In true Prohibition style, you need to really seek out or (luckily) stumble upon the obscure doorway that leads you to this curious little drinking den. Reflecting a quirky 19th century drinking room, Blind Tyger is a must-find treasure, secretly waiting for you in Leeds’ Northern Quarter.
Taking inspiration from classic serves, the drinks menu features blind-tasted spirits and liqueurs matched with homemade nectars, all whipped up into cocktail blends at the blink of an eye by the bar’s charming staff. Get your sweet fix with staff favourite The Zapatero, or pick a more daring poison like the bitter delights of Little Death, with the punchy kick of an absinthe-soaked cherry. A fine choice of craft beers and bottled ales can be also found on the menu along with a selection of global wines.
Set to become a first choice for date nights, late nights and mid-week cocktails, the bar has an incredibly intimate feel with cosy booth seating, locally sourced vintage props and chilled out funk, soul and electric blues sounds.
Best Bars Tip: Fancy a cheeky dance to mix up your soiree? Ask the bar staff about the secret coded door that leads you to sister venue Sandinista for late night partying.
