When you don't want to be in another loud, annoying casino, walk down to The Griffin for a great time. The drinks are affordable, the staff is extremely friendly, and when they have it, the music venue is a great place to hear a local band.

Stopped in for a drink at the recommendation of a local. It felt like you were underground the minute you walked in. Interesting bar with an interesting atmosphere. Just go in..you won't regret it.

Greeted with a warm welcome. Service was great and the drinks were reasonably priced. Quirky atmosphere which I liked. Will definitely be back on my next trip to Vegas.

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.
