Balans Soho Society Opened in 1987, this branch of Balans is a Soho institution. Given a refresh for its 30th, the casual and vibe-y cafe serves uncomplicated things like burgers and fishcakes along with Happy Hour cocktails. Though other branches of Balans have popped up across London, this one stands out for its location and longevity. It has a good buzz in the day, and a great atmosphere at night - the 6am closing time making it a favourite Compton Street hang-out. Crowds often spill onto the street, especially in summer, and the large windows are excellent for posing and watching Soho go by. If, however, you want some privacy, the slinky dark interior is perfect for settling down into a hidden corner.
