Fat Cat

Bar in West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District

If $16 cocktails and fancy-schmancy Village boutiquery are getting you down, maybe it's time to pay a visit to this run-down little ping-pong hall. Fat Cat is a basement dive that draws a young, unpretentious crowd who want to hang out, shoot some pool, play a little shuffleboard and maybe even get a ping-pong game going.

You'll also find cheap beers and live music nightly.
