The General Store
The General Store is a totally revamped space at the front of The Garage, a staple music venue in Highbury and Islington that first opened in 1993. Now owned by the DHP Family (the guys behind Oslo Hackney) the space offers craft beers, cocktails and coffee. There’s some industrial looking design going on, the promise of food-to-go during the day and a decent cocktail bar by night - The General Store will become a must for anyone heading to a gig at The Garage.
