COMING SOON Possibly as soon as this September, the reopening of The Granada (a Leal Project in Morgan Hill) will provide an array of musical offerings. Plans call for an entertainment venue that can accommodate up to 300 people for music, comedy shows, bands, dancing, fashion shows, weddings and special events. The completely redone Granada will be a dinner hall, music and theater venue. Frank Leal describes it as a “modern rat pack” location that will have “style and class.” The dinning component of the Granada will be able to serve three-and-four course meals. Further down the road, The Stomping Ground in Gilroy and the hotel that will be built by Leal in Morgan Hill will also have music components.
