Description

The Exhibit is an all day 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 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...

Felt the staff dealt really well with our big party. We were late (and I apologise for this) but they didn't hassle us or get annoyed with us, which they had a right to be. Potatoes were solid and the rest of the roast decent, especially for price. Thanks very much to all who served us so efficiently! (only small criticism was that when the bill came our deposit hadn't been taken off but it's just a small thing and was sorted quickly) visited The Exhibit on 09 Jul 2017

I decided to celebrate my 30th birthday at the Exhibit because it's local, it looks cool, it's buzzing, and I love to be outdoors and the exhibit has plenty of outside space. My experience was disappointing. When we arrived I found out that I wasn't going to be in the area I had reserved for a sensible reason, but still, I wasn't told until I got there. The area I was given didn't look nice, didn't look big enough for 25 people - 3 small, round, plastic tables and about 7 chairs... in a tight little corner at the front of the venue. The manager understood my disappointment and he tried to help making the area a bit bigger and adding another table and a few more chairs. After having paid 20% in service charge on my drinks pre-order, the service I received all night was the waiter leaving the bottles on the opposite side of where the flutes where arranged. No one else came during the night to see if we were okay or if we wanted something else to drink... when we got to the bar at around 11/11:30 we were told that we couldn't have any cocktails because the bar had no ice left, my friends were really disappointed. Also the bar tender clearly looked exhausted and not very happy to be there... Also, when we asked for more flutes at the bar, the glasses we were given didn't look particularly clean, and most of them we couldn't use anyway... The music inside was good. Overall I'm fairly disappointed and I wouldn't recommend it. I only had a good time thanks to my friends, but the venue didn't really help. visited The Exhibit on 08 Jul 2017

Food was great, but service was chaotic. There was a preorder function, but it was really complicated and one of the guests accidentally closed it off, because it wasn't clear that it would finalise the entire order, not just his. Also the preorders came out after the orders on the day. Also a staff member had hair on a hair tie around her wrist when serving food. Hygiene much? So kinda average. visited The Exhibit on 01 Jul 2017

The bottomless brunch was fantastic! Our waiter was excellent and made sure we were okay and constantly topped up! As I needed gluten free bread the alteration was made with no hassle at all! My only suggestion would be that there be some kind of package for more than one course for brunch. visited The Exhibit on 01 Jul 2017

We booked the Exhibit Studio for a hen do and can not praise the staff enough for their service and the space is brilliant. Not too big, with its own bar and easy for guests to access, including less able guests in the lift. I initially wanted the room with the balcony but it wasn't available, however the Studio is better space! My ONLY criticisms are that the room gets very hot, even with fans on, and the windows don't open enough, plus the room looksout onto the yard, there is plenty of outdoor space for guests to use though. The staff were so accommodating, responding quickly to my many, many email requests, taking deliveries in the daytime on my behalf and booking us a last minute table for dinner. Thankyou Exhibit, we had a great night! visited The Exhibit on 01 Jul 2017

In general really nice. Cinema was fantastic. Private area in the mezzanine wasn't really big enough for 28 people though. There were seats for about 10 and other people kind of needed to walk through it to get to the balcony (one random person even helped himself to a bit of our food). I asked if we could open the doors next to the private area so we could spill out on that side. But nobody got back to me on that. Bar service upstairs was a bit problematic. There was often nobody there. visited The Exhibit on 24 Jun 2017

Fabulous staff and great spot - food platters were brilliant too. My only reason for not giving 5 stars is there was no air con in opur private room -at least none that was working. So lots of my guests kept having to pop out to cool down. Apart from that I had a top night . Lola was particualry brilliant helping me plan it ! Clare Clare visited The Exhibit on 17 Jun 2017

The Exhibit is a fantastic Balham venue and we had a great time, lunch and cinema on this occasion. However there are just too many staff and most of them behave as if they are having their own private party, rather than there to make the customers feel welcome and comfortable. Seriously recommend you get some genuine staff who care and understand service, rather than those who are just too cool. visited The Exhibit on 04 Jun 2017

Although the restaurant was not busy and there were several members of staff working (but not actually doing much other than chasing each other around the bar) service was slow, our order was wrong and they waited nearly 45 mins after we had ordered to tell us that some of the items were unavailable. Very disappointing, the staff were definitely having more fun than us! visited The Exhibit on 04 Jun 2017

