Look out your window. Is the sun sunshine? Good, time to make your way to The Exhibit. Thanks to their nutty mai tais and certified ‘very cute’ terrace and roof garden, this multi-storey bar and restaurant in Balham will give you that summer feelgood energy you’re looking for without you necessarily having to enter a long winded booking battle to get a table. They have a long drinks list that covers everything from pints to pornstar martinis, and for a fun birthday one-two punch you can combine drinks on their terrace with a film in their upstairs cinema room. Oh, and don’t panic if it predictably starts raining, there’s plenty of seating inside and, importantly, a massive fish tank. Snazzy.
