You haven't done a night out in Soho right 'til you've capped it off with pancakes at 5am

Closing time, and you swagger out of your party bar of choice into the buzzing Soho streets at 3am. Now what? Now you hit Balans No.60, the iconic late-late night spot on Old Compton Street which has been an institution since BarChick was a twinkle in her mama's eye. And good news: it's open til 5am!

This place is kinda famous for its Pornstar Martinis (there are more served here than pretty much anywhere else in London), so embrace your inner hun and get involved. They've levelled theirs up with a shot of Moët Chandon on the side - no Prosecco over here, honey. Got that end-of-the-night hankering for a plate of something bad-ass? Time to hit up their infamous pancakes; they're as stacked as Arnie and loaded up with more sauce than a gossip column. That should keep the hangover at bay for a bit longer.

It's not just the early hours when this place kicks off. Rock up on a weekend with your homies and get stuck into their all-day brunch. BarChick got down and dirty with the togarashi-marinated fried chicken doughnut with Japanese kewpie slaw, pickles, and gochujang ketchup. That's the kinda naughty we're all about at 11am on a Sunday.
