Sundown at Granada, the new beer garden and restaurant adjacent to Granada Theater, opens at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 4.

The place is open for drinks only for the first week and a half, then the kitchen opens Friday, Jan. 13.

Owner Mike Schoder named Sundown after his mom’s hometown, Sundown, Manitoba in Canada.

From the media release: “It was the place in the early 70’s where Schoder first learned to chop wood, work in a garden and drive a car, all before he was 10 years old. Water for cooking was drawn from an outside well and the bathroom facility was an outhouse. Sundown was a meeting place for the large family on the weekends, where dining together, laughing and enjoying conversation was the mainstay.”

Sundown at Granada not only has indoor plumbing, but also more than 60 beers and “farm-to-table” food. It will be open 4 p.m.-2 a.m. seven days a week.

Schoder and crew renovated the interior of the former M Street Bar, incorporating a lot of natural materials, including recycled wood donated by neighbors, which they used to create a design on the wall behind the bar.
