Named one of Esquire Magazine's ‘Best Bars in America’, Griffin Bar is located in Las Vegas' newly resurgent East Fremont district and offers a welcome change from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas’ central Strip district. Popular with casino industry insiders and in-the-know locals, the Griffin has a reputation for strong, well-crafted drinks--martinis are the house specialty--and an unpretentious vibe. With a stark, stony exterior, an ornately carved bar, and multiple interior fire pits, Griffin bar manages to pull of the seemingly unlikely combination of medieval meets modern interiors with a vaguely British vibe. The dimly-lit lounge bar serves as both an after work pub and a late night haunt for the indie crowd, who can be found playing classic tunes on the jukebox until late into the night. Griffin Bar won’t go out of its way to dazzle and impress you--which, in this city, is impressive in its own right.
