This is to advise everyone that The Arts Garage will resume bookings for post June 1, 2008 events. Events that were canceled during the shut-down may receive first preference, considering that new date(s) were submitted via email by Friday May 2nd. Before booking new events, it is imperative that we discuss new operational changes, some of which are mentioned below:
1. In addition to installing Sprinkler System, we have also applied for a Liquor License. We hope to have one in place by August 1st 2008 or sooner. In the interim, there can no longer be "open bar" parties. Events may be promoted as "BYOB". Promoters may provide complementary non-alcohol beverages, including cups, can sodas, and water.
2. Guests carrying drinks on wheels (coolers) and back packs will not be admitted. Management reserves the right to refuse admission to patrons carrying backpacks, coolers, and other bulk/large items.We also reserve management discretion to refuse admission when deemed necessary.
3. The addition of a Liquor License also suggests that we can only open until 2:00 a.m. We are continuing efforts to secure a 3:30 a.m. closing, but until then, the venue will close no later than 2:00 a.m., patrons must vacate the premises by 2:30 a.m.
Thank you for your time and consideration and for your continued support of The Arts Garage. Please help get the word out. Feel free to contact me at 215-806-1491 with specific questions or requests.

Arts Garage Opening June 1st
Woohoo. The Arts Garage is back at it starting June 1st. Just got this release from the director. Sadly, it won't be the same though. No more open bar parties, closing at 2 AM since they are in the process of getting a liquor license although they are attempting to get a permit to stay open late.
