Griffin's, a prominent gay bar in Madrid, has been a significant part of the city's nightlife since its opening on May 27, 1982, at the legendary Villalar 8, near Castellana. It stands on the site of former iconic venues like La Boite de Villalar and Prive, revolutionizing Madrid's gay scene. Thanks to efforts by public relations experts like Leandro and his team, Griffin's established the "Griffin's concept" that remains influential today.
Initially, Griffin's filled a gap in Madrid's nightlife, offering a welcoming, friendly atmosphere where guests were treated with warmth and respect. The aim was simple: to make friends and enjoy good times in a clean, inviting setting.
Forced to relocate due to circumstances beyond their control, Griffin's moved to its current location at Marqués de Valdeiglesias, 6. Although the setting and concept have evolved, the bar maintains its founding philosophy, providing a cozy, multi-floor space that caters to the needs of its patrons, including hosting iconic shows.
Griffin's takes pride in its history and the loyal clientele from its early days. While the original location is fondly remembered, the current venue continues to feel like home for many. It's a place for reconnecting with old friends and making new ones, whether you're a long-time patron or a newcomer to the scene. Griffin's invites everyone to experience its unique blend of nostalgia, friendship, and vibrant gay culture in Madrid. 🌈🍸
