Overview

Since opening in 2009 The Forge has embodied the vibrancy, charm, and eclecticism of Camden Town, bringing together live classical, jazz, folk, and world music under one roof with a 300 capacity - making it an intimate setting and firm favourite amongst musicians and music-lovers alike. As a not-for-profit organisation, everything The Forge receives goes back into an ever-expanding programme including DJ & club nights, comedy, children's events, art exhibitions and workshops. The Forge is an architectural masterpiece, commissioned in 2005, which has won awards from RIBA and the Civic Trust for its beautiful, sustainable design. It includes solar panels, natural ventilation systems and a stunning 6.5 metre high 'living wall' of plants designed by Katharine Bradburn. Its beautiful décor also makes it a fantastic venue to hire for parties, functions, wedding receptions and business events. The Forge Cantina is a Latin American street food residency taking place at The Forge over Summer 2015, with food ranging from Colombian arepas to Cuban sandwiches, Brazilian feijoada and Peruvian pescado a lo macho.

Had fun at the forge, great atmosphere lots of people dancing. However service was a bit slow, and the drinks offering wasn't anything out of the ordinary.

Came to check out Funk At The Forge which is their monthly funk night that came highly recommended by a friend. Could not have been more fun! Great music, great crowd, very reasonable ticket price. Can't wait to go again!

I love this place as it has such a different atmosphere compared to other bars/pubs in London. They do great music that makes you move, fab drink promotions, and a very relaxed environment where you can have a great time with your friends.
