Blind Tiger Ale House, New York City
A ‘blind tiger’ was a nineteenth-century term for a rather dodgy bar, where you were as likely to be rolled for your money as served a drink, but this Blind Tiger has one of the best selections of beer in New York, and a convivial atmosphere pretty much any night of the week. If you drink all of the beers here – presumably not on one night – they’ll allegedly put your name on a plaque behind the bar, though the last time we were there we weren’t able to spot the plaque.
Dress Code: None.
A great bar in the Village! Straight forward, excellent tap and bottle selections, a good place to meet friends, existing or new.
I put myself in the hands of the bartender- letting her pick all my beers and was not disapointed once!
Dress Code: casual, come as you are
