Village Voice's Description

A pool-hall/jazz-club hybrid is a rare and incongruous thing: While the swinging drummer and bandaged-finger bassist are unfailingly precise, the same can't be said for some of the patrons swarming around the pool and ping-pong tables. But that's what makes the combination such an unexpected blast: There's no expectation that you be as graceful as the musicians here, which makes Fat Cat extra inviting. On Fridays, a $3 cover gets you in the door, and from there you can play pool, ping-pong, shuffleboard, foosball, or, yes, Scrabble and chess. Basically, this is a bachelor-pad carnival, except your bachelor pad doesn't have bartenders, too.

    This place was awesome for my friends 19th birthday party. We were all able to get in and have a great time playing pool and listening to some good up-tempo jazz from a group of guys that looked about our age. If you don't think you'd fit in with a bunch of college kids, this place isn't for you.

    If you like live music, this is THE place to be! For those that like a spot of competition it's also got pool, pong and loads more! Remember life's more fun when you're keeping score!

    Like nowhere else in Manhattan. Grab a bucket of PBRs, ping pong paddles and enjoy the sweet jazz music.
