The Forum, one of the few lounges in Union Square territory, brings peace during the weekdays and boisterous partying on the weekends. Saturdays, for example, require plus-sized bouncers to monitor the swarms of cocktail-craving, dancing citizens. Come Monday, however, the 50-foot mahogany bar, columns, and antique white-stone bricks are experienced by a wholly different sect of people. By this, we mean sports fans: the ancient interior comes second to those plus-sized, flat-screen TVs.
