After I attended the NY Auto Show at the Javits Center today, I decided to visit the fabled Blind Tiger on West Bleeker Street, near 7th Avenue. I walked into a very cheerful atmosphere on Good Friday and I saw a place with the flavors of many great bars rolled into one place.

The colorful array of taps lined up on the Z-shaped bar read like a Who's Who in the craft/imported beer world with their best on display. As I looked around at the chalk board menus hanging in the dark wood paneled walls, I was thinking my friends would just love the place and that our future visits would have try the food there too.

Yes, I was a newbie in the pretty bartender's scene as she was looking at me and waiting for my order. I took a pint of the refreshing Allagash White, while standing in the somewhat crowded bar. I was thinking that The Blind Tiger probably rocked hard on the weekends and was a little more congenial for a quiet pint or three during the week.

As my stay was brief, I didn't really experience a long session at the Blind Tiger to get to know its dynamics and characters, but I am certain I will return in good company for more of its great selection and service.

Biggest selection of craft brew on tap I have ever seen. I had two imperial stouts after trying a few: Prairie Christmas BOMB! and Other Half: We've Been Out There In Orbit.

Cool place, wooden decor, good amount of seating. Friendly staff. I got the shrimp tacos which was one of the daily specials and I was impressed.

Overall a great place if you're looking for a large quantity and high quality selection of beer. Would recommend!

My wife and I stopped in here after lunch at a vegan place down the street. Not too large, dark wood, fire in the fireplace. Very comfortable.
28 beers on tap, including three from Hill Farmstead. Two cask offerings.
We sat at the bar and had a great conversation with the guy next to us.
Service was good.

Went here last summer and was very impressed with everything. They had a few Hill Farmstead beers on tap and a pretty good menu!
