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.

      Definitely in Vauxhall
      Not for the faint of heart, but if you know what you're getting into then it's a hell of a time!

      Cool place in Vauxhall
      Barcode is one of my favourite places in London to go out. It plays very good dance music and you can party there till late. It\'s not as big or expensive as some other clubs in Vauxhall but has similar type of crowd. Mostly fit good looking guys.

      Fun crowd, Dance Remixes
      I enjoyed my stop here, it's a great place to stop before heading out to the other bars or dance spots in Vauxhall. I managed to see the same people here as the RVT and Fire later in the evening, so it's clearly the first stop on night's festivities. There's a dance floor in the back, but it never seemed to get too crowded (on a Friday when I was there). The crowd was good looking and I had fun.
