Trumped up bar totals. – Pay cash at this establishment. I've paid with a Visa twice now, same server both times, and she has changed the tip & total higher than I've authorized. Both times I have tipped 20% for service, so I'm a little angry at her audacity and gall. I'm unable to contact the bar owner or manager about it, so I'm having to file a dispute form with my bank. This is out & out stealing, if she were my employee she'd be out of a job.
T-bar Delivers! – Read about T-Bar in a music mag long time ago. This time in Stumptown was able to give it a go and I can say the night lived up to the hype. Great music, strong drink, cool crowd, and fine females. Impressive display
of a solid vibe and good fun that was either unavailable or non-existent at other spots I visited. Keep it up - I did!
This place is rude to its neighbors – Not a neighborhood friendly place. Plays loud music constantly, has obnoxious people hanging out outside, and is inconsiderate. The staff inside, as another reviewer states, acts as though they are there as a courtesy to you. Drinks are okay, food is pretty terrible. The crowd, one of Portland's worst.
Will go again – I just went here for a friend's birthday and it was my first time going. The live band karoke was good, and bad singers were at a minimum. Though I didn't sample the cuisine, the drinks were made well and were reasonably priced. Bartenders and staff were friendly and called me "sweety," which always gets them a plus in my eyes. The only minus is on space, way overcrowded even on a Thursday night and seating was kind of hard to get at times, and although bar staff were doing their best to keep up with the lines, it did take a while to get drinks.
A dark, grungy party scene with Asian accents. – In Short
Loud, lively and very, very dark, this bar is dominated by its long, wooden bar painted in tiger stripes. Rough brick and black paint create an industrial-meets-jungle atmosphere that is softened by a laid-back, friendly vibe. Late night crowds come from nearby rock shows or after shifts at other bars and restaurants. DJs or live music is featured nightly. The menu includes a range of Asian dishes, from lumpias (crispy Filipino egg rolls) to curries.
not all that – You gotta take the bad with the good
Music is good...Great DJ's
Food is good...very good - - They actually do international cuisine right.
The Crowd is a kinda 3rd rate attempt at 'Hip'.
Take your favorite Soap and make the characters a bit less talented and a lot less attractive.
The waitresses are lame and they act like they are only doing this until their Hollywood "Big Break" (nobody told them that Hollywood is a few hundred miles South..not to mention that they arent hollywood material anyways).
The bartenders are cool though. They make 'em stiff and keep 'em coming....
Portland's Hot Spot – Portlands number 1 spot for great food and drink. Plus the regularly provide some of Portlands top DJs and electronica acts. More than worth the effort of checking out.
Best place to start a night – Tiger Bar has great service and a slick vibe. The bar is usually crowded, but the crowd is mellow and low-key. It is a great place to stop in for a drink or start a night on the town. I would highly recommend this place to other people.
