The Garage
© Sarah Koury / Entirety Labs

The Garage in Islington has been a mainstay of London’s music scene since 1993, hosting bands like Oasis, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Radiohead and more.

Following a recent change of ownership to the DHP Family (the guys behind Oslo Hackney), the whole venue has been revamped with a view to maintaining its title as one of the city’s landmark music venues.

The Garage itself has a capacity of 600, it's been restored to its former glory with an all singing all dancing sound system and a fully refurbished bar area. There’s some decent food offerings on site as well with the newly kitted out General Store and even a cheeky night club tucked upstairs, Thousand Island, decked out with mirror balls.

The Garage says
The Garage is a legendary London venue, regularly showcasing great live music and club events.

Opened in 1993, The Garage quickly established itself as the capital’s finest indie and rock venue; performing at the venue is a rite of passage for many bands. The venue has also hosted a number of underplays, with The Killers, Mumford & Sons and Suede being among some of the more recent acts to pack the venue.

Came here for an event (why else would people go there actually...) and the venue was cosy enough to be engaging but also not too loud to not be able to hear each other. The door staff were friendly and there are 2 bars for such a small place. Location is easy to find as well and is a short walk away from highbury station or a longer walk to angel. Had a good night out!
