Red Pocket is named after a traditional gift  in Chinese culture – red envelopes, containing money, that also symbolise good luck and ward off evil spirits. The choice of name is apt, as it’s a gift for Battersea folk who don’t mind finding their way around industrial estates via service roads to reach the riverside location. Red Pocket’s inside Hotel Verta, and right next to the Battersea’s helicopter pad. But even for those not arriving by chopper, executive chef Weng Kong Wong, who previously worked at Hakkasan, tries hard to make meals here worth the special journey.
