The Attic - upstairs at The Garage (see below) - opens as a spill-over space when downstairs is busy. but is also a club in its own right. Small. with basic sound and lighting. it lends itself to the mix of indie/disco nights thrown here so much so that many of the nights have graduated downstairs to the tnain hall. Great place for a bit of a drink and a dance. but nothing too heavy.
