Balans in Soho

Balans is a Soho institution. It is a restaurant that sits at the centre of Old Compton Street - one of the most flamboyant and gay-centric streetsin the area. With locations in London and Miami, everything from Balans' addresses and cool art deco façade points to a place to head if you would like to see and be seen. Balans stays open from 08:00 in the morning until either 05:00 or 06:00 in the morning seven days a week. You can head there for either a post-clubbing signature Balans hamburger or a pre-sight seeing eggs benedict. The bar and restaurant's outdoor pavement seating and large front windows make the restaurant a perfect place to do some people watching on an exciting Soho street.
