“Great selection and good scene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Really nice selection of beers, the wait staff is helpful and knowledgeable. There is a really nice vibe to this place. When I was there, we saw hipsters, old couples and children and somehow all blended harmoniously, and that was before the beer!!

“Just leave before you're drunk! :-)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

I like this place quite a bit. Blind Tiger always has a nice variety of East Coast beer, as well as representation from other parts of the country. The decor is "pubby" and welcoming, but the focus is on the beer. Definitely try and make it when the pace is a bit slower, as you can get a table or spot at the bar easily, it's nice and friendly when it fills up too.

If you're looking for a good, unassuming, casual place in the village to have a quality micro, check this place out.

“Best craft beer bar in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Great selection, knowledgeable staff and really cool atmosphere. The crowd was diverse and very friendly. Good place to come to try beers or to be introduced into the craft beer world. Great place to gather with friends.

“Craft beer Mecca- 28 draughts and a ton of bottles with good atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

Great place in the heart of the west village for a few craft beers. Good atmosphere, a small place but got a seat and worked through a few of the extensive list of beers. Not cheap, but then you should expect to pay for quality craft beer in a place that knows its stuff.
