Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of lounge fare and pours at Tiger Lounge in Georgetown.
Tiger Lounge swells with the sounds of live music and the pings of pinball-machine points, both of which create a welcoming brand of martini-lounge ambience. Resident makers deal out drinks from the bar and organic fare from a menu blanketed with gourmet pizzas, soups, salads, and sandwiches. Start out with an app such as the Tuscan garlic bread ($4), which paves the palate-pleasing path toward The B-52 Bomber sandwich—Cajun-seasoned turkey, provolone, roma tomatoes, red onions, lettuce, and spicy bistro sauce on whole-wheat bread ($8). For sharable satiation, snag The Goody Goody pizza topped with pesto, fresh basil, mozzarella, goat cheese, parmesan, and feta ($7–$10) or lighten the consumption level with a bowl of the soup du jour ($5) or a La Tigra salad, which blends organic greens, pineapple, avocado, and Pico de Gallo beside tortilla chips and Cajun ranch dressing ($7–$9).
The lounge allows guests to soak up the great outdoors as well as the great, climate-controlled indoors. For fresh air, head out to the back deck to enjoy the company of friends while sipping on sapid libations. The interior boasts similarly stimulating opportunities, including live music, open-mic nights, and occasionally appearing go-go dancers see schedule.
The Stranger and the Seattle Weekly both positively reviewed Tiger Lounge. Though reviews are mixed on the service, most reviewers enjoy the atmosphere, and 18 Yelpers give the lounge an average of 3.5 stars.
- A group of button-down gents who'd wandered in unawares chewed pizza at the center table, all the while smiling like 10-year-olds on Christmas morning. At any other bar, this would have been an event. At Tiger Lounge, this is better known as Tuesday. – Vernal Coleman, Seattle Weekly
- whether you order a gourmet pizza or one of the fabulous sandwich combos, it's always EXCEEDED my expectations! – Jodie H., Yelp, 11/19/09
