Forge is the perfect City escape for professionals who like to party. Located on Cornhill just moments from Bank, this is a bold venue that brings lively drinking, dining and dancing to the city.

A striking place kitted out with stripped back brickwork and luxurious leather booths, Forge offers the perfect backdrop to any occasion. With an open plan restaurant serving up sizzling meats, and a casual bar with beers on tap and a decent selection of cocktails, Forge suits everything from a quick lunch to after work refreshments, or a meat-feast at dinner time.

Open 'til 3am (Wednesday to Friday), head downstairs and join the party with a lively crowd out to play on a school night. The Cocktail Lounge is the perfect place to catch up with friends whilst listening to some old school pop, or head next door to the Club Room if you want to show off your moves on the dancefloor.

Also available for Private Hire throughout the week, Forge is a one stop shop for all corporate events, hosting many of the City banks conferences and quiz events, as well as an array of private hires on the weekend such as engagement parties and birthdays.

    Make yourself comfy, for a meat-feast is on the horizon. Pick between steaks, chicken, ribs and loads of side plates too, and don't forget to leave room for dessert.
