Very warm cozy bar. Just away from the canopy on Fremont street. It is a nice mature alternative to the crazy Vegas scene.

I went there many,many times and had a great time everytime. I loved the cigarette girls and the fire pits, but best of all the music. The tunes were ranging from early Bowie, the Ramones, the Doors to the Cure from the 70s and up - great Alternative rock. I have not eaten there only a bar patron.

Having a drink here was so much fun - I felt like I was in a pub in Middle Earth! Lots of brick, wood, fireplaces, and candlelight. Completely loved the vibe! Drinks are strong.

I always visit the Griffin when I visit Vegas, a great bar, great atmosphere and great drinks, what more can you ask for? If any thing the drinks are mixed a little strong, but I wouldn't hold that against them! Usually packed, noisy, great fun. I have always found the bar staff friendly and helpful, and would not hesitate to... More

Great little bar that's been around for a while now. I love this place. Drinks are not watered down. Service is always excellent!

Interesting decor with false brick cathedral ceilings throughout. The afternoon we were there, the female bartender didn't like being disturbed as she was chatting with friends. After a long wait with only a half-dozen other patrons, two pedestrian draft beers and a glass of mediocre wine came to $26 during happy hour -- which apparently is limited to stuff people... More

We ended up in the Griffin two nights in a row (Drinks only), it had a great vibe and a real mix of clientele from bikers to tattooed rockers to 50’s housewife look-a-likes. It was very dark and lit by candles, service was swift and the drinks where cheap. On the Friday when we were there a back room was... More

I loved all the brick work inside and the fireplaces. That coupled with a good bear selection and you could call me a happy man. The bartender that was on duty the last time we were there was cheerful, a knockout to look at and friendly to boot. Was a little slow to suggest options when we inquired as to... More

I spotted a guy taking a picture of one of the adjacent buildings and asked him what was picture worthy there. It turns out he was a semi-local guy on a tour of historic Vegas sites and the storefront there is the oldest in LV. We chatted him up for a while and then we all went to The Griffin... More

I think in another location this place would do gangbusters. The problem is that they are right in the middle of one of the hippest neighborhoods in Vegas, so the idea behind this place is a little out of place. It's designed to look like a mid evil tavern and they do a good job with that - arched brick... More
