The Garage Bar and Grill - Mission Beach

Cnr Donkin Lane and Village Green Mission Beach

If you are looking for things to do in Mission Beach. Sunday is live music day at The Garage Bar and Grill Mission Beach, the session there has become legendary with the locals. I have been playing guitar and singing there, once a month on a Sunday for the past 4 years. I think it's a great place, and I'm not the only one who thinks that as it is well known to be the  place to be on a Sunday afternoon. The session kicks off at 4.00pm and goes till 8.00pm.

Matti and Chris (the owners) are very likable people, although, that could be something to do with the $5.00 Corona's they have on special all day Sunday.. nah! not really they are good value people and they have taken the Garage from not much more than a garage (hence the name) when it first opened, to what it is today a vibrant restaurant/bar, with good music, ambient decor, timber decks and great food.

This photo was taken at the Garage - The Girls name was Cecilia and if I remember rightly we were singing "Cecilia" by Simon and Garfunkel at the time

The Sunday session itself, well at least when I'm playing, can get a bit loose around the edges, as quite often a few of my friends and sometimes people I don't know drop in and jam along with me. These jams are always crowd pleasers because the whole show goes off in a different tangent for awhile and people seem to like that. Some of the people who get up are really good too.

So if you are heading out and looking for things to do in Mission Beach why not check out the Garage Bar and Grill in North Mission Beach on a Sunday. Hopefully I might see you there and if not I'm sure you will enjoy it anyway as they always have good musos playing there. Just a good fun place to hang out for awhile. Guaranteed good time :)
