Luiz's Garage is most likely Luiz's home, judging from one picture in the credits of Rio, it may also be a workplace of Sylvio, who may be Luiz's owner (which would explain it's unmaintained appearance and lack of recent human activity). It is a mechanic shop, and thus contains multiple tools. It is located in the Santa Teresa Neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro.
When Blu and Jewel are led to the garage by Rafael, Nico, and Pedro, they meet Luiz. Rafael managed to convince him to take the chain holding the two macaws off, despite his disliking of Jewel's insults. The plan involves using a table saw to cut the chain. The plan fails when Luiz slips on his own drool while pushing the two towards the saw, causing the two to panic, which sends them flying (or at least, trying to) around the room. Luiz unintentionally catches the chain in his mouth, causing his drool to lubricate the cuffs, setting the birds free, which moments later paves the way for Blu and Jewel's argument, causing the two of them to abandon each other.
Rafael, Pedro and Nico use the garage to hold auditions for the Carnival show. When Kipo entered, Luiz greeted him, but he slipped on his drool and crashed, and Luiz told him to walk it off. During the auditions, they listened to Eva's singing, that was so terrible, the glass bottles and light bulbs shattered. Pedro and Nico were disgusted, but Rafael immediately congratulated her. As she left, Blu flew in on them, they assume he wanted to audition but he didn't. Blu told them that he and his family were going to the Amazon. The group then head to the garage's roof to talk, where they end up scaring Blu with what they knew of the Amazon.
