Fodor's Expert Review The Blind Tiger

Yangon (Rangoon) Bars/Pubs
This hot bar, started by an arty Yangon expat and a Bangkok-based art curator, is a speakeasy in the true sense of the word. There are no signs out front. You need to look for the security guard lingering out front of this nondescript corner apartment building, chatting to the local residents, then slip inside the main entrance and make a beeline for the end of the corridor, where you’ll come to a closed door and a street-art painting of a tiger on the wall. The security guy should follow, but if he doesn’t, be patient. Someone will soon open the door to this dimly lit, scarlet-wall-papered bar with an atmospheric jazz sound track that is probably heaving with in-the-know expats. The cocktails are great and the tapas-style sharing plates are delicious.
