Although we are not gay, as we work nearby we sometimes go to Balans in Earls Court as a post work venue, most recently this week. The venue is friendly, confortable, and the waiting staff are always helpful, welcoming you as thgough you were old friends. The happy hour cocktails make them good value and there is a wide range, although it is a shame mojito's are no longer included :(. We all had dinner and the food was lovely as always. The burgers are huge, with giant chips, and the tuna was perfect (I love mine 'blue'), although it would have benefitted from a side, such as rice or a salad being included. For once we also had desert and all picked the brownie, with pistachio ice cream which was delish! There was also a live band, which we havent had before, so were looking forward to the extra entertainment, but sadly they left a lot to be desired and what was billed as jazz sounded more like untuneful noise. However, the band were not loud and did not detract from a very enjoyable evening.
Will continue to visit and enjoy this venue
