The Allman Brothers Band's 1970 live album Live at Ludlow Garage: 1970 and N R B Q Live at Ludlow Garage was recorded at the club.
The garage was open from from October 1969 until its closing in February 1971. Although no longer a concert venue, the original garage still stands and currently houses a restaurant, yoga studio and an Ace Hardware store in the original concert space.
The Ludlow Garage re-opened October 29th, 2015 in the basement of the previous building and hosts live music. The upper floor remains a restaurant.
