Blind Tiger Continued from page 1

The previous interior has been stripped down to the brick.

Blind Tiger Coffee Co is located at the northwest corner of Osborne and Beresford.

“It’s been good, I think a lot of the people in the

neighbourhood appreciate that we do have this coffee offering for them.”

Shifting priorities Tere is obviously a big change between running a

nightclub and a restaurant, but Jack and his staff have taken it all in stride. “Tere are tons of learning curves and growing pains,

but I think we’ve been handling it fairly well and the response has been pretty great.” Te decision to leave the nightclub scene came with

some major changes in Jack’s personal life, with the biggest changes being getting married and having a child. His face lights up when talking about the woman he calls his best friend, and his 15-month-old son and all the joys that come with being a husband and father. Family has become his number one priority, and even as a self-described ‘serial entrepreneur’, Jack says money is not what drives him most in business. “I’m very much motivated by smiles. I’m very much

motivated by creating spaces and ambiences that put smiles on people’s faces. Being able to walk into the Blind Tiger and see people eating, drinking, having a good time and smiling is what drives me.” Blind Tiger Coffee Co is located at 725 Osborne St. Te

coffee shop is open Monday through Saturday during the day, while the speakeasy is open Tuesday to Sunday from 5-2. For more info or to book a spot, check out
