Katana Kitten is a two-floor West Village cocktail bar with Japanese movie posters on the walls, ’60s classic rock playing over the speakers, and boilermaker beer-and-shot combinations with Japanese whisky and sake. The top floor has string lights, a few tables, and a long bar, and the basement is table-seating only. Don’t skip the bar food - the burger and crinkle fries with seaweed flakes on top are really good.
