Whether you’re just passing through or call the Tracy area home, it’s worth the time to stop by and see what The Grant Bar and Lounge has to offer.
DJ Miller, manager, CEO and co-owner of The Grant Bar, explained that the establishment is a hub for entertainment offering a night club on Friday and Saturday nights, karaoke, taco Tuesdays, fight nights, paint nights, and pool tables and darts every night of the week. There are televisions placed throughout the lounge for sporting events. The night club offers a variety of music for club goers to dance to and enjoy.
The bar opened in September 2014, and with a local vibe in mind was named The Grant Bar, inspired by Tracy and Grant Line Road. They are open seven days a week from 3 p.m. until 2 a.m. New to the entertainment lineup is the ‘Geeks that Drink’ night with specials, fun and games. Each night has something special for guests to partake in as well as enjoying a specialty cocktail or some bar fare grub including appetizers, Paninis and calzones. It is their special attraction at The Grant that each bartender has their own signature drink.
With a full bar and several beers on tap The Grant will have a Valentine’s Day special for couples and for St. Patrick’s Day they will have drink specials, Irish car bombs and plenty of green beer since everybody is Irish that day.
Bartender Victoria Wadleigh has been bartending for about nine years and really enjoys socializing with the clientele that pull up a stool at the bar. Meeting new people and getting to know all kinds of folks is one of the reasons that she fancies bartending.
There are many shots served up at the bar like Vegas Bombs, and the Nuclear Shot with Jägermeister, Jack Daniels, grenadine and Midori, which is very colorful. With Valentine’s Day in mind guests might enjoy the Chocolate Covered Cherry that actually tastes just like a chocolate covered cherry. The Appletini is always a crowd favorite at The Grant made with vodka, apple pucker and grenadine. The manager’s drink, called the STP, is a tropical storm of vodka, Malibu, melon, peach schnapps and pineapple.
Happy Hour is from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and everybody is welcome at The Grant Bar. ■
