The worst of the WORST! – YOU MEAN I HAVE TO GIVE THIS PLACE EVEN ONE STAR?!? I live in the neighborhood of Forum and have frequented the bar for over a year now. The bartenders are always good company so I continued to go there. Not any more money in this hole. On few occasions that I've ordered a Jameson it has been anything but. I asked more than one bartender what it was that I just drank because it tasted like bourbon. The bartenders, to their credit, informed me that the owners make it a REGULAR PRACTICE OF REFILLING THEIR TOP SHELF LIQUORS W/ LOW PRICED SUBSTITUTES. Why on earth would anyone replace an Irish whiskey with bourbon?? Because its the same color?? Its just plain idiotic but with the Jersey Shore wanna-be's that frequent Forum I'm sure few are aware since they're too busy puking everywhere.
Which brings me to that terrible odor you smell upon arrival surprisingly is not stale puke from the previous night but the unmistakable scent of decomposing rodents which never seems to dissipate. While I'm on the subject of infestations I'll mention the lucky customers next to me who received a free round because of the cockroach that scurried across the bar. Don't worry; the bar-back killed it.
Next, whoever promotes for this bar should be tossed out with the trash that he brings in. Always jammed packed with wanna-be tough guys and cheesy 19 year old girls who actually like the junk the DJ's play because they're too young and wasted to have anything that resembles taste.
The owners of this dump should be embarrassed to have their names attached to Forum. The "B" rating in the window only reinforces the fact this place will soon be condemned and be used as a toilet for the homeless. Judging by the smell I'd say its already happened. I guess it doesn't matter much to ownership since they're making a killing serving kids $12 Patron shots that are in all likelihood the CHEAPEST tequila they could buy in bulk.
WELL DONE FORUM, YOU'VE SUCCESSFULLY CREATED AN OVERPRICED BAR NONE. BRAVO!
Good Prices/ Great After Work Spot! – Forum is located right in the heart of Union Square so you have no reason not to go there. Large flat screens behind the bar for whatever game is and at night this place gets bumping. Booked a party for free with AccessGotham and even though the place was packed we got in right away. Bouncer asked us what party we were there with and open seasame. Bartenders hustled and were friendly and this place is awesome when there's a good game on. Will be back the next time I'm in the area...probably this Friday.
Great Birthday Party/Better deal! – In December I threw a 30th bday party for my friend at Forum on a Saturday and it was incredible! The music was top 40, so, there was a lot of dancing, and the scene was a good mix of people...not all out of towners or college kids. It was a little crowded, but we were able to avoid the annoyance of being stuck in the middle of the floor, so, there was minimal shoving and pushing. What made the experience so GREAT was the fact that I booked the party through this website called Birthdaybottleservice and since our party size was around 40 people everyone got in all night, no issues, and, more incredibly, we got a free table and bottle of vodka with mixers! It was crazy, we literally showed up and gave them the bday party name and within a few minutes we were whisked to the back of the club, they kicked out a group of loungers and brought in our drinks. It was a very VIP-ish experience! I was impressed that they not only honored the deal, but that they treated us like we paid the full price for a bottle. Anyway, I can't say enough good things about my experience at Forum, definitely a great party spot!
No Better Place to have a Birthday! – I had my birthday at Forum last month and overall it was A+. From the minute my friends and I walked into the place until we left the service was top notch!
Our party was a decent size at 17 people, and the door girl was extremely friendly and everyone got in with free cover. We booked our reservation through AccessGotham. com and I had a list at the door with name.
Once inside the manager Brian tossed my friends and I several comped drink tickets. He was very nice and personable and everyone felt at home. This is the kind of personal service that NYC nightlife lacks.
The DJ was great and he was playing all my favorites. There was plenty of room for my friends to dance and relax. Thank you Forum and AccessGotham providing terrific service for me and my friends!
Great Birthday Venue – I recently celebrated my 22nd birthday at Forum. My friends and I had an absolutely fabulous time. One of my girlfriends recommended Forum as one of her friends recently had a bday there as well. She also said to reach out to AccessGotham to help plan the event, which they did and everything went extremely well!
The bartenders were super and made great drinks. The DJ was superb too, and was spinning all the newest hits. All in all another great bday celebrated in NYC.
Really Fun!!!! – I celebrated my birthday at Forum last year and it was really fun! My guy friends could sit and hang out while the girls (and the guys who wanted to) danced. It was a great mix of a club/ bar scene. I planned my party through AccessGotham so I got right in with no cover! I highly recommend Forum. So much fun!
Worst bar in the city – I don't think I've ever come across ruder bartenders. I got the open bar for my birthday and gave a friend my drink because I didn't like it. The manager came over and threatened to throw me out and told me that my open bar was over (half way through.) Definitely never going back.
