On Our Doorstep


This August will be our first in Clapham and we’re more than a little over-excited that the mighty South West 4 Festival will be right on our doorstep over the Bank Holiday weekend. One of London’s best-loved dance music events, this year features an incredible lineup: Pendulum, Tinie Tempah, Deadmau5, a Groove Armada DJ set, The Martinez Brothers and Knife Party amongst many, many others.

Our large covered terrace outside our Clapham restaurant and bar at 16A Clapham South Side will be the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail or two and soak up the atmosphere.


Those who know, know that the best way to get to the Carnival over the Bank Holiday weekend is to take the tube to the outskirts and join the crowds in walking towards the route of the parade around Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Grove.

Two of the best stations without too much disruption are High Street Kensington and Shepherds Bush where it just so happens we have two of our restaurants. We may be accused of bias, but Balans Soho Society is the ideal spot to just take a moment to have a drink, something to eat and gather your energies before embarking on the hoopla.
