Went one evening for cocktails before going elsewhere for a meal. Drinks menu was initially not available. Purchased drinks on a 2 for 1 offer as advised on the menu. Took more than 15 minutes for the waitress to make and bring them to the table, despite being only a couple of other customers in the bar. When paying was... More

This will review one of the Student nights' out and one of the most popular ones in Leicester. Fat Cats is one of the top five ideas of a night out for many. I cannot comment on the food or during the day time, as I have yet to try and possibly will not. As for the bar/club vibe, it... More

Went for a few drinks prior to eating out. Atmosphere was awful. Bar staff behind the bar texting and eating the fruit meant for cocktails. Lots of drunk students just generally annoying everyone else. Won't be back.

They always have a brilliant DJ here at the weekend -- probably my favourite place for a dance in Leicester! Drinks are reasonably priced. They have a small outside area with benches which is nice for when it gets a bit warm!

I went here for lunch with a former colleague as we fancied a change. The food was actually quite good - around £7 for a ciabatta with chips and coleslaw. I had the avocado, tomato and mozzarella which was good and my friend was pleased with the pulled pork. It's a big space and a shame that we were one... More

For a so called premium bar, the place is a dive and the toilets are horrendous!!! Never again will I go in there. The drinks are over priced and the bar staff are rude.
