The Exhibit


The Exhibit is a drinking + eating hub with an ever changing programme of events + flexible spaces for hire. Think of them as a youth club for adults – an informal creative space with drinks, food, art, comedy, cinema + more.

Open for a morning pick me up, to late night dancing, The Exhibit bar is Balham’s favourite drinking spot. 

Have a bloody mary in the morning, sip an after work beer in the evening sun in our garden and dance with their DJs until 2am every Friday and Saturday. Book an area for a celebration, take a moment gazing at our famous fish tank or just prop up the bar and say hello.

The Exhibit Bar has several spaces that can be reserved for parties of up to 50 completely free of charge any night of the week. They take bookings for parties of 12 or more on Friday & Saturday nights and 6 or more at any other time.

Perfect for celebrating a birthday, engagement or just a group of friends getting together, The Exhibit also have a selection of food and drinks packages that you can pre-order so your party can enjoy the atmosphere of the venue whilst avoiding the queues at the bar.


The Exhibit also features three excellent private hire options. The Studio features its own bar and private dining room for up to 50, The Gallery can host 90 with its own balcony and the Cinema is ready to welcome 28 guests for a private screening or fun-loving karaoke sessions.

The Exhibit Balham - London Restaurant Bar Review

The Exhibit Balham - London Restaurant Bar Review

Journeying south of the river is unheard of in East London, and to travel all the way down to Balham when you’re based in Hoxton is almost sacrilege. Normally, I’d agree with them, but someone reminded me that if Frodo thought the same in Lord of the Rings all the Hobbits would be speaking…
