Kettle Of Fish looks kind of like the living room of a large off-campus college house, with old couches, dartboards on the walls, string lights hanging from the ceiling, and a few TVs showing sports by the bar. During Packers and University of Wisconsin games, this place gets pretty rowdy, but besides that, it’s a low-key spot for drinks in the West Village.