Terrible service! It took 15 minutes for our drinks order to be taken and they sat on the bar for 5 minutes before we collected them ourselves after our waitress walked past them several times! Our order was delivered with one dish missing (the waitress has forgotten to order it according to her colleague though she was quick to blame the kitchen!) which then had to be freshly cooked. Despite the fact the delay in finishing brunch was down to our server, she still insisted on clearing the plates of people at the table whilst others were still eating despite being told we found it rude! Staff tried to make amends with a free drink and free brunch for the one that wasn't ordered but it won't be enough to encourage me to return. Went to the ladies before leaving to discover the hand soap had been watered down! visited The Exhibit on 27 May 2017

Our kiwi waiter was great and did whatever he could for our table of 11 in order to have a good time. However the food was late for a long time and some of the dishes were cold.. When the waiter was on break no one was appointed to serve our table and as we only had 1.5hr for the bottomless brunch that took a long time off the bubbly. Apart from that everything else was good.

The food order was wrong and the food was not that tasty but pricey. I got a big breakfast but didn't want mushrooms and the waitress told me that if I wanted extra beans then I would be charged. We did the bottomless bubbles and it was £20 per head and the waitress barely refilled the glasses so we could of bought a bottle and it would have been cheaper. All in all, I would not go back again as the food was poor, service was poor and it was really expensive! visited The Exhibit on 06 May 2017

I did have a really fun birthday, and it worked well having the pre-order and pay as it meant no stressful bill splitting at the end. However, I was amazed at the staff and their unprofessionalism. Someone's food got left on the bar, someone else said their food went missing so they would be unable to eat (despite already ordering and paying a week before) I would highly recommend finding a process for delivering the food from the kitchen to the table as it was a complete shambles - not to mention two staff shouting at each other right by our table. It shouldn't be that stressful for them if everything is pre-ordered. The food was also below average - dry banan bread, overcooked eggs and not what you'd expect for the price points everyone paid. Good bottomless prosecco though! visited The Exhibit on 22 Apr 2017

I've been to a number of events here, and the more I go, the more I love it. Recently discovered the cinema... love the feeling of sitting on a sofa, with the freedom to leave to go to the bar, and watching a classic film. It really is a youth club for adults!

I celebrated my birthday at the exhibit on Easter Saturday night. I was very impressed by the first class service myself and my friends received. I was given a free bottle of prosecco and we had the karaoke corner for over an hour which was a blast! The cocktails were even served in beautiful crystal cut class which was another added extra to a great night. Myself and my friends were all very impressed and we had a great night. I will be coming back very soon and using the exhibit for special occasions! Thanks again! visited The Exhibit on 15 Apr 2017

So great thank you! Room was set up looking fab when we arrived and manager was really helpful. Florence was great in the lead up too. We had to order hot drinks downstairs, this wasn't really a problem and when staff weren't as busy they were going down and making the order for us and bringing the hot drinks up which was great, but maybe this would be an area to improve?

I held my 40th birthday party here and it was a huge success. The staff were really friendly and helpful from showing me round the venue a few months ago to advising me on budgets for both canapés and bar tab to looking after my guests on the night and keeping me updated on the bar tab throughout the night. I had a brilliant night, didn't have to worry about anything. It's a great party venue! visited The Exhibit on 11 Mar 2017

The food took an absolute age to arrive, and was not of good quality (both had chicken burger) The chicken burger itself had been overcooked and was rock hard, and the chips were cold. All in all, was rather disappointed I'm afraid, especially since it was a birthday treat for a friend. visited The Exhibit on 21 Feb 2017

Thank you to the team for helping me prepare for my party. I had a wonderful night and our bar tender Max was very helpful. When my food delivery arrived I was able to add in some more food very easily. Everyone had a very enjoyable night. Thank you. visited The Exhibit on 04 Feb 2017

Fantastic, friendly staff. Cheerfully took care of every single request and the area we'd reserved looked brilliant when we arrived; drinks out chilling on ice, glasses ready, canapés and nibbles out (and delicious!) exactly at the time we'd specified. A seriously good venue with brilliant service. Florence, the Events Manager was on the ball and made sure I was happy every step of the way. I'd definitely recommend The Exhibit for a function and will be returning. Top notch. visited The Exhibit on 03 Feb 2017

