Blind Tiger in Cowgate opened for coffee this morning before the lunchtime switch to craft beer bar and wine bar giving people a first proper glimpse of the new look.
“I think people will really like it,” said Neil Treliving the man behind the venture, named after a 1920s American prohibition-era “speakeasy”.
“It is hard to describe the look, it is a bit different. I guess the style is industrial and contemporary throughout - with a few novel ideas thrown in too. It is our own style - we have a tattoo parlour in Eye and it kind of mirrors that with exposed pipework for instance, but it is also very comfortable and relaxing, with comfy seats and sofas.”
A coffee shop until midday, Blind Tiger will transform to wine bar with more than 20 craft beers on tap too. And if you are peckish, there is cheese and charcuterie.
