Forum Waterford opened in 1990 and has been operated ever since by a locally owned company, which has developed the former cinema building into a modern and contemporary premises housing one of Ireland's best Bingo Clubs as well as a renowned off-licence and a restaurant that any city would be proud to have.
The Forum has continually changed throughout the years and the owners always strive to create the best offering possible and something that is unique to Waterford City, a place they are proud to live and work in. Innovation, as well as being the very best at what they do, is the main policy of everything in Forum Waterford!
Originally opened for business in 2001, the shop was greatly expanded and turned in to Waterford City's most modern, as well as largest, independent off-licence, which it still is today.

David along with his son, also David, are running the restaurant floor and are joined by head chef Neil McEvoy (also formerly of The Wine Vault) in the kitchen. It really is a family affair with David’s two daughters Sarah and Chloe assisting in the restaurant and another daughter, Ceara who has recently returned from the well known Waterfront Restaurant in Ipswich, assisting Neil in the kitchen.

Originally a Cinema, Forum Waterford opened after major renovation on April 1st 1990 as a 1200 seated Concert Hall which went on to host top Irish and International stars such as Jonny Cash, Billy Connolly, The Corrs and Van Morrison. Regular Bingo Sessions were also held several nights weekly from the beginning.
In 1993 a licenced bar was installed and late night clubs started to be held every weekend. An adjoining premises was acquired and in the Millennium Year more extensive renovations took place separating the premises into 3 areas which now operate as a modern 500+ seated Bingo Hall - 'Forum Bingo Club', a contemporary off-licence - 'Next-Door, Forum Waterford' and a Georgina Campbell's recommended restaurant - 'Dennison's'.
Forum Waterford celebrates 25 years in business in 2015.
