Live Music
Latino, Live Music
Over 18

On Fridays, Havana’s nightlife comes to the Forge. Come and party with London’s Cuban community - everyone’s welcome! - try your hand (or feet) at salsa or enjoy live music from the city’s best Cuban musicians (and others that have flown in to play).

Every week a different, fluid group of musicians get together on stage, keeping the music authentic but yet with spice and variety. You can also enjoy Cuban & latin beats from in-demand resident DJ Javier La Rosa before and after the live band.

Elpidio mixes together a rich life time of latin flavour, taking the swing from his hometown of Buenaventura, Colombia, and the rhythm of Cali, Colombia – ‘the capital of salsa’ – the tradition of Cuba and the style of New York, Elpidio with his Orquesta delivers his own blend of infectious happiness to the dance floor

Get in FREE before 8, and If you feel like an immersive latin experience then why not also book one of our combined entry & salsa class ticket for an authentic Cuban-style Salsa lesson with The Cuban School? Don’t worry if you’ve never salsa’d before, there is a whole community of people here that will happily swing and twirl (with) you. And even if you don’t know the moves later, your feet and hips will get the idea when the music starts.

What makes The Cuban Jam so special is that the audience takes part. Soon you’ll start seeing familiar faces and become part of the “Cuban Family.” These aren’t dance partners or musicians to listen to for one night, rather a celebration of many to come if you choose. The laid-back, casual atmosphere makes it easy to just immerse yourself in the closest alternative to actually being on the streets of Havana.
