Time Out says
A large hub of entertainment in south London that is a bar, restaurant, cinema, gallery and comedy club rolled into one. But if that's not enough for you? How about life drawing sessions and drag brunches with the queens providing the entertainment? It bills itself as a spot with ‘everything under one roof’, which sounds about right – and a lot of, fun too.
From bottomless brunching and sing- a- long boozicals, exclusive cinema and karaoke suites, weekly life drawing or dancing drag queens and live DJ's till 2AM – we're a wonderland of beautifully boozy escapades and truly unique entertainment for absolutely everybody, seven days a week.
With our larger than life atmosphere, we have a wonderful venue to match. From unique main bar area, state-of-the art studio to exclusive summer Malibu Tiki garden and boutique cinema – we offer amazing spaces for private and semi-private hire, set inside and out over three floors of our building. Plus we're situated right next to a 24 hour tube station!

The bottomless brunch is a great option for people in south west London who don't always want to trek to Shoreditch for a boozy brunch! It is reasonably priced, as nearly every bottomless brunch I've come across costs £35 or more and here it is £20 for unlimited prosecco plus one dish from the menu. We were told the chef is Italian which I think is a good sign. Our food was delicious and they are very generous with the bubbles. I will definitely come here for brunch again and will be checking it out on a Friday night for the £4 drinks for 4 hours offer.
I can find myself at The Exhibit for all different occasions: a quick coffee with a friend, a decent meal with my partner, a night out with friends and a breakfast with a bloody mary to recover! ;) It is spacious, but cosy and there's always a relaxed atmosphere. I keep on coming back!
We go more for the brunch than the pub, but the food is fantastic. The best chilaquiles I've had outside of NYC!
Great for drinks and delicious food! Really friendly staff too. Private hire spaces and quirky cinema make the Exhibit the place to be in Balham!
Not been to this neck of the woods since I left three years ago and this week, when friends suggested we meet at The Exhibit I can't say I was that chuffed to return. From memory, which admitted is a bit hazy The Exhibit was a music cheese fest with copious drink offers.
Well I did go, on the promise that there have been a few changes......and what changes!! The Exhibit is fantastic, the vibe is very current, with great staff who welcomed me like a long lost friend (of course I didn't know any of them!). Not intending to eat much we ordered a couple of the small (tapas style) dishes just to snack on. A few hours in and we had pretty much gone through the menu! The food had a very eclectic mix of flavors which went down surprisingly well with the excellent cocktails. The place has a great contemporary feel and for a Thursday night it was buzzing with activity, with a play list that made me wish it had been the weekend!
My move away from South London for North was partly driven by finding places like The Exhibit, it seems I left too soon!
Great venue, I'll be back.
I love The Exhibits mix of areas and events. You can pop in for a quick cocktail, meet up with friends after work, watch a film or have a full on night out. Oh and the staff are great!!!
Amazing venue. great party areas for special occasions. Staff are super friendly and food and cocktails are top notch!
Great venue and amazing food which changes with excellent seasonal produce, and known farmers that produce the meat.
Great place, cant recommend highly enough! Private rooms are huge and with private bars in them plus the cinema is ace!
The Exhibit is fantastic. A determined, driven transformation over the last few months, the owners behind this project have turned this venue into something that has allurement and attractiveness. Excellent up and coming area with the aberrant shadows of the passers-by meeting and mingling with one another to try the marvellous drinks on offer. True to word, an aspiring and intelligent kitchen that produces top quality varying menu's for the growing urbane community. Expressive and passionate venue, love it.
Some fantastic creative food and drink concepts.... Espresso Martinis served with Smores and the Black Forrest Gateux cocktail served with meringue is simply to die for. The Tapas selection is well varied and made by some extremely talented chefs in the kitchen.
Beautiful Food, Amazing Atmosphere, Great Staff........Enough said really.....Cute garden & Roof Terrace too!
Even though it's probably best known for being a bar, the food is incredible and their cinema it's the best place in London to watch a movie. Loads going on all of the time and super friendly staff.
