I went to The Forge recently for a Cuban night, which was pretty good, with a friendly crowd and a great band playing. I was a little bit disappointed with the venue though. The space itself lacked seating, (the benches in the picture above were not there, nor the big window seats) and the bar prices were very high, yes I know it's London, but if house wine is £5 a glass, you know it's downhill on your wallet from here on. Because the place is not fancy and polished, I guess I thought the prices would be a bit more favourable. I think the problem with these kind of prices is that people just consume less and drink before at home, whereas if the house wine was just a pound or so less, I'd properly stay here longer, or come earlier. The bar staff were also exceptionally busy so getting served too ages and the loos were a bit grotty. I shall return for the salsa, but I had hoped of a slightly higher standard to this venue, which I'd heard good things about.
