Bring back the dogs and the menage a trois!. Great fun at Tini's last night.. and then of course even more fun at Hula Hula... however not thrilled about some new changes... A martini I have ordered for over a decade is no longer available? and now the new chef removed the very tasty and unique offering of "not so mini" corn dogs from both menus? Thanks chef.. I can get sliders and hummus anywhere.. but the corn dogs were unique ... rather then remove them you should have promoted them... they were part of the reason we came to the bar and dropped $100 on martinis on a regular basis.
Fun Place to Be. Last August I experienced an unusual event at Tiny Bigs. My friends and I did not have the best service from a disgruntled bartender. Fortunately my husband forwarded my complaints to the owner, Keith. Keith was wonderful. He appreciated knowing about his employee who was not doing a good job. He invited our group back to show us what our evening should have been like. We had so much fun!!! The staff was very attentative, the food was delicious, and the drinks were, well, really fantastic. It was so nice to see this situation turn around, and I want to publically thank Keith for being the best host. He is a great guy, and runs a fun establishment. I will return again and again to enjoy Tiny Bigs!!!
I Miss Tini's : (. One of the number one things I miss about Seattle is going to Tini Bigs......Best bartenders, best drinks, best mac and cheese, and best atmosphere. Definitely making the trip back out to Seattle to visit this place! : )
Tini Bigs - not to be missed. Tini Bigs is a wonderful establishment that will offer you relaxed ambiance, welcoming smiles from the moment you walk in, familiar faces, great food and martinis, and a knowledgeable staff that will go over and beyond to please you. If you're looking for a place to sit back and chill, I personally recommend early Sunday afternoons where you will find an awesome drink you cannot find anywhere else in one hand, a magazine in ther other, and joking with Seattle's best bartender, Ryan. All of this while listening to everything from Frank Sinatra to Marvin Gaye, wooing you to "just one more drink." If you prefer a more lively crowd with more of an up-beat atmosphere, just stick around..it only gets better. This place is very popular...and for a good reason. I truly consider Tini's my home away from home.
BIG QUALITY TINI's plus more.
I would like to comment on your recent review of Tini Bigs and highlight certain points that you are dearly misinformed.
1.) The bar is over a 100 years old, so if you can't see past some of the unreputable spots, I hate to see what kind of place you live in.
2.) Define Hideous! maybe it was because you were so caught up with the decor, your attitude was affected in some way. It's hard to argue with unreputable people like staff writers of Seattle Times and The Weekly that say the staff at Tini Bigs are warm, friendly and inviting. Maybe it was you, maybe it was an off night.
3.) Except for a few exceptions, Tini Bigs can make any popular drink for the most part, excluding Hypnotic and XRated based cocktails - maybe you should head over to Pioneer Square to get such a "CHEAP" deal. The Liquor that is used at Tini's is considered some of the best in the business, - quite possibly why you don't recognize them, they don't sell them at gas stations or on the bottom shelf at the liquor store.
4.) the Cocktail waitress never said that we can't make regular cocktails, the training and managment would never allow that, maybe you should remember what she actually said. IF you are going to belittle someone, maybe you should give it context - what did you ask for? Jello shots?
5.) It's in the name, Tini Bigs - Big Quality Martinis that use quality liquor, not to mention that they offer smaller sizes for the penny watching crowd.
I guess the basis for this comment is that if you are going to analyze the bar to this degree, be specific about what you didn't like and not generalize the situation.. Lot's of people enjoy Tini's and the staff make their living by working at this establishment... if you are going to take food out of their mouths, be a little more conscious.
Where to go when you want to get robbed by rude people.
We went to Tini Bigs under the advice of a waiter in Belltown (at Tavolata, I would not recommend them either). Frankly, this bar looks like a former unreputable establishment they coated in black paint in order to hide the disgusting spots on the floor.
It was hideous, the waitstaff was hideous towards us and everyone else. They call themselves a martini bar but they can't actually make most of the martinis that the general public wants. All you can get is what is on their menu, and trust me, those drinks aren't worth the nine dollars you'd pay for them. They are disgusting and revolting quite frankly. I ended up getting some kind of a citrus drink that tasted like vodka and orange juice in a big martini glass that has pulp inside of it which was not exactly what I was looking for. The waitress was only happy when we paid her and it seemed to be a chore for her to even give us a minute to look over the menu after she told us that they didn't make regular, general martinis and any bar can typically make.
It was so loud in the bar that we couldn't even hear anything, not to mention it was crowded and there was no air flow so get one smelly person in that bar and it's going to be an even worse night.
I would not recommend this bar to anyone, it's a waste of your time, it's a waste of your money and in this day and age, you have to make sure you're going to get the most out of your dollar. And this is definitely not the place to do it. Go somewhere else. Anywhere else, you'll be thankful you did.
One of the few real lounges left.
I usually drop by once a month, usually to order a particular drink. Kevin, the bartender, has always made an effort to remember my name, make conversation, and ensure I actually like the drink. The attention is appreciated, and is more than you can find at most places in Seattle.
Service can be slow at times, and food is decent but nothing great, but I don't really understand who someone would want to go to a drink lounge for food anyway.
TINI BIGS TOOK OUR MONEY.
Do not waste your time at TiniBigs on 1st and Denny. Here are my reasons (and 5 others that have agreed ):
1. Waitress was nice, however throughout the night, we realized that even though we were the only ones in the bar, it took her FOREVER to do something.
2. Almost every drink we ordered... we were told they weren't able to make due to insufficient ingredients- why be a specialize martini bar, if you can't make the martini's you have on the menu!?
3. The drinks are at least $10 each... even a plain one is around $7, way over priced...plus, the drinks weren't strong. I could have put cranberry juice in a glass and not been able to tell a difference.
4. The waitress charged us a 20% gratuity without notifying us
5. The waitress actually said the words "you can give me additional tip on the next line"
8. After leaving, all six of our credit cards was charged 3 times for amounts that were at least $20 more than my actual tab amount- plus the waitress gave herself an additional tip.
9. After calling the manager the next day to complain, he said he would fix the amount, and 5 days later, the transactions went through...now we all have to call our banks and demand our money back from this bar. All we wanted was a fun night out....!
*If you fee like going out for a good time with friends... do not go here. The drinks weren't worth it and the service is beyond horrible. They even give you the bonus of arguing with them the day after. I give them a -1 on a scale of 1-10.
Overrated and rude bartender. The drinks were good, but then again aren't they almost always in most bars? The bartender was cocky and rude, insulting us for wanting a vegetarian pizza when we should be vegan since cheese is so horrible, etc. (btw they didn't even offer a veggie pizza - all are pre-made). Food selection was tiny and not very good. Overall an overpriced and overrated bar - very disappointing.
