Live Music, Themed Nights, Fun Time Partying
Live Music, Latino
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.

Son con Swing are the featured artists for this week. Son is the name for traditional Cuban music made famous by the Buena Vista Social Club, and was the precursor of Salsa music. Son Con Swing (Son with Swing) consists of the newest generation of Cuban musicians who have taken their love of traditional Son music and added a modern vibe.

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.
