What Are Blind Tiger Customers Saying?

  • The Blind Tiger attracts some mixed feedback once you analyze customer experience. One concert grower was impressed at how up close and personal he was able to get with his favorite musician-saying that the singers were a few feet away. On the downside, seating was somewhat limited unless you were ambitious enough to buy a table for the night.
  • Another concertgoer told us that they bought tickets because their favorite act was in town- saying that the Blind Tiger is good at attracting top-notch musical acts into North Carolina. That being said, he says that unless you have a ticket, the cover charge to get in and can be expensive.
  • In addition a concert goer also told us that the stage space is not too big and not too small and for the audience it's standing room only with a pair of bathrooms located adjacent to the stage. Another thing he warns prospective attendees about is that the hard concrete floor can be painful to stand on for extended periods and can become slippery when beer and wine inevitably are spilled.
  • Another reviewer tells us that while he loves punk music and rock 'n' roll as he's growing older it makes sense to bring earplugs- especially for a venue like this where you're so close to the performing artists. 
  • A local area resident brings out-of-town guests to this music establishment after a nighttime bar crawl, saying it's a great way to close out the evening with some fun music.
  • Other reviewers say that the old Blind Tiger location was very dated, grimy and dirty, but this new one is a significant step up for Spring Garden. Among the improvements is a larger stage, a bigger outdoor smoking area, and better parking options. In addition, they commented that it feels less like a bar first and a concert venue second, and more like a music hall first and a bar second.
  • Another event goer who enjoys country western music says that it has a decently stocked bar, lots of beers on tap, though the parking was somewhat tricky.
