  • EXPATS 'Friday' HAPPY HOUR

    The Gryphon

    Our Happy Hours are where you meet International Professionals/Expats from all over the world and DC Professionals. I organize this with my polyglots and professional meetups. We speak all sorts of languages. Some times, our Happy Hours are like a United Nations conference. You hear different languages left and right. On top of that, I have a very active & dynamic DC Professionals group. They come in numbers. You get to socialize with International and DC Professionals at the same time. Sounds like fun! Diplomats are also regulars at our Happy Hours. Because, it gives them an opportunity to interact directly with people from the countries where they have worked in or are going to be assigned. We booked the whole bar area for this party. We have specials and an extended happy hour, just for our group. Gryphon also make me feel loved and honored, by serving, one of my favorite cocktails, which is named after me -MerTini:) It will be one of the featured cocktails. Gryphon is a Meat & Raw Bar Social House. These words encompass the entire dining experience presented at the Gryphon. The Meat & Raw Bar Food Experience The food experience is meat-centric with a heavy emphasis on beef. But the menu includes a variety of options for pork, lamb, seafood and, of course, an outstanding oyster based raw bar that includes shrimp, lobster and clams. The philosophy, is to bring out the experience of enjoying the meats and other food on the menu through two things: The Preparation - such as curing, grilling, broiling, roasting and aging; and The Presentation - EVERYTHING is plated to share or “pre-cut.” We encourage all of our guests to order with that in mind. Social House In a nutshell social dining provides our guests with exceptional food and drink (specially crafted cocktails, selected beers and wine) and puts them together in a lively, fun, and energetic atmosphere at the Gryphon. METRO & PARKING INFO : Closest Metro Station is Dupont Circle (Please take 'Dupont South' Exit). Also, please take into account Metro's Weekend Track Work & Service Adjustments. Check it on http://www.wmata.com/ and plan accordingly. Street parking might be difficult. However, if you plan to drive, there are parking garages around.
