The GarageThe Garage (2 July, 2014)



The Garage (GPS: 5.42294, 100.33541) is a restored building at Upper Penang Road that has been given readaptive reuse. Located at 2 Penang Road, The Garage began as a garage and motorcar showroom for British Leyland vehicles including the Morris, Austin and the Jaguar. For many years, it functioned as a car service centre. Then, in the 1980's, it was occupied by Kaliniaga, a furniture company. After the furniture company had vacated the premises, it was empty for a while a new management restored it to be The Garage.

In its present incarnation, The Garage houses period-style deco hailing back to Penang's yesteryears. Within The Garage are boutiques, bistros and specialty shops.
