After five years in downtown Spokane, Garageland, known for its late-night food and drink options and, at one point, being a one-stop shop for food, vinyl and vintage finds, announced Thursday that it is closing its doors on Oct. 30.

“Well, the day we’ve been hoping wouldn’t happen has finally shown up,” the Garageland team wrote on Facebook. “Next Friday (10/30) will be our last day open to the public.”

The post goes on to stay that staff members will be brought back over the next week so they can safely say goodbye to the space. Limited tables are available through Oct. 30, as the restaurant still has to follow pandemic guidelines.

“Thank you so much for the last five years,” the post ends. “We’ll miss you dearly, Spokane.”

Garageland is located at 230 W. Riverside Ave. Garageland is open 5-10 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
