  • Songza Music

    While this venue features the West Village's best local jazz players, don't be surprised if some heavy hitters stop by to sit in on a few tunes.

    A true mix! Jazz, beer, pool tables, air hockey, Scrabble, and a large crowd. The perfect place to unwind in an underground setting. Get there early to catch a seat!

  • New York Habitat

    A cool little pool hall in the West Village. Where else can you find ping pong, shuffleboard, Scrabble, and jazz under one roof?

    Hit It Sunday night at 8:30, when it's uncrowded, lotsa game tables are free, & the house Big Band plays. (= The most extraordinary assemblage of young jazz talent in the city, yours for a $3 cover)

  • Ray L.

    Whatever your game is - board games, pool, table tennis, darts, shuffleboard, and my personal (Waterboy) favorite, foosball - they've got it here. Plus, jazzy live tunes and cheap drafts. Game on!

  • Matthew B.

    Go to Fat Cat. Beat your brother at ping pong and then drink beer with him. It's like being in your childhood basement. Except for the beer, I guess.

    One of my favorite bars in NYC. Looks like your friend's basement, but the best stuff—live jazz, ping pong, pool, shuffleboard, and scrabble (all games charge by the minute). Plus, cheap PBR.

    Brian Moore · July 12, 2011

    Fat Cat boasts the best basement playground in the city. When you're done with pool, you can belly up to the bar, or dominate a Ping-Pong table, or crash on the many thrift-store couches.

    Take it easy man...you know that the Dude abides and so should you. Have a sit and a nice cold beer. Listen to some music sitting in an old and dusty couch and watch people play pool or foosball.

  • Ryan P.

    Great for sipping wine and quietly playing scrabble or pounding beers and getting rowdy over a game of ping pong. Also, it's easy on the wallet!
