Owner description: Since opening in 2009 The Forge has embodied the vibrancy, charm, and eclecticism of Camden Town, bringing together live classical, jazz, folk, and world music under one roof with a 300 capacity - making it an intimate setting and firm favourite amongst musicians and music-lovers alike. As a not-for-profit organisation, everything The Forge receives goes back into an ever-expanding programme including DJ & club nights, comedy, children's events, art exhibitions and workshops. The Forge is an architectural masterpiece, commissioned in 2005, which has won awards from RIBA and the Civic Trust for its beautiful, sustainable design. It includes solar panels, natural ventilation systems and a stunning 6.5 metre high 'living wall' of plants designed by Katharine Bradburn. Its beautiful décor also makes it a fantastic venue to hire for parties, functions, wedding receptions and business events. The Forge Cantina is a Latin American street food residency taking place at The Forge over Summer 2015, with food ranging from Colombian arepas to Cuban sandwiches, Brazilian feijoada and Peruvian pescado a lo macho.

Can thoroughly recommend this place as a music venue, with an excellent bar and food. We went to the Coffee and Keys Sunday morning event - coffee and tea provided before the hour long concert. The artists this morning were superb - a young pianist and a cellist with two sonatas by Beethoven and Grieg. Afterwards we were able to have drinks and food. The staff are welcoming
and the overall atmosphere is very warm and relaxing.

We attended a concert here recently and were very impressed with this place. We sat at a table and were able to order food and wine before and during the concert....all very civilised! The white chocolate bamboo log was heavenly! Service was good. Nice relaxed atmosphere. After the concert the place was transformed into a nightclub with free entry. We will definitely go again!
