Jonnie: "I got a real problem that's happening right across the street. They're puttin' up a three-level disco called Diamond Sky and the grand opening is tomorrow night. It's going to attract the wrong type of clientele to the area, which is bad for my business."
Mike: "Let me guess. You want me to torch the place."
Jonnie: "Well, if a certain car were to be placed at a certain spot and had a major malfunction - I wouldn't be displeased."

Grand Opening is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Advance, given to protagonist Mike by bartender Jonnie from the bar he works at in the Red Light District of Portland Island, Liberty City.


A new bar, called Diamond Sky, is having their grand opening the next night and have plans to throw a three-level disco. This new bar will, according to Jonnie, attract the wrong kind of crowd to the Red Light District and will put his customers off. Jonnie tells Mike to take his wrecked Idaho to a bomb shop in Harwood. Mike meets Slick, who rigs the car with explosives, and then drives to disco. Mike then blows the car up, causing major damage to the bar. The police rush to the area but Mike manages to lose them by getting a new car re-sprayed at Pay 'n' Spray, before returning to Jonnie at the bar.

Post Mission Page Script

Jonnie: Mike, I'm in need of some serious firepower. Come back to the bar. Jonnie.


The reward for completing the mission is $6,000. The mission Pocket Rocket is unlocked by completing the mission.


  • This mission shares similarities with Mike Lips Last Lunch, not only by introducing the car bomb gameplay mechanic (along with 8-Ball Autos) to the player, but also using an Idaho as the example vehicle.
