Decked with arched brick ceilings, Gothic-style chandeliers, and red vinyl booths, The Griffin is like a medieval dungeon in Atwater Village. The cavernous lair is anchored by a stone platform with two fireplaces and a large bar, but it also features a spacious outdoor patio. The drinks are cheap, the menu full of burgers and beer, and the atmosphere low-key... unless you're a knight, in which case your coat of arms is not included.
