    One of the best underground bars in the city. Unpretentious, $3 PBRs and $6 craft beers with awesome jazz and games.

    Come for the live jazz and all the fun & game. Put your card in for ping pong / billiards ASAP, and challenge some strangers to foosball while you wait.

    Really cool, understated place. Amazing live concerts for $3 (entry fee). Fun night getting competitive with the games.

    Surrounded by games galore and the wonderful sounds of live jazz, what's not to love about Fat Cat?! I would definitely return to this place!

    Try the freshly made soda. This place is great for groups who want to play awesome 'basement games' or listen to live music.

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

    Snag a table with a view of the stage and scrabble it up to some mixed (but usually pretty good) jazz shows.

    One if the best hangout spots in the West Village. Excellent for billiards, board games, and fooseball aficionados.

    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!

    The co-existence of a concert venue and pool hall is nice on paper, not in reality. You really have to love the music and be able to ignore all the others not listening to it at all.

    Great place for a casual night out with friends. Live jazz, board games, shuffleboard and ping ping.

    <3 <3 <3 this place - awesome micro brews, live local jazz, tons of table games and a dog named handsome that walks around to greet you. Def worth the wait and only go after midnight - $3 cover!

    A 50/50 mix of Dr Pong in Berlin and The Poolbar in Amsterdam. Two of my favourite bars in one, of course it was ace.

    Bring your girlfriend here when your male friends invite you here to play ping pong. You'll have a great time watch her beat them.

    Really crowded - make sure you get there early and preferably not on a Saturday night. Otherwise it's a really cool place!

    It's game city down here! Pool, ping pong, shuffleboard, chess, scrabble.... So you can listen to some sick jazz music while you drink and play games. Not too shabby.

    Lots of ping ping tables and pool tables. Great place for a group outing, but it's louder than anything.

    Bucket of PBR. Shuffleboard. Repeat. Be careful though, you seriously lose track of time since you're in the basement and the clock adds up some major dollas...

    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.

    Its basically hipster Disney Land in a basement. They also have live Jazz sometimes, which can be quite good.

    More ping pong tables in the back left. Also, they don't serve hard liquor but you can a tall shot of Soju instead 👌🏻

    Ping pong, PBR, and jazz = good times. Don't go looking for liquor though, just beer and wine here.

    They just got 2 new shuffle board tables. Great because more game power but the new tables are smaller. Older ones are better

    Very young crowd, very simple bar, but nice live jazz bands and all the bar games you could wish for.

    All 9 pool tables have had their cloths replaced as of October 2014. You can no longer blame your missed pots on the poor table surface!

    Pop/hip hop upstairs. Live jazz downstairs. Great after work, Friday or Saturday night refuge!

    Feels like a bar in a suburb circa 1985 where divorcées go and give their kids a fistful of quarters while they get hammered and hook up in the back seat of a Buick.
