I have been to Blind Pig on numerous occasions and have never been very impressed with their drink selection and prices.
The last time I went here, I ordered a drink that the bartender did not know how to make and so he chose to ignore me for the next 15+ minutes while serving other patrons.
Finally when I got his attention again to mention that he had not yet served me, the bartender verbally and physically assaulted me calling me drunk and threatening to fight me. He and his buddy then proceeded to attack me and drag me down the stairs while I was facing backwards. They intentionally ripped my shirt and bruised my arm. I was never asked to leave or given the option to leave on my own accord, which is the stated policy from bar owner, Bob Woody.
I tried to speak with management/the owner regarding this incident and have been lied to and ignored. One of the bartenders tried to tell me that HE was the owner when I attempted to find out who was in charge.
I would stay away from any business owned by Bob Woody as it seems that he promotes a culture of violence amongst his employees and fails to demand accountability from rogue employees. What happened to me is NOT an isolated incident; this has happened before to a much more extreme degree and the owner does not seem to care. If you are interested, just Google search ""Bob Woody Austin TX"" and the KXAN article should be one of the first 5 results; this review service does not allow me to post a link.
