Tiger-Tiger Opening Night

We went down to the new Tiger-Tiger club at around 9 pm with the idea it would be early enough to have a look round before the crowds arrived.  Think again - the place was already buzzing.

Crowds of expectant Croydon party people had already descended, and were already checking the place out.  So were we. 

The club is laid out in a series of rooms consisting of several bars, a restaurant and a couple of dance floors.  From the main entrance we were presented with a long open bar stretching to the rear of the building where the stairs led up to the main body of the club.

The music was pretty loud down here but not so you couldn't hear yourself talk.  The main sound was the buzz of conversation as people looked around trying to soak the place in.  Taking the stairs to the upper level you started to get an idea of the scale of the place.  With corridors and passageways to left and right you got the feeling you could get lost in here.

The Kaz Bar was the first stop and we started to take in the work that must have gone into the place.  A fully styled bar, it's themed on an Alladin's cave Arabian Knights scene.  The other main bars all have their own feel and look, from the lounge lizard paradise of the Cocktail Bar to the contemporary feel of the main areas.

Through to the "Club" section and we found a large dance floor with further large bars serving it.  The music was current dance but not so hard it wasn't accessible to the audience which was a good mix of ages.  The atmosphere was generally relaxed and there didn't seem to be that edge of aggression which has characterized so many Croydon night-spots lately.

We had a good time at Tiger-Tiger, it's early days and we hope it stays the way it is.  We'd definitely recommend a visit, but might have a drink or two before arriving to save on the clubby prices for a bottle of Becks.