The food was good, however I think the menu needs to be clearer. On your menu you state 'Bottomless brunch - £20". It doesn't explain what's included with that, what time frames are involved or even what drink you are going to get. We asked the waitress which part of the food menu was included in the "bottomless brunch" - she confirmed it was a choice of the 5/6 food options on the menu underneath "brunch" which makes sense. However when the prosecco was delivered to the table she then said there was no food included in the deal. If there is no 'brunch' included with the deal it should be really be called all you can drink processco. visited The Exhibit on 14 Jan 2017

Excellent, service started off slow and our table was not written down although booked the day before. However everyone loved it. Only slight disappointed was snacks range, and peanuts size was unacceptable for the price. Apart from that we will be regulars. visited The Exhibit on 13 Jan 2017

Waitress was wonderfull. Myself and partner joined another couple for a NYE afternoon prosecco brunch.

The venue where great to work with in the run up to the event. They always responded to emails promptly and were happy to answer questions. On the day it was a bit confusing because I was unsure of who I should speak to because there were a number of people around and my contact had originally been Florence. However the day ran smoothly and Anthony was really helpful with whatever we needed. Thanks Rebecca Humphreys visited The Exhibit on 15 Dec 2016

I booked The Gallery (private room) for my 30th birthday and was very impressed. Firstly, the minimum spend was highly competitive in comparison to other venues in the area and the email contact prior to the day was extremely reassuring and professional. On the day, the staff were highly attentive and very helpful, especially with setting up the projector and music which we had arranged. They were accommodating with me bringing balloons and a cake (whereas other venues were not), the food was great and the bartender was friendly and efficient throughout the afternoon. I was very pleased with the venue and highly recommend them! visited The Exhibit on 17 Dec 2016

The service was really good however, as we had a big table majority of our food was cold when it arrived. I thought that by pre-ordering this could've been avoided but unfortunately not. Unfortunately, majority of people on my table were too hungry to send their food back. I'm very appreciative that we got an extra 10 minutes on our bottomless prossecco to apologise so thanks for that! visited The Exhibit on 18 Dec 2016

1.AV system didn't work so video that had been put together for leaving party did not work. Someone had to go and get leads from their house which took over an hour. 2. Drinks were expensive for what they were. No tonic so paying £9 for a gin and soda was not ideal. 3. Were told at 1.55am we could have one more song. All remaining guests got in a huddle to enjoy one last moment together but someone came in and pulled the plug after a minute and said it was time to go. Not very good service considering we'd just spent £1500. 4. Door staff didn't have a clue what party was where so when guests arrived they didn't know where to send them. visited The Exhibit on 17 Dec 2016

Had a lovely time at the Ehibit. Bottomless prosecco brunch and really good atmosphere. My only feedback was that when we arrived we had to wait about 10 minutes at the door with stuff constantly walking by before someone spoke to us and took us to our table. Probably just down to business. Will be back :) visited The Exhibit on 17 Dec 2016

We attended Exhibit for our Christmas Party and had sole use of 'The Studio' which had its own private bar. We sat down for a lovely 3 course meal and the staff were very accomodating and friendly. The great thing about this private room is you can play your own music through the speakers, so after dinner we were able to move the tables, whack on some 80's tunes and dance! The mood of the room is fantastic for both dinner and partying, it has a big disco ball in the middle and it a great place to hold a Christmas do/Birthday. Anyone looking for a place to hold an event, I would highly recommend The Exhibit. visited The Exhibit on 14 Dec 2016

Bottomless brunch was fantastic and the service was on point, however the food was disappointing. I had the smashed avocado on toast and unfortunately the bread was cold, the salsa really didn't go complement the meal and there was no flavour. I also thought the menu was all the same thing, so wasn't much to choose from. Was such a shame! visited The Exhibit on 03 Dec 2016

