The Forge


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.
