It’s an appealing idea: a secret, dimly lit 1920s’ speakeasy that’s difficult to find. Once you’ve been scrutinised through a sliding grille in the entrance door, Blind Tiger’s staff are welcoming & seem ‘genuinely interested’ in seeing customers have a good time. The cocktails take you on a voyage through Prohibition & beyond. They’re dangerously good &, for the quality, not too expensive.Drinkers preferring beer or wine can choose from a globally sourced list. Given the emphasis on the atmosphere, the drinks & the music (which often includes live jazz & blues), it’s a pleasant surprise to find the food is rather good. The likes of nettle & rosemary soup, or seared salmon sashimi, precede steaks, chorizo-stuffed squid & meaty salads. For novelty value, book a table at Sunday’s tea & martini party.
