DHP FAMILY, owner of  Nottingham’s Rock City (cap. 1,900) and London venues such as Oslo (370) and The Garage (600), has rebranded the 150-capacity upstairs venue adjacent to the latter.

It has also refurbished the premises below, formerly The General Store, opening the two-floor pair as The Grace presenting acts such as Caroline Spence, Theodore and Georgia Meek.

The live space was formerly known as Upstairs at The Garage and then Thousand Island.

“London is well known for its live music pubs which are institutions in their own right,” says DHP Family MD George Akins. “With The Grace, we had the perfect opportunity to combine our bar and live music space to create an atmospheric space that can function equally well for after work drinks or post gig partying.”

Alongside running multiple venues, DHP Family is also a national concert promoter and festival organiser.
