The Gryphon. Coming Winter 2013

gryphon washington dc
The newest addition to DuPont Circle / Midtown restaurants and bars is The Gryphon. Open for lunch, dinner and drinks; the pub will be located just south of DuPont Circle at 1337 Connecticut Avenue. For those who need a landmark, that would be in between The Big Hunt and Madhatter.

Executive Chef Joeseph Evans’ menu will feature ‘New’ American cuisine, brunch and burgers. Catering will also be available. Outdoor seating will make The Gryphon a great place for a quick bite or drinks after a spring or summer day shopping and enjoying DC’s most famous traffic circle.

With ownership also involved in Policy, Lost Society and Josephine; we’re expecting The Gryphon to exude the qualities of a proper DC pub: A space brought to life by thick wood finish, tall glasses of dark ale and the buzz of Washingtonians.

  • Atmosphere: Spot Lounge definitely has the potential to be great, though the crowd and overall vibe will change on a nightly basis. With a ton of space/seating for bottle service and a very long bar, the space itself could definitely be hot. Housed in the basement level of the same building as MIA and Public, next door to Shake Shack, Spot is kind of like a bar with bottle service and the feeling of an underground club.
Venue Overview

You can pretty much get the gist of Spot Lounge as soon as you reach the bottom of the staircase and enter the venue. To your immediate right is an open space/dance area with couch-benches on the wall and a hallway leading to the bathrooms. The venue is long and narrow ahead. On the left side are about 8 ‘tables’ for bottle service. On the right side is the bar.

At the end of the bar and beyond the DJ booth (opposite the end of the bar) sits a raised VIP area that sits deep within the venue. It’s got a relatively good amount of privacy and on busy nights is more than likely roped off.

It’s a simple venue with an x-factor crowd but with the right promoter,s could be a great place to party.
