Its heyday may have been the grunge and Britpop eras, when it ushered bands like The Jesus Lizard, Teenage Fanclub and Echobelly through its doors, but this north London venue's closure (for three years up until 2009) allowed time for the historical dust to settle, while a £1 million refit – which included removing the false low ceiling to reveal the original high dome, and installing new toilets – gave it a new lease of life and made it far more punter-friendly. The capacity of the main room is around 600, while its sibling venue, Upstairs at The Garage – with its own entrance, the next door down – holds around 150 and saw the very first London gig by Jeff Buckley, no less. Adjacent to the Garage is the aptly named Mini Bar, which has a late licence and takes overspill from the main room.
