Tiger Tiger is a commercial party bar where you can meet young glammed up girls and boys.
Situated in The Printworks complex, you can’t miss Tiger Tiger as its entrance sits facing outwards on Withy Grove. This Tiger Tiger is a bit more upmarket than its more meat-market branches elsewhere and when it first opened in Manchester it made quite stir, but these days it’s settled into life as a cheesy night out.
It has a stone and dark wood floor and sports a mirrored bar bedecked with flowers. Opposite the bar there are flower-print booths and the high ceiling features with exposed tubes a la renowned architect Richard Rogers, complete with strange metal sculptures. The restaurant is to the right and there’s an extra bar upstairs for when it gets busy. There are also karaoke pods that you can hire out downstairs.
If you want to meet dolled-up young women wearing very little but jewellery and make-up, and young guys hoping their latest eau de cologne will have the desired effect, then you won’t be disappointed. Lynx have a lot to answer for. Come here on a weekend night to pull or be pulled.
The Food and Drink
Staropramen, Beck’s Vier, Guinness, John Smith’s Extra Cold is on tap and in bottles there’s Sol, Corona, Stella, Heineken and (obviously) Tiger. There are cocktails aplenty and of course all the main alcopop brands.
As well as baguettes and wraps they have a £5 list which includes gilled chicken fillet and blackened Cajun chicken Caesar salad, and a £7 list which comprises wholetail scampi and chips and beer-battered fish and chips.
The Last Word
A place to eat, drink and cavort…hang on that’s Brannigan’s slogan, but alas, the same principles apply here, albeit in a prettier environment. It’s popular with stag and hen nights so if you want eyefuls of bare flesh and maybe a drunken embrace, then head on down.
