Taylor and I always seem to find awesome dive bars, and our trip to Charleston was no exception. The Griffon is an English pub off of Queen Street just steps from the Cooper River and Waterfront Park (home to the famous pineapple fountain).
The first things we noticed as we entered the pub were thousands of uniquely decorated dollar bills posted on every inch of the establishment’s walls.The bills provided endless entertainment as we decided our order. We were tempted to order the “best fish and chips in Charleston” but decided to hold out for dinner and order a caesar salad, a basket of fries, and round of cold brews.
Once we had enjoyed our food and drink, we played a friendly game of darts with a local who told us all about his favorite places. He and his wife suggested that we try 39 Rue De Jean for dinner. The Griffon is a perfect place to have a good bite, wet your whistle, and get a feel for local Charleston.
