CSI Annex The Garage

Many a startup has been launched out of someone’s garage.

The Garage is an intimate space with a small stage located on the ground floor of CSI Annex (Bloor and Bathurst). It’s a perfect venue for lectures, book launches, smaller socials, team meetings, AGMs, storytelling, brainstorm sessions… almost anything!

Your event booking comes with audiovisual equipment. You’ll also have access to gender neutral washrooms and an open-concept non-commercial kitchen within the event space.
