Quite a happenin' place on weekends w/ a cool atmosphere.

Cool lounge and very packed on the weekends. Great music and dancing. It can be hard to find seating though but definitely worth the effort to hang out and have a few drinks for a bit.

Had so much fun here! Great music,, drinks and atmosphere. As soon as you walk in you are singing, dancing, and just feel like you belong. You have to check this place out. It's not crazy bump music, they play music you know, that you can sing along to and enjoy. Have fun!

Saw the reviews and gave this place a go. An absolutely nice bunch of people from the door man and the bar staff. Extensive cocktail range, good gin selection and esoteric beers on tap. We will be coming again. And again probably!

Bar setting is nice.big fireplace which creates nice atmosphere . It's out back that it got a bit weird. A very good band was playing but the lead singer/guitarist was doing her set topless. It was part of her act but I thought they were so good musically they didn't need this in their act. Ok to pop in but... More

We visited the Griffin because of the interesting reviews on this site. When we went in side there was only one other person. In the room there is a bar long one wall and tables along the other. In the middle there is 2 wood burners with small tables and sitting. The ceiling has brick arches going from one side... More

Pure class. Excellent drinks and service. Good value. Lovely atmosphere. By far better than anything on the Strip and is a sign of the downtown revival.

It's dark and the interior is like a cool old Victorian-era mansion meets castle. Good rock and roll jukebox and the happy hour (just from 5-6) is very cheap. But whenever you're there, the bartenders are very friendly and they pour the deepest drinks around. If you're lucky, there might be a little band in the back, starting at ten,... More

This is a great place to go in and relax. The fireplace was going the night we went in after visiting the Downtown Cocktail Lounge. Stayed for a very long time. Comfortable sofas, great bartender! All in all I will be going back next time I'm in LV.

I've been to The Griffin quite a few times and each time is a different (awesome) experience. I especially like going on a mid-week afternoon when it's less crowded and I can get a spot by one of the fireplaces. I'm trying to work my way through their amazing selection of beers, a task I fear I will never complete... More

Wasn't as good as many of the reviews I had read before visiting. It is funky and has minimal lighting, but if you are in the area then the Commonwealth is a better bar.
