Great customer service, clean and stylish.

Needs a better ventilation system for over 200 people partying. A better sound system for parties.

Balls Brothers Austin Friars is a large and spacious bar; quite the jack of all trades, being the perfect venue for business meetings, informal office parties or meals out with friends.

Exposed brick walls and ventilation ducts create an industrial charm which is counterpointed by cosy and welcoming squishy, brown leather sofas. Tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of the City of London, head here for a quiet lunch, after work nibbles or partying into the early hours of the morning thanks to its charming atmosphere and inherently British vibe.

Pop by to check the wonderful wine selection, sourced from some of the best regions around the world. Or choose to feast on their small but perfectly formed menu of tasty British dishes.
