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

Stopped here because they were friendly at door.Wanted to get feel of the new downtown scene so we stopped here,very diversified crowd.They do have some reasonable priced cocktails but you must ask,the bartender was very nice at letting us know.Plenty of seating on couches and chairs.

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

This dark and moody bar is a great find. We went early on in the evening so was a little quiet but the cocktails were good as was the jukebox. Pop in for a drink. Remember to take ID no matter how old you are,

Stopped in here for one beer before Mike Hammer and landed up almost missing the show! Very little lighting in here, fireplaces going, very quaint and different - we sat up at the bar and met people from Scotland and another local person and had a blast! The bartender was super friendly and it was happy hour with $1 beer... More

The Griffin is another Fremont spot to head to when you can't bear the sound of slots for one more minute. Dark paneled walls and booths invite. When I was undecided about what to order, the staff asked what I like and created a lovely citrusy pear liqueur based drink for me.

Sitting on Fremont and just away from the main Street action the Griffin offers up a great place to relax. We've now been on the last couple of occasions and the combination of decently priced drinks and pleasant bar staff will bring us back. The juke box list is also an uncompromising reflection of the bar itself, if you don't... More
