Harrison's, the centre of wining and dining in Balham, has recently undergone a major refurbishment.

A brand new speakeasy style bar has opened in the basement of the restaurant. More room for cocktails and wine can only be a good thing.

The new bar has a different feel to the restaurant, but still has the relaxed atmosphere Harrison's boasts.

I take along a work colleague and we get set to work on the drinks menu.

We are in awe of the barman who treats his orders like artwork.

I opt for The Rose Lady - a summery mix of gin and rose infused mixers.

The barman recommends we try the espresso Martini's and it does not take much persuasion.

They are silky smooth to taste, with real coffee beans on top.

After the shot of caffeine we are buzzing and head around the corner to The Exhibit.

A bar, cinema and restaurant all in one, with the bar open until 2am at the weekend, perfect for a spot of dancing.