Thanks for writing to me asking for my feedback on using the Exhibit over the weekend for my husband’s 40th Birthday party. Overall we had a great time and the novelty of the venue was very well appreciated by guests. But I thought given the fact that I worked closely with your team in putting on this party I would take the opportunity to write to you my views on the experience of planning it and my reflections regarding its execution on the night. As a starting point just to contextualise the discussion, I believe I spent a total of £890 on Saturday night at the venue. I am not sure how this measures up with other guests but I hope its substantial enough to have a point of view that’s worth listening. I found the events team (Flo/Zozo) although extremely responsive (via email) rather dogmatic. My party include a number of diverse groups who for religious reasons didn't eat either beef or pork and my husband doesn't eat fish. As a result, I found the menu on offer extremely restrictive. In fact I think much of the food that was wasted on the night (2 plates of Turkey sliders @ £15 per plate) was because the only meat option available to us was turkey which is just disliked by so many people... I found it strange that with over 1 months notice, no other alternatives could be arranged, despite our legitimate grounds for not being able to choose 50% of the menu. Secondly I was made to reorder twice the entire menu as I was given a link to a food menu that I shouldn't have been able to order from. This all could have been acceptable if the execution of the food order was not so shoddy and hap hazard on the night. The first set of food served was mostly cold. Guests complained that the tacos were rubbery. Chips which were meant to be served in the first and second sitting were served as an after thought at some random time. The second set of food was served with no plates. We had asked for the cake to be served at 11pm, but it didn't turn up. In the end we had to go get it ourselves at the point when everyone was leaving (at 12.15am) ruining a very nice surprise. Overall there seemed no one was overseeing our booking which put much of our planning I had done with your events team to waste. I was disappointed that people started complaining about the food as this was one of the main reasons we had chosen the venue. Secondly the multi-media system didn’t work very well. It kept crashing mid song. At the start both the mics were not working. I am surprised that this hadn't been tested prior to us starting. Mid way through the night the room got so hot that people started vacating. The air con system had not been explained to us and neither were we given a control. In the end we started asking the people at the party next door how they were controlling the AC as there was no staff to be found... Once getting it on, we weren’t able to shut it down easily.... All these factors are in my eyes minor and thankfully didn’t ruin the night for us, but there culmination suggests a bit of complacency which I’m sure as the GM you would like to address with urgency. I understand that the lead up to Xmas is a busy period and its difficult to get things right but when you spend time and effort planning I felt it a shame that the execution was so poor. I hope these might be addressed in future. It would certainly impact us using the venue again for a similar such occasion. Btw the email address provided of the GM doesn't work...

We went for brunch, The place looks nice but our table was upstairs and in a spot where there was direct sunlight at eye level coming in which was magnified by the steel decor in the place, which meant it was quite uncomfortable - needs some blinds or something. Also downstairs was very noisy - glad we weren't sat down there. The food was decidedly average. We had a variety of brunch dishes and I could definitely have made all of them better at home. The coffee was also not very good. Service was really great though, the staff were lovely, but overall a disappointment. visited The Exhibit on 26 Nov 2016

I went to the Exhibit on Monday with my sister to celebrate her birthday. It was a great afternoon. The staff were very welcoming and were helpful and attentive but in no way intrusive. We had Mac and Cheese as a starter, followed by Eggs Benedict with bacon and ended with the chocolate tart. All the food was delicious, especially the Mac and Cheese. visited The Exhibit on 14 Nov 2016

I hired The Gallery for a surprise 60th birthday. The room itself was nice, great to have a bar to ourselves and a projector for a photo slideshow I had put together. The staff that I had contact with over the year I took to the party were lovely. However, despite having to pre-order a week before the party and having told the venue in numerous ways what time I wanted the food to be delivered it still turned up 1 hour-1h30 late meaning some of my guests actually left the venue to find food elsewhere.... an absolute joke and so embarrassing for me. Not only that but some of the food I ordered wasn't even served. The special event I had been planning for a year and had spent a significant amount of money on was ruined. I shouldn't have had to spend my time running around trying to find out where the food was or having to apologise to my guests that it hadn't been served yet. I don't think I'll be back at the Exhibit, especially not for an event, and would recommend finding somewhere a bit more organised if you're looking to host a big party. visited The Exhibit on 06 Nov 2016

Thank you for taking the time to get in touch & for leaving your review concerning your visit on Sunday 6th November. I am very disappointed to hear that there was a delay on your food during your event, and apologise sincerely for spoiling your event in any way, and for the unnecessary stress this may have caused you. On looking into the issues on the day, it appears that the team initially held back the food slightly in order to wait for the organiser to be present, this then causing a knock on effect which delayed the service of the food coming out all together. Whilst I understand this should not have happened, the team at the time thought they were doing the right thing in waiting for everyone to be present before serving the food to your party. We pride ourselves here on providing the best quality service and experience for our guests, serving large large events and parties here every week. You can rest assured that the issues you encountered on the day have been fully dealt with to ensure such an incidence doesn't occur again. Once again, our sincere apologies for the shortfall in service on your event, and i do hope you will take us up on our offer to come back down in the near future
