Grand Manchester where Nightlife meets the Arts!
L & M Grand keeps getting better by offering a diverse programming schedule!
There are plans in the works to continue to bridge the nightlife, arts and community all under one roof at Grand.
There are a number of other venues open and a new one opening next door ( previously WB’s soon to be DrYnk) but Grand owner Don Maxim is confident in his product stating ” We have great relationships with businesses and various interest groups in the city. The team we have here at Grand is made up of seasoned professionals as well the young and ambitious which creates a unique and potent blend. ”
On having another nightlife venue opening right next door. ” It will bring more people to the city and this end of Elm Street there is great potential that they will come to visit us at Grand as well. We have a number of new promotions in the works to help keep Manchester nightlife interesting and original this Summer and into the Fall. ”
There are a number of watering holes in Manchester as well as nightlife options.
It will be interesting to see what the new (?) ownership and investment partners have in store at DrYnk; if the name is any indication of the theme we can expect an experienced expert bar staff mixing up and muddling original cocktails. There are a number of familiar faces already in the mix from Drynks previous incarnation as Wally and Bernie’s ( aka WB’s). The GM / Managing Partner is Thomas Svoleantopoulos of Leadergate Realty ( a WB’s manager – aka Tommy Gunn), Chef Shawn ( last seen at Amsterdam in Nashua) is back as Kitchen Manager and Exec Chef, Lisa is Wait Staff Manager and early WB pioneer Bartender Eric ( last seen at Martha’s Exchange in Nashua) is now Bar Manager. Local go to Promoters Danny D and Josh Porter are also on board. A sprucing up of the interior, sound and lights are all in the works as is an update to the outdoor area and the addition of two more pool tables. Still billed as a restaurant and late night lounge the venue promises to never charge a cover. We have heard plans of a mid week night geared to the Latin community and an extended happy hour every Friday for $10…Entertainment will be provided by various DJ’s. I for one am Looking forward to some of that great cooking from Chef Shawn!
Hmmmmm that lettering / font and coloring sure looks just like Wally and Bernies…thoughts?
We will publish more about Drink as their July opening date approaches – target date is July 14th, 2011! Good Luck!
