El Tigre, situated in Plaza Fiesta, is partly responsible for transforming the Tijuana open-air mall into a craft beer galleria. An early craft beer supporter, punk bar El Tigre was the first in the mall to put local craft beer on tap, vending varieties like Silenus Cerveza Artesanal and Cerveceria Zesde to its crowd of alternative partiers. El Tigre maintains a rogue, unconventional style in its décor: its walls are plastered with posters, magazine clippings, and articles from the old local music scene, and the absence of lighting injects an appropriate level of angst. The snacks on offer are decidedly less complex; hot wings and burgers provide just enough fuel to keep you dancing all night long.
