independent wine bar and restaurant in Balham

The Balham Lounge is an independent wine bar and restaurant located just minutes from Balham Station, bringing you an eclectic range of fine wines, craft beers (both bottled and draught), cider and speciality spirits.

We offer informal drinking and dining in a relaxed atmosphere.  Our sharing-based menu comprises a selection of modern European dishes and promises something for all appetites.

In addition, we host events such as wine tastings and acoustic music nights in our cozy basement.

We look forward to welcoming you very soon.

 

We have a selection of over 30 wines, including familiar favourites and some slightly more unusual varieties.  The choice of wines available by the glass rotates regularly so you have the chance to taste wines that you might not have tried before.

Look out for our special wines of the month.  We buy limited cases of these and when they're gone, they're gone!

In addition to our wines, we serve Meantime London Lager, Meantime London Pale Ale and Aspall Cyder on draught, have a selection of bottled craft ales and offer a carefully chosen range of speciality spirits.

We have various events taking place at the Balham Lounge, from music nights to wine tastings.  Keep an eye on this page for details.

We are also available for private hire if you would like to host your own party.  Simply drop in and see us or get in touch via email.

This September we are celebrating New Zealand Wine!

Not only will we be offering a selection of fabulous New Zealand wines in addition to our regular list, but we have a tasting planned too.

Wine tasting evening: Wednesday 7th September

Renowned New Zealand wine expert Tom Maling will be joining us for an evening of tasting and learning about New Zealand wines.  He has over three decades of experience in the beverage business and spends almost half the year travelling the globe educating people.  We are delighted that he will be joining us to share his experience and knowledge.  In his own words: 'New Zealand's unique maritime climate means that we are blessed with unparalleled fresh fruit flavours, for both our red and our white varietals'.  We couldn't agree more.

Pre-booking is required for this event.  Tickets cost £25 per head which includes all the wine you will be tasting and some sharing boards from our main menu.  Numbers are limited so don't delay!  Simply make your booking at the bar.

To find us, turn right out of the main entrance to Balham Station.  Walk down to the lights, turn right under the railway bridge and we are a few yards ahead of you on the corner of Bedford Hill and Oakmead Road.
