Fat Cat isn’t where to have a first date, and it isn’t where you have a second, third, or fourth date either. It just isn’t romantic. But one thing it does have is games. They have ping pong, pool, shuffleboard, foosball, checkers, chess, and probably a bunch of other things that we’re forgetting. That’s what you come here for. Sure, it kind of feels like the common area of a frat house, and you have to pay a cover - but at least they have live music, and they’re open until 5am every single night. If you want to play a game in the West Village, this is the place.
