The GarageThis gritty music venue in Islington is everything a music venue should be, with a low ceiling, great sound system, about six inches separating the band from the mosh pit, and a music policy that takes in all the best established and up-and-coming bands in the country. Since it opened in 1993, The Garage has been a stopping off point for many bands including The Killers, Mumford & Sons and Suede. Other acts who have passed through these doors include Radiohead, Green Day, Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Franz Ferdinand, Temples, Jagwar Ma, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Oasis, among others. In 2017 it was taken on by the same owners as Oslo in Hackney and got a refresh which included an all-day cafe and bar on the ground floor and Thousand Island, an intimate performance space upstairs, in addition to the main 600-capacity space for live concerts and club nights.
