After a tempestuous few years for London’s night time economy, it seems the climate could finally be changing for music venues.
As Village Underground revealed on Monday that it had been granted a new 15 year lease on its premises, iconic Islington music venue The Garage also announced it would be relaunching in February.
With a long and rich history within London’s live music and nightlife scene, The Garage has long been regarded as one of the city’s go-to venues for live music. Now, after extensive refurbishment, The Garage is set for a new transformation to do its reputation justice.
The music venue will also house a daytime coffee spot and cocktail bar, as well as a new nightclub and programme packed full of live concerts and immersive club nights.
Having recently been acquired by DHP Family, the dynamic team behind Oslo in Hackney and Nottingham’s Rock City, every element of The Garage will be dramatically updated. In addition to refurbishing the main music venue and adding a brand new sound system, three new spaces have also been created within the building, united thematically under the Garage concept.
It may finally, once again, be a good time for night owls.
