If you haven’t been yet, you will definitely want to roundup your girls and plan a girls night asap. We are talking about our favorite new spot here in DC, The Gryphon.
The atmosphere is luxurious and the decor is inviting and energetic, which sets the stage for an epic girls night out. You can tell the owners really took the time and effort with each detail, from the eye catching signage outside, to the unique mounted griffin head decor. Their raw bar and dry-age steak room is beyond impressive and hands down beats out the neighboring competition which is why we had to spread the word!
The Gryphon was top on our list when planning a recent girls night out because of their SUPPER CLUB feel and lively, upbeat environment. The DJ makes his appearance every Friday and Saturday night, which turns the place up a notch and transforms this fine dining restaurant into one of the hottest options for DC night life. After 12am the restaurant becomes more of a lounge with bottle service and dancing. So if you can hang past midnight, then they are there to keep the party going for you.
They easily accommodate to private and corporate events as well by booking ahead of time. The preparation and presentation will not let you down. As DC’s premier social house, they are the best hosts any party could ask for.
And if brunch fits your schedule better, don’t worry they have that covered too! With a wide selection of dishes to choose from and delicious specialty drinks, their brunch will not fail you. We can’t wait for the warmer days, for multiple reasons, to come and take advantage of their outdoor seating and scenic view of Dupont Circle.
So if you are looking for a place to have dinner, drinks and dancing, like we were, you have hit the nightlife jackpot! In short, it’s the perfect spot to gather your girls and enjoy each other’s company while tasting exceptional food and cocktails. With the holidays approaching, there is so much to go out and celebrate for with good friends and family.
It truly was difficult to choose our favorite dishes, however there were a few that really stood out. We captured and shared our favorite dishes which are the prefect size sharing.
The oysters of course were our first pick, with their impressive raw bar it was the first thing we ordered as well. The kale salad and roasted brussels sprouts were on point along with the civeche and lamb chops. Drooling just thinking about it!
If you haven’t checked out The Gryphon yet, we highly recommend it. We promise you a delightfully satisfied appetite and an unforgettable, epic girls night!
