If you are looking for a great place to throw a celebration or party look no further. The Granada in Lawrence, Kansas is a great place to throw any celebration or party. They have a large stage with many good musical talents if you do not want to book your own, as well as a full bar, upstairs seating, floor space, and a dance floor. It is a very good size in the perfect location. It is right on the center of the most popular streets in all of Kansas, in possibly the nicest town in all of Kansas. They have amazing service, very nice hosts, as well as top of the line security and set up crews. They hold concerts weekly and always draw a huge crowd thanks to the top of the line location and facility. If you are truly looking for a great place to throw a party this is it, they can accommodate both over 21 guests with alcohol, and do a very good job at giving a great time to minors while making sure no booze is served to them. There is a long line of people trying to get into this venue because it is so popular for both college students and the locals here, both of which are very nice and easy to get along with. After the party here you are in a great location to get food, go out to bars, or just walk around leisurely. It is best to book far in advance however due to the high demand of this venue, but it is well worth the wait and can easily be called one of top places to have a party in all of Kansas. It is very well known and will not let down anyone looking to have a great party and lots of fun.
This place has it all. The Sound system is amazing, and the local bands that play that are full of talent. The atmosphere was incredible, and the location was amazing. It is a great place to hang out, watch bands, or even play there, as did my band and I. This place rocks Lawrence, and is placed right in the middle, on one of the busiest streets in this town. I go to the Granada all the time, just to scope local talent, and to watch all the big shows coming through, from ICP to new age punk rock, this place takes the cake. The inside is a little grungy, but it fits the atmosphere of the typical rocker lay out.The sound blows your mind on a good day. Sometimes the sound quality is not so good, but those days are few and far between. It also has an impressive stage, that makes viewing the concert fun and enjoyable. This venue does not rip you off for tickets either. it actually is priced very fairly. I have only ever complained about a ticket price once. Over all I definitely give this venue a five out of five, and recommend anyone in Lawrence to stop by and check it out.
