SquareMeal Review of
The Lounge at Forge & Co
Forge & Co comes on like a more egalitarian, accessible version of Shoreditch House – albeit without the rooftop swimming pool. A hot-desking hub aimed at creatives, it offers its members
serviced office accommodation, event spaces, an art gallery, canteen and a 1950s Scandinavian-style lounge, where punters can enjoy Meantime ales on tap, London Fields and Redchurch bottled beers,
numerous wines and classic cocktails such as Mint Julep. Also check out Belle of Whitechapel (Johnnie Walker Black, Disaronno, bitter cherry and Campari), Columbia Road Spring (Stolichnaya vodka,
St Germain elderflower liqueur, rose, lime, cucumber and green Chartreuse) and Silk Weave Sour (with Kamm & Sons herbal bitters and Calvados) – three locally themed libations to try with salted
snacks or mixed deli platters. Note that complimentary membership is available at the front desk, and comes with a host of benefits.
