About

WE ARE BLACK FORGE—
A deep, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us thus far!
We're a metal coffee shop/music venue located in the Allentown neighborhood of Pittsburgh, where we currently rent our building. Since opening our doors in 2015, we’ve hosted over 900 events like shows for local and international musicians, art exhibits, community forums, drag/burlesque and variety shows, pop-up brunches, etc.

We’re here because our LIVE event space is in danger.

As we mentioned, we rent the bottom floor of the building where our shop is. We’ve been growing, but we’re only able to get so big, and be so loud. We’ve recently been told we’re gonna need to KEEP THE NOISE DOWN (there are bedrooms literally above the stage area), so to remain the good neighbors that we ALWAYS aim to be, RELOCATING the venue is our best option.

We have a solution. WE NEED TO OPEN A BIGGER/BETTER SECOND LOCATION. Yes, we’ve been growing and we want to provide even MORE of a support system for the local events community. We have our eye on a building in McKees Rocks (that doesn't have bedrooms anywhere near the stage), but the man at the bank needs us to put down more money than we currently have on-hand to secure the new space.
They’re not giving us a ton of time and we simply can’t sit through one more meeting where someone tells us we’re too risky. We wanted to see if all you beautiful people would help us get this new location off the ground. In turn we PROMISE to continue to dedicate our time and hearts to keeping BOTH shop doors open so ALL of this wonderful art can continue to happen in TWO lovely Pittsburgh neighborhoods!

In some cases, we are the ONLY VENUE that bands can afford to play at, and we've given HUNDREDS OF MUSICIANS a stage in which to share their art and start their careers. We don't want that to go away now (or ever) and with your help, we can...
