Emby purchased the business, when it was called The Red Garnet, from the former owner in 2014. It is one of the last remaining small music venues in downtown Peterborough, featuring local and touring artists.

The new owners plan to open a new British-style pub called Crook & Coffer in the location in 2022. The new venue will continue to offer live music.

Emby writes The Garnet will still be available for private parties during the month of December, and all previously booked live music dates will be honoured.
