This place has a super cool atmosphere. Dark, gothic, cool interior architecture and seating. Our drinks weren’t the best (I think soda was flat) and there are no TVs so don’t go for the game. But if you want to chill and drink in a...More

This bar is about as old-school Vegas that you can find. The drinks are cheap and the bartenders are very friendly. It has a great charm and atmosphere about it. A great place for a quick shot or sipping cocktails the entire evening.

The griffin is nice and close while staying on Fremont place. It's a hole in the wall style joint with good beer and atmosphere. I prefer places with a view but no complaints about this place! Lots of other cool places nearby

This bar is right off fremont street and is really quite different from everywhere around it. It's dark and quiet but rather relaxing with fireplaces and candles everywhere. There were only 1-2 bartenders but we were quickly served with excellent drinks. Recommend it, if you...More

Great place to meet up with friends or just pull up to the bar for a drink. Good menu of liquor and beer and very welcoming overall.

It was with a small amount of trepidation I approached the Griffin as from the outside it looked very dark and a tad foreboding. I summons up the courage and walk in to be met by a very jovial doorman who asked me for ID...More
