The Forge is an award-winning, acoustically-designed music & arts venue in the heart of London’s Camden Town.

Housed in a sustainable, architecturally-designed building, The Forge shares the space with on-site restaurant The Forge Cantina. 

It's a unique and flexible space that creates a vibrant atmosphere in which to enjoy the best in latin fiestas, world music, reggae, funk, soul, jazz, indie, acoustic and more. With a capacity of up to 300 and seating up to 100, the Forge offers an intimate experience of performances, not possible at larger venues.

The Forge has an incredibly diverse line-up that is constantly changing and evolving. Currently they host anything and everything from weekly Cuban Salsa nights to spoken word and jazz-fusion music, presenting both established and up-and-coming new artists side-by-side. 

With something for just about anyone, come and visit us today for an exciting night out, some mouth-watering South American Street Food, an exquisite collection of spirits or a eclectic mix of music and events.

Went to the Forge for the first time to see Tony Dudu during the Jazz Festival. Really enjoyed it. The Bar staff were very friendly and the venue was large yet intimate, great sound. Nice crowd.
