According to the owner:
Located beneath the College Street Diner, Tiger Bar is a hidden paradise for the fiscally conscientious. There’s rarely a cover and beer costs a neat, tidy couple of toonies. Entertainment is eclectic and you’ll find everything from DJs to dance parties to live music, including bands like Tokyo Police Club and By Divine Right. As far as regular events go, Guitar Hero competitions take centre stage on Wednesday nights, and an indie rock dance party dominates Friday evenings.
Tiger Bar would look just like the family rec-room you grew up in…if you only you’d grown up with the Swiss Family Robinson. Think Gilligan’s Island meets That 70’s Show. Tigers, parrots and panthers peer out from behind the lush faux foliage of the bar’s wild jungle murals, while thick ropes of knit rugs cover the floor, and retro lampshades dim the room’s lighting. It’s as familiar as your best friend’s parents’ basement and 10 times as fun.
If Lost has taught us anything, it’s that when foraying into the jungle, one must do so with determination and perseverance. Such is the case at Tiger Bar. Though it’s of the city’s hottest new bars, it’s almost as though they want to make sure you know the secret handshake before they let you in. You have to work to find either of the entrances to Tiger. One is located inside College Street Diner; the second is in an alley off Lippincott Street, behind the breakfast joint, Aunties and Uncles.
