Music and games

We went there to ear some good music and were not disappointed. Despite the noisy environment due to the several games surrounding the stage area, the music is still enjoyable. Be ready to queue at the bar and bring your own food, if you don't want to eat overpriced peanuts.

That is very with option in greenvillage area, it plays jazz as well as table games and good drinks. The best play is coming on groups to enjoy the place. Very casual atmosphere, good for having fun, it is a well suggested place among young workers and students in new York.

Really easy to get to by subway! Great atmosphere and plenty of your favourite pub games! We had to wait a while to get a pool table but there was live jazz music and great beer.

A must for any Jazz fan as they have live jazz bands every night. Free entrance, good selection of beers too. You can even bring food in from outside! Pool tables, table tennis tables too, this place has the lot and great location in Greenwich Village too!

I absolutely love this place. Never have I been to a pub / jazz bar / game bar like this one. The energies of this place are superb and I loved hanging out with friends here. Anytime someone would visit me in New York and after a few drink in Lower East Side we would walk to Fat Cat Cafe.... More

No food - booze only... Fun for a large group - pick a pool table or TT table or other games... You can play Chess, Boardgames or Scrabble...

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
