Best hipster bar: The Griffin
Thu, May 26, 2011 (midnight)
Picture a medieval dungeon filled with tank tops, androgyny, cheap drinks and irony. That’s The Griffin. If you want to complain about the Las Vegas bar scene, this is the bar at which to do it. Also, come here to complain about tourists, the Strip, the mayor, and the pretty people. 511 Fremont St. Mon.-Sat., 5 p.m.-close; Sun. 9 p.m.-close. 382-0577.

With leather booths drenched in deep red tones and two fireplaces to sit around, The Griffin is the kind of place that makes you want to order something different than a Coors Light, something classier, something that you can drink out of a clean, neat glass. Regardless of what you’re drinking, The Griffin has quickly become one of the coolest spots in town to see and be seen, but not in a pretentious sort of way.
