They have a wide range of special events ranging from nail painting to bakery sales and comedy nights. A street kitchen opens alongside the bar at weekends serving a bunch of delicious dishes all made from organic ingredients sourced from UK farms. See webpage for a full run down: The Doodle Bar
