    The griffin is a nice night spot if you want to sit and talk or get your groove on. There is a lounge in front with a bar. Then behind the curtain another bar and dance floor, and there is no cover!

    $1.00 PBR during happy hour at 10pm! Catch DJ Aurajin on the turntables in the back most weekends. Watch out for the "bros" who have been co-opting the place as of late. Tip Robyn and Kirstin well!

    Great bar, been loads of times and never had a bad experience. b]Great music, drinks strong and cheap (the only bar where I have had to ask for a little extra coke in my Jack D!).

    Want something different? Head back past the restrooms and there is a room playing electronic dance music. This room is usually less busy and they have a bar back there, too. Nice little spot.

    The Griffin boasts one of the best jukeboxes in all of Las Vegas. They have live music sometimes too. Great drinks and good tunes - you can't go wrong with a night at The Griffin!

    Same 'Griffin' as the sister bar in LA's atwater village on LosFeliz Blvd. This one features same decor and drinks, but its way smaller, crammed, and full of cig smoke.

    If you want to let loose on the dance floor, head over to Griffin! Great juke box and rock & roll up front - the back area has DJs and live music.

    Super smokey dive bar with hipsters galore. Awesome bar, fun jukebox, shady neighborhood. Easy to walk to several other bars in the same area.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Order the Griffin martini. Sit back. Relax. Pretend you're in Twin Peaks. Talk to someone you shouldn't be talking to. Read more

    The drinks are strong, so you always get a good bang for your buck. But don't expect to carry a conversation in here on a weekend night.

    A little smokey but a nice change from the tourist feel of Fremont st. Solid cocktails, beer list and ambiance.

    A good place to find refuge from the more chaotic places in the Vegas scene.Order two martinis, one for your baby and one more for the road.

    Place is cool! Watch out for the young black bum who swears he making it big outside at 4am who puts on a show and acts gangster while telling his Navy war stories, Oh how exciting!

    Welcome to the Griffin. You are officially too cool for Vegas. I imagine this place being what the White Lodge must be like in Twin Peaks. The jukebox is badass.

    If your name is Paul, the bartenders here hate you. Don't even bother. Turn around and walk away now. If your name is not Paul, this place rules.

    Apparently I am "too cool for Vegas" because this place is my favorite. Hipster haven. Why does my fave bar need to be out of state?
