“An exceptional place for entertainment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

This carefully restored theatre is a work of art and has great acoustics. We've sat in several different locations and the sound has always been very good. It's not huge so it provides an intimate feel for what's going on on-stage.

“A classic historic venue with charm, sophistication and style.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

We've been to The Granada on several occasion. We like the types of performances the venue books. It's a beautiful building with terrific architecture and style. And it's not too large. There is plenty of nearby parking, although the lot behind the facility can be a challenge to exit after performances. And the place is located on State Street, so there are plenty of dining choices nearby too. Have not gotten to try the bar just to the right of the entrance yet as it always seems to be closed when we go by, but it looks like a nice spot to grab a drink. There are of course refreshments available inside also for your people watching pleasure. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

“Give yourself a treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

It feels amazing to put on a suit and go watch a play or opera at the Granada, you feel like a big deal! The place breathes history and it's beautiful, the remodeling looks amazing. The Marquee is the bar to the right of Granada and it's a great bar for a get together before or after a play there!
