Come together for a night of specially crafted cocktails and smooth Jazz at The Forge, at the heart of Bristol’s old town, set to the backdrop of the city lights.
£15: Admission and Welcome Drink
The Forge in Bristol is a unique, old industrial space, originally a coach house and then a working forge up until the owners, Si John and Silkie Lloyd, renovated the space in 2015. It sits high above the old Bristol city centre on huge Victorian buttresses with a view of St. Johns Gate and the old city wall. Sensitively renovated, The Forge holds onto its historic provenance and its recent additions feel like they've been there forever.
