Garage pool hall, restaurant and bar opened its doors to the public Thursday, August 1st, 1996. It features 18 regulation pool tables and a full-service bar and restaurant.
Garage partners Alex Rosenast, Jill Rosenast, Kelly Curtis, Peggy Curtis, and Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) collaborated to create a fun facility that would draw "true" players as well as new pool enthusiasts. Every detail to Garage was custom designed and built by partners Jill and Alex Rosenast.
Garage was built in 1928 and had served as an auto repair garage until its present transformation. Garage now reflects a spacious, high-ceiling design with extensive chrome and vinyl details that are true to its automotive past. Exposed ceilings, special lighting, distinctive fixtures, and custom features transform the Garage into a one-of-a-kind venue.
Garage is located at 1130 Broadway, one block south of East Pike on Capitol Hill. Hours of operation are 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. every day. The Pool and bar area is limited to patrons 21 and over, while the restaurant is open to all ages and features a broad mix of cuisine from around the globe by Michael Nelson, plus all your American favorites.
