New location is smack in the middle of the West Village a/k/a tourist hell. Attractive "old world" style interior with a burning fireplace in colder weather with tall tables and stools throughout and a wooden rail and stools along the perimeter next to the big windows looking out to the busy streets. Beer selection is expertly chosen, with only the better micros as well as some off the map selections like Aecht Schlenkerla Fast Bier and American Flatbread. There’s always at least two or three special beers available here on any given night. Great bottle list as well, with some "vintage" ales. Can seem a bit pricey--micro pints $6 and rare/strong beers upwards of $7 for a 10-12 oz goblet. Also can get very crowded as well, ruining any chance to seriously concentrate on the nectar your drinking. Try to go early in the day if you want to sample and rate the good stuff. Definitely worth checking out. Glad to see the tiger reborn!

I never went to their original location, but this one is pretty sweet. It was really crowded (although it was Saturday night), and because of that they were out of some of the cask beers. Still, a tremendous and reasonably priced selection. I didn’t try the food, but it looked decent. Check it out, definitely the best beer bar that I’ve been to in manhattan, better than hop devil.

Finally reopened and what a great place. The ambiance is very old school and nice, lots of wood, a fireplace, rustic yet modern. Packed with people but expected at this time. Selection is great and not just the taps but the bottle selection is great (even vintage bottles). Newest stuff on tap from Chelsea, Smuttynose, and some cool casks. I think the new beers bottle prices are great. Vintage bottles get pricey. Tap prices are maybe a buck more than fair. Food is gourmet and even though the prices seem fair the portions are small. Service was great despite the large crowd.

I had my first visit to the fabled Blind Tiger on Good Friday, after going to the NYC Auto Show. It appears to be a smaller place than I had anticipated, but its selection was outstanding. The place was already crowded at 4pm with a cheerful 20’s-30’s crowd enjoying the immense tap and cask selections. I had the Allagash White on tap, which tasted like it just came from the brewery. It appears they did have a chalk board menu of sandwiches and other fare, but I didn’t read it too closely as I had to depart. I gather from looking at the place and it’s location, it probably rocks on the weekend, like Chumley’s, which is 3 blocks away. I intend to return on another evening or day to explore its dynamics and its characters.

Went to the new location on Bleeker for their re-opening party and I was really impressed with the new location. Although the new bar is bigger than the old location, it is still very small but what it lacks in size it makes up for in character. And now on to the beer- they had an amazing tap selection at their re-opening party, and I am sure they will have some rare offerings on a consistent basis. If you are already in manhattan, hitting this place is a must, as well as the Hop Devil Grill.

Just went here for the re-opening party on 4/02/07. The tap list for the party was awesome. Extremely crowded, but not that bad. Bartenders were still managing to take orders promptly. Only tried some cheese dip that the chef made, but it was ridiculously good. Good tap selection, nice corner location.

The Blind Tiger’s new digs are absolutely gorgeous. The expanded kitchen is turning out delicious pressed sandwiches and the coffee’s better than Starbucks (ironic because their old location has become one). However, there is a slight problem. In a State Liquor Authority-induced twist of fate, a bar that had two dozen beers on tap is now sans liquor license. Read Dave’s cry to the neighborhood for help: "We still don’t know when we’ll be getting our liquor license, though we did find out one of the reasons it’s been delayed - Deborah Glick, the assemblywoman who represents our district, wrote a letter to the State Liquor Authority saying our license should be rejected because we’re a bar rather than a restaurant, "a large bar that primarily serves beer," and that isn’t what Bleecker Street needs... Ms. Glick prides herself on protecting neighborhood businesses, which is what I always thought we were. I suggested that rather than judge us without ever visiting or calling, she stop by for a coffee and a pressed sandwich. Actually, according to the State Liquor Authority, her letter and influence is the most damning thing against us.” You can email Ms. Glick at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also take the time to sign the petition to get the Tiger a new Liquor License (www.petitiononline.com/newtiger) so we can get back the Best Beer Bar in the city.

Too bad the place went under. Sure, it was noisy and way too crowded to breathe. However, the taplist was excellent and it’s all about the beer for me.

Wanted to say good bye for now to an old friend. A stop on my informal NYC pub tours. They definitely did a nice job sponsoring events and were great supporters of crafted beers. Loved the location & area. Could get muy crowded at times, but what good place doesn’t. Let’s hope they reopen and in a cool cozy haunt too.
