Average Joe’s Sports Bar has a very special “back room” called Joe’s Garage. This is where a great range of entertainment takes place. Three huge garage doors separate the garage from the main bar room. These doors can be either open or closed depending on what action is happening in the garage. Regular events include karaoke, dueling pianos and Yuk Yuks comedy club. The garage stage is also a place for concerts. It has been the scene of great entertainment from bands like Streetheart, Nazareth, The Irish Descendants and Doug and The Slugs. There have also been tribute acts, like Johnny Cash and Bon jovi, and local favorites like the Chevelles and Trevor Panzak. The Garage can also be booked for private functions for groups ranging from 50 to 140. It is a place to listen, a place to laugh, a place to sing and a place to dance. No wonder, Joe’s Garage has become a favorite entertainment venue in Lethbridge. Remember, “ What Happens In the Garage, Stays In The Garage”.
