A collaboration between the mixologists behind Milk & Honey and Little Branch, the Griffin is a sleek rebranding of the old PM space. Don’t expect a mellow vibe and artisanal cocktails, however; the atmosphere here is anything but subdued. The target demographic consists of salt-and-pepper professionals whose bubbles never burst; bouncers boast the crispest suits in the room, and VIP booths – elevated, with blue banquettes – host actual VIPs. Décor is impressively over-the-top, including a 50-foot ceiling mirror surrounded by golden filaments and schizophrenic strobes.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
