Its been awhile since Ive went, but the mashups are worth the trek from San Jose to CA . Always stay for the midnight show- whether its burlesque or an aerial dancer! Dont order the on special dirty Shirley... had it more than once and its super gross.
A great place to spend a weekend night dancing! Salsa and bachata classes going into the social dancing at night. A restaurant on the second floor overlooking the main dance floor. Live music every now and then to dance to! An enjoyable experience whether you are a beginner or an advanced Latin dancer! Something for everyone!18 and older are able to dance at night. The also play reggaeton music at the outdoor bar which is nice.Highly recommend!
I love the vibes! It feels very comfortable, music is always on point! Friendly people and it’s just a perfect place to go to if you simply want to enjoy spanish music and dance. So great
Have you ever heard of a wine The Granada LA ?! Neither did I! This is the first time I had their Grape Drank aka wine . There is multiple flavors like peach, watermelon, orange The Granada LA OG and strawberry. I had the peach one, but I was disappointed that it was just original flavor with peach syrup. I did like they have a sparkling tap you can get yourself! Beats asking the bartender for water!The Granada LA
Old dragon bar in younger days...new The Granada LA...keeping the layout similar...outdoor caged patio...inside bars and small dance floor...double scotch, jack and coke and screwdriver $thirty....little wiggle and chat with the crowds...two jack and cokes, and rock star vodka $twenty-six...sipping drinks outside...inside quite loud with music bumpin...pictures and chat...cheers and drinks...havent been to a club in years!...tired!
I visit this special restaurant often as I like the special atmosphere that is characterizes this restaurant. The personel is awfuly cordial and qualified. The service is awfully fast. Also, the food you get is first-rate. I came more than once and I was always satisfied. The cost is decent. I highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
The intro salsa class on Friday nights is pretty good. They teach the basics: right turns, crossbody, and basic step. It costs $15 dollars and you can stay the night and practice with a live band. Best to bring your own practice partner. If you buy the 6 class punch card for 68 dollars, it comes out to ~11.50. I think its a good deal. One thing to note, if you are a total beginner, come at the start of the month. Its a progressive class and it gets harder later in the month. They dont tell you this on the website.I give it 4 stars. Minus one star because I bought a drink at the bar and when I went to throw away some napkins one of the workers grabbed my drink and threw it away. I was only gone for 10 seconds. They wouldnt give me a refund or replace my drink.
I went there today and I was there for 10mins and I didn’t like it because there were people 3X or 4X older than my age And nobody I could relate and everybody has already a partner it’s mostly people in their 40s or older.. i wanted to get a refund but I didn’t get a refund even though I was there only for 10 mins and I don’t know they didn’t give refunds because the refund letter is so small..
I was invited here last night by a co-worker and I will be back. The energy here was great. I loved seeing everyone dance and have a good time. I will need to brush up on some moves and stretch next time I come here lol.PS... the live band was amazing
Best Salsa in L.A. for salseros! Best music & crowd!
A good club for downtown CA . It had a good mix of ppl and the drinks were good too. I like that they have different music upstairs and downstairs
First time here on a Tuesday, which was their Taco Tuesday nights. 9pm is when the social dancing starts.The venue has 3 floors. The main floor has high ceilings and balcony lookout on the 2nd floor. The 3rd floor has smaller rooms for classes. The main dance floor is quite spacious and has a full bar.They have a few classes that start before 9pm. I came at 8pm to take the salsa 1 for beginners class. It was $15 to drop in for the class. They also had advanced classes available.After my class, 9pm the social dancing started. Most of music was salsa and the occasional bachata and merengue. There were so many people willing to dance so you should have no problem finding someone to dance with. I saw one girl that didnt know how to dance at all and the guy went slowly and taught her some advanced moves. In general the people were nice here.Parking is free across the street in the parking garage. It will say 4 hours max but I dont think anyone cares.
Never danced so many styles in my LIFE! Amazing Amazing place worth more than the cover. Band was great and lessons were great and the advanced dancers knew their stuff. LOVED IT!
Great place for Latin style dancing. Hard to find parking though.
GREAT PLACE FOR A WEDDING RECEPTION! We discovered The Granada LA while taking dance lessons for our wedding and fell in love with the classic architecture and friendly staff! It turned out to be the prefect place for our fun and fancy-free wedding reception! Kristy and her staff were great to work with - arranging the space to fit our needs and working effortlessly with our budget and time constraints. And the street tacos were so amazing! :). This is also a great place to go and get your groove on during the weekend. We cant recommend The Granada LA enough!
I come all the way from Orange County just to see DJ Picoso whenever hes working here. I would definitely go more frequently if he was offered to play there more. Thank you for acknowledging my request of having DJ Picoso featured at The Granada.
Enjoy your windows and stained update.
Love the ambiance... I recommend the salsa lesson before the club, its really fun. The second floor has a restaurant where the food is pretty good and the drinks are great.
Interesting night club with performances and social dance competitions. If you really want to dance not be harassed by overly drunk people this is a good environment. Two rooms and a patio gives you salsa, bachata and hip hop/rhythm music. Plus theres a free parking garage across the street so you dont have to walk far.
I went this Friday and dj picoso was a great dj I had fun when I was there has great music
LOVE LOVE LOVE The Granada LA, located at 17 South First St. in Alhambra, is a Three-story entertainment venue decorated in tasteful and timeless 1930′s style. We have elegant ballrooms available for rental for your wedding reception or other formal event.The Granada LA is the home to a Ballroom, Latin & Salsa dance studio with Los Angeles hottest salsa dance instruction. We offer several nights with live entertainment and dancing to show off all you have learnt.
The right place to dance the night away. Lots of attractive young people.
Only reason why 3 stars because the dj outside patio was super horrible. How can u play like 4 5 songs 3 4 times??? Theres plenty of music out there and he threw the vibe out the window. Hope u guys make a change. My group had fun but complained bout the music
If youre new to LA good place to socialize under the pretext of learning to dance
Great place. dancers r students who perform their hard work.
Loved salsa and bachata at this dance club. Cover wasnt too expensive, and there were lots of people there for the great music. Drinks werent cheap, but not too expensive either.
All night dancing Cuban style, great evening experience.
Wow,This place is AMAZING Im so glad I came tonight and To top it off I got to hear The Fabulously Talented Soul Singer LINA perform her song Smooth & Feel the LoveShe is ABSOLUTELY Beautiful and can SAAANG Her tail off..Sista gotz soul,And the food was great.Cant wait to go back and get my Step own...Ayyye!!!
