This place is awesome. Absolutely the best bar in NYC. Lots of taps with a great selection, prices are always good, and the events are sweet. Plus, they make fantastically good food. The only problem is that it often gets quite crowded, although even then its never too tough to get a beer.
Oh and they serve their beer way too freakin cold.

Nice little pub. I never expected to find decent ale pubs in New York, I am so happy they do. Rather dark place with windows looking onto Bleecker street. The selection was impressive and reminded me of good real ale pubs back home in the UK. The bar was fairly busy but plenty of tables to sit and sample a few ales. If I lived in NYC this is were you would find me. If only the rent was $30 dollars! (Bleecker Street, Simon and Garfunkel)

I havent visited all pubs in NYC, but so far, this is my favorite one. I visited several times, both daytime and evening, and just loved it. Great selection on tap and bottles. Lots of vintage stuff. Very classy place with an open fire and a long invitingbar. Food was great and rather cheap.

Went on a Tuesday night while in town. There was a decent crowd but while we were sipping on the first round a spot at the bar opened up. I was very pleased with the careful selection of drafts and bottles. Each choice seemed to have a purpose. I was especially impressed with the selection of vintage ales available...I don’t think I’ve ever seen an ’04 Thomas Hardy available at a bar. The food menu was not large but I had a very pleasant grilled cheese and tomato soup. I had a sense that the servers weren’t the most knowledgable but they at least knew the basics of what was on draft. If in the city this is another top pick.

There is a joke ancient Chinese proverb that goes something like, If man is sent to dog house, he can be found in cat house. In this case it is a big-cat house. And yes, that was a long way to go to make a joke about this place and the reason I went there.
Anyway, this is an excellent bar. The staff was very knowledgeable about beer and global politics. I have never had a conversation with a bar tender about the possibility of Castro being dead before. The bartender who was there only seemed to be happy if you were able to make a decision as she commented about how she hates when people ask, What should I have? Luckily, I am not one of those people. However, the customer base seems to be pretty friendly and the place had a real old English (not the malt liquor) feel. I will be getting in trouble to come back here soon.

First weekend of February, ’08, visited on a Saturday afternoon. Like I said in my last review regarding The GingerMan, it really is all about when you stop in, especially when you are rating the place based on one visit. For us, we tried to hit the good beer bars in the ideal mid afternoon time frame, like we did here. But sometimes that does not work out. The place was packed, but we did manage to get a seat by the fireplace. Bar service only, which is just fine by me (although it makes it hard to rate service when it was this busy, as orders took a while). Tap selection very impressive, solid offerings all around, many new things for us to try, not everything listed available though. All beers served were fresh and in excellent condition. The food was 50-50 - my wife had an outstanding tomato soup and grilled cheese and I had the worst and smallest cheese plate I have ever had (for $10, I got a side plate, 3 tiny portions of ok cheese, and about 12 slices of bread?). And then the worst part, the place, which was already packed, got a huge steady influx of students and became dangerously overcrowded…it was not fun at all and it forced me to take off, as trying to get a fantastic beer was a pretty futile experience at that point. I’ll be back, it seems like a great spot, but it just wasn’t that enjoyable when I was there, even during non peak hours.

My favorite place in NYC. Even the old Tiger was my favorite hangout. The owners, managers, bar staff, everyone is a pleasure to be around and the place new and old are so comforable. Onto the new. The food is delicious and the menu changes often, courtesy of the awesome chef. The beers change all the time and you have to get them fast before they are gone especially at event time. They always host the best events and get the most rare beers you can find around. Also the bottle selection is great and the prices in general are not bad, but it is NYC. A must visit if you are in NYC.

A wonderful pub to hit while in the Big City. It is perhaps the finest bar I’ve been to, featuring excellent tap selections and an incredible bottle selection. The only downer was that I couldn’t buy some bottles and carry them out. Service is friendly and knowledgeable and the food decent. This is a must stop if you’re in this area of NYC, and do not be afraid to head across the street afterwards to John’s pizza and enjoy very fine pizza there too.

Agree with golubj’s rating below. He is the one that took me here. I liked the atmosphere and the staff was knowledgable and helpful. Only ate their once, but what I had was good. Nice rotating selection. Website stays up to date on what is on tap.

I go to the Blind Tiger all the time (meaning about 2 times a week), and every time I go, there are at least three good beers on draft that I really want to try. The food is excellent and the staff is highly knowledgable. Out of all the NY bars I have been to, this is my favorite. The atmosphere is non-swanky, which is often hard to find in this city. There are normally two cask beers and a gravity beer (meaning a room temperature cask), and roughly 30 taps. There is a good bottle selection as well.
