I went to this bar as part of a bar crawl for a friend's party. The Griffin was the first bar on the route and I really enjoyed it. We were there about 8:00pm so there were only about 5 other people in the bar. It isn't one of the big fancy bars like on the strip but it's still... More

We stopped here for a cocktail before dinner and it was a great break from Fremont St. Ed, the bartender, clued us in to the establishment's own distilled whisky. It was good, but they also has a great selection of other booze and craft beer. The inside had a very old school tavern feel to it, as well.

I love this place for the cool atmosphere, different types of music and genres and variety of drinks. During the week this place is very chill and relaxed and usually plays rock music. You will have a casual environment, no problem finding a table, or getting served. On the weekends it turns into this crazy party place, inside being dark... More

I had been to The Griffin twice before and found it very enjoyable. To me, they had the best bartenders in Vegas, so good in fact, that I made a special trip from the strip to have my favorite drink which was made perfectly each time before. The only problem was this time, I was not allowed in because I... More

We found this place by mistake, but it was dark, swanky, and cool in the heat of the day. Had a great drink and enjoyed the atmosphere and other patrons. A fun place to stop in.

Music wasn't my preference, but the atmosphere was laid back and chill, we enjoyed it. We did however over dress for the location.

Read on the internet you could get cheap beer here. So when we asked the prices and where told $9 a drink we were surprised. We asked about cheap drinks as advertised on the Internet and was told this was wrong. Beer that bad we couldn't drink it.

I get that you want dress codes but you need some wiggle room. This is Vegas. I was wearing a sequin outfit consisting of pants and a bomber jacket. The outfit had the attention of all of Fremont street. When we arrived the guys at the door loved us and carded us but all of the sudden the one guy... More

I tend to visit this place more so than any other watering hole in Las Vegas. It could also be that I know so many of the people that frequent this place as well. Ha ha. The staff here is always awesome and friendly. They always make you feel like a friend of years. They all make a good drink... More
