Description: The Donnelly Group’s flagship cocktail taverns expansive back bar is over 9 feet high and constructed of red oak, well-stocked with the makings for the cocktails that inform the room’s drink selection. Antique seltzer bottles, classic novels and assorted oddities sit behind glass while the smooth black bartop is dimly lit by limited edition Art Deco-inspired pendant lamps. This signature 10 year old venue is complemented with exposed-bulb light fixtures that hang above the dining areas, where guests can choose between comfortable booth seating or beautiful antique chairs, restored and brought back to life from their original 1940s finishings. The Granville Room menus are focused on cocktail and fine spirit selections guaranteed to pique the interest of experienced imbibers and novices alike, paired with a casual dining menu to match the room’s warm classic feel.

“What happened ??”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

My husband and I used to always come here a couple years back. Guess they've re modeled for the worse! Not a very comfy setting. Looks cheap. Also when we walked in We were barely greeted by a bartender who stood behind his bars with his arms crossed and did not move an inch. A double vodka cost me less than a single Bloody Mary. ($10.00) how is that ??? They also don't have Bloody Caesars, just Bloody Mary's. Drinks took over 10min. to arrive and there was 3 tables in the lounge including ours. We left ASAP after our round of drink and headed to another place on Granville. Terrible atmosphere !!! Will never go back there !
