Social life in Balham
One thing that a local area has to offer in order to please its community is social options, and for many people, this means dining and drinks. The Exhibit is a local institution, offering a diner which harks back to America of the 1950s but there is also a gallery, a bar and a cinema at this location.
If you are looking for pizza or Italian cuisine, you have a choice. Ciullosteria is a well-known name in the area, offering affordable options for over two decades but in recent times, Franco Manca has become a firm favourite for many local residents. Another option is Gazette Balham, which is ideal if you fancy a French twist to your meal.
There is no shortage of options for a night out in Balham with The Bedford being recognised as a leading entertainment venue and you also have venues like The Grove and the Banana Cabaret providing a wide range of reasons to get out of the house.
