A much-loved venue of industry folk and tourists alike, The Griffon is a safe haven for the boilermaker bunch. Walls lined in dollar bills likely obscure years of stories, and the food (served late) is always delicious. The beer menu is always on point, with a refreshing amount of tap space given to craft brewers, and the bartenders, though rushed, are some of the nicest around. Nearly windowless, the dim room feels transporting, and like the college bar you always yearned for—comfortable, familiar and with enough dark corners in which to make mischief.

The staff of McCrady’s, Sean Brock’s fine dining temple, frequents The Griffon. If Sean is in town and hosting a guest chef (which he often does), you’ll likely find them winding down here.
