The Blind Tiger is buying the lot next to them at 119 North Beach on the Main Street side of Beach Boulevard in Bay St. Louis. This means more business and more jobs for the local community. The people of Bay St. Louis are excited about this new and exciting expansion of the ever growing and popular Blind Tiger of Bay St. Louis. In the new three-story building, The Blind Tiger will have a hand-crafted brewing station and an oyster bar facing the water. WLOX recently did a story about the new devopment with an interview of the owner, Thomas Genin, and Bay St. Louis’s Mayor. It is a great story about the redeveolpment of Bay St. Louis and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Blind Tiger opened it’s doors in early 2013 to resounding applause from residents and tourists. “We have been very excited to be apart of the community of Bay St. Louis, ” said one employee of The Blind Tiger. Any night you’ll walk into The Blind Tiger and see friendly faces, good eats and tons of drinks. That’s not all. On weekends, they have artists play in the open courtyard overlooking the beach. After the marina is complete, the possibilities will be endless for The Blind Tiger to grow and look to the future. Not to mention, the view is already amazing. Enjoy a Joe Cat Burger, Fish Tacos or a new creation from Chef/ Owner/ Operator Thomas Genin and the crew at The Blind Tiger.

QUESTION TO COASTAL90.COM My husband and I are going to be staying at my son’s in law camp we want to drive to Old Town Bay St. Louis. We have been there a couple of times and then ride r bicycles around could you please give us any advice like where to park at and some great bike riding areas to see.
thanks for any advice
Bay St. Louis Old Town is a great area to visit and bike. For parking I would park on Main Street or when open the Bay St. Louis Parking Garage. (It may be closed due to Construction) Bring plenty of Water because it can be warm especially during the summer months.
Once out I would ride the bikes around and hit a few local areas:
I would swing by the Depot District and Duck Pond first. This will get you about a 5 minute bike ride from Main Street. The Cypress Cafe is located there. The old train terminal and several other shops and business are located in this area as well.
Then I would head back up to the beach to check out the great bike path from Bay St. Louis to Waveland. (If you are adventurous you can take the trek to the Waveland Pier about 3 Miles down. Nice walk for $1.00 per person.)
Head back to Main Street and Visit the Sloppy Dog’s Cafe. This is a great little cafe serving gourmet hot dog’s in Bay St. Louis.
Check out the Hancock Historical Society located on Cue Street across from the Court House. Great history collection and nice museum of Hancock County.
