Henrique Sá Pessoa, one of Portugal’s most celebrated chefs, will launch JOIA, an Iberian restaurant and bar at the new art’otel London Battersea Power Station later this year. Situated over the top floors of the first art’otel to open in the UK, JOIA will comprise three distinct spaces, a 15th floor restaurant; a bar on the 14th floor; and a rooftop bar with infinity pool, all overlooking the iconic Battersea Power Station.

Chef Sá Pessoa owns the two Michelin-starred Alma and the relaxed trans-Iberian tapas spot Tapisco in his native Lisbon, and he is the Executive Chef at the critically acclaimed ARCA restaurant (located in art’otel Amsterdam).

His new venture will be an exciting new destination dining spot for London, offering unpretentious yet innovative dishes and warm service in a relaxed, lively setting. Guests can feast on a menu that highlights Sá Pessoa’s culinary heritage and travels across the Iberian Peninsula, showcasing his vibrant, fresh takes on traditional dishes using the best of British and Iberian produce.

The menu at JOIA is particularly influenced by the robust flavours and techniques of Catalonia and Portugal, with a focus on seafood, pork and rice. Dishes will include grilled carabineiro, creamy orzo bisque, tomato, coriander and salted cod crudo, pickled onions, tomatoes, olive oil caviar, with many dishes finished tableside for an engaging dining experience set against a dramatic backdrop of the London skyline.

Set across the 14th floor, JOIA bar will be one of the best cocktail lounges in the capital, offering creative drinks that celebrate Iberian spices to complement the striking floor to ceiling backdrop. Cocktails will sit alongside a broad list of handpicked Portuguese and Spanish wines, with a particular focus on lesser-known producers. Vermouth will also play a significant role in the drinks offering.

Henrique Sá Pessoa, Concept Chef JOIA, said:
“It is such a joy to return to London having trained here in the brilliant emerging scene in the 90s. I love this city and I can’t wait to cook and share with the guests my take on authentic Portuguese cuisine.”

Daniel Pedreschi, Regional VP of Operations United Kingdom, art’otel said:
“It will be an honour to fulfil the potential of this exciting new neighbourhood and build a destination restaurant that attracts guests from far and wide. We are very ambitious with this project and look forward to welcoming guests in the coming months.”

Sam Cotton, Head of Leasing at Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC), said:
"It has always been our aim to bring a vibrant and diverse mix of cafés, bars and restaurants to this exciting new riverside neighbourhood for London and this is evident in the strong offering already open in Circus West Village, the first chapter in the regeneration of Battersea Power Station, and those set to open inside the Grade II* listed building and on Electric Boulevard from this Autumn. Adding a chef such as Henrique with an exciting new restaurant concept to the mix is fantastic and is sure to strengthen our position on the culinary map of ‘must visit’ dining hotspots in London."

The menu at JOIA is influenced by the robust flavours and techniques of Catalonia And Portugal, with a focus on seafood, pork and rice.

About Battersea Power Station
Battersea Power Station is one of central London’s largest, most visionary and eagerly anticipated new riverside neighbourhoods. The £9bn regeneration project is delivering a vibrant, mixed-use destination offering a community of homes, shops, restaurants, offices, culture and leisure venues, as well as 19 acres of public space, all serviced by an extension to the London Underground Northern Line.

The Battersea Power Station project covers 42 acres and includes 3.5m sq ft of mixed commercial space, together with 4,239 new homes.

The successful regeneration of Battersea Power Station is creating 20,000 new jobs, generating long term career opportunities for local residents. A new NHS medical facility is also being built.

The Grade II* listed Power Station, the second phase of the development, opens to the public from this Autumn, housing over 100 shops, restaurants and cafes, events venues, a unique chimney lift experience offering 360-degree panoramic views of London’s skyline, new office space and 254 new residential apartments. The first residents moved into the Power Station in 2021.

Circus West Village, the first chapter of the regeneration of Battersea Power Station, is already a thriving riverside destination and home to over 1,800 people. Offering an eclectic mix of independent and design-led bars, restaurants, shops, fitness and wellbeing facilities, a cinema, a theatre and an ongoing events programme, this new neighbourhood welcomes over three million people on average per year.

The third phase comprises Prospect Place and Battersea Roof Gardens which together form Electric Boulevard, London’s newest high street. Prospect Place is the first residential project of globally renowned architectural practice Gehry Partners and Battersea Roof Gardens, designed by Foster + Partners, will house new residences, terraced retail and leisure offerings, and a 164-room art’otel, the brand’s first to open in London.

With the recently opened Zone 1 Battersea Power Station Underground station on the Northern Line Extension, the development is only a 15 minute journey from the West End and the City. It also has its very own Uber Boat by Thames Clippers pier and is a 15 minute journey from Embankment, 20 minutes from Blackfriars, 30 minutes from Putney and 40 minutes from Canary Wharf. Battersea Power Station is easily accessible by bus, bike, car and train too.

Management of the development is being undertaken by the British-based Battersea Power Station Development Company.
