The Forge Fiestas

The Forge hosts a huge range of weekend parties celebrating the best in Latin American culture and beyond. Join us for the best in Latin and global music London has to offer, every weekend.

Why not join us for a meal as well with delicious Latin American street food from The Forge Cantina.


The Cuban Jam – Every Friday
On Fridays, Havana’s nightlife comes to the Forge. Come and party with London’s Cuban community and their friends, 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). The laid-back, casual atmosphere makes it easy to just immerse yourself in the closest alternative to actually being on the streets of Havana.

Every week a different, fluid group of musicians get together on stage, keeping the music authentic but yet with spice and variety. We also enjoy the latin beats by our resident DJ Javier “La Maquina” before and after the live band.

Get in FREE before 8, and learn a bit of salsa with our weekly salsa class. Don’t worry if you’ve never salsa’d before, there’s 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!
Free before 8pm / £5 after 8pm / £10 salsa class + free entry


Fiesta at The Forge – monthly Sundays
Every third Sunday of the month, there is a fiesta starting midday and carrying into the night hosted by Sambroso Sambroso. There will be something for everyone with a children’s party starting off the day. There will be a magic and puppet show, games, music, cake and a piñata. The perfect day out for families and friends of all ages.

Also earlier on in the day is a Cuban dance class from Dance Cuban School, learn the hops and twists of Cuban Salsa no matter what your level and ability.

As the day goes on the dancing will begin. Homemade Cuban food will be served all night, with cocktails to complement the Salsa, Son, Reggaeton and other Latin anthems. Our guest and live music changes each month, so be sure to check to see who is taking the stage this month! Later on we DJ Javier la Rosa continues the evening as our resident DJ dishing out tunes that will make you just want to dance the night away.
