GayCities Members report that Barcode Vauxhall has closed

Evening and late-night bar with a club sensibility
South-of-the-river surviving sibling of the late and once-popular Soho bar of the same name, which closed in July 2011. Caters to well-built and/or well-presented men and boys — the slicker side of Vauxhall — but with a hefty bear presence on certain nights. There are two rooms, with dancing in the back. In August 2011 the bar swelled its opening times in the spirit of after-hours DJ-driven Vauxhall, with admission charge for anyone arriving from 10pm. Steve Darragh's fitladz nights (for the sport- and scally-minded) happens here every Friday, with themed Saturdays on rotation. Open Sunday mornings from 6am. Closed Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday nights. Warning: in 2015 Vauxhall changes (redevelopment, corporate interests etc) are starting to take their on the local gay scene. Sure enough, Barcode closed its doors forever on Saturday 30 May 2015.
