Stopped in this past Saturday afternoon for a couple of cold ones. "S" shaped bar aloong the right/back from the right corner entrance, flanked by maybe 15 tbales, some along the windows, which were open and begged for much interesting people watching in The Village.
About 20? beers on tap, with many dozens in bottles, all craft, no BMC, which is nice. The selection included many IPA's and Stouts, a little different for a warm Saturday afternoon for me. I had a Bruery Saison followed by an Unearthly, both served in proper glassware.
We split an order of the Chicken Quesadillas, which tasted OK, but were sort of greasy.
While the 2 bartenders seemed nice, serviecf at this place, well at that time was not good at all. There was zero floor service for tables, meaning that we had to pick a spot to invade the bar and yell over others for drinks or food. I hate that. It took 5-10 minutes to do this when we arrived; very, very close to my patience threshold and us walking out. Not sure if this happens at other times, as this was my first visit.
I would say, based on the service problems we had, and the sort of IPA/Stout skewed tap list, I may not return on subsequent visits to NYC (I live in MA, so am a tourist there). Other places I've been have better service, better beer and better food, but probably not better people watching if you can get a window. Still, I enjoyed my two beers and was thankful we were not in a BMC bar...

Stopped at the Blind Tiger while walking through NYC.
The place was very crowded, even on a Monday afternoon. The place is pretty small, but has a nice cozy feel to it. The tap list was awesome, as expected- got Pretty Things Baby Tree and Green Flash Green Bullet. The bottle list was nice but didn't indulge there. The prices were high, as per most everywhere in NYC. Didn't get a chance to sit and really enjoy the beers, due to how crowded it was, but I could tell if you came at the right time, this place would be beer heaven. Recommended.

Blind Tiger is perfectly situated in the West Village. The vibe/appearance just works for this craft beer spot in the west village, perfect for hanging out with some friends over good beer. They have a great selection and friendly staff, all beer aficionados will be able to find something to enjoy. I went late afternoon during a weekday and it was already pretty packed. Its a small space awkwardly situated inside with not much seating. Overall good experience.
