Comfortable booths and antique lighting give the bar its lived in feel – informal and friendly. For entertainment, there’s a pool table, and a juke box (when the D.J. is not playing) and Karaoke three nights a week (mon-wed) in our Moroccan lounge.To visit The Fat Black Pussycat and other attractions in New York City, use our New York City online trip maker.
The back room, hidden behind the curtain is a spectacular lounge. Oriental rugs, Moroccan lanterns and the remnants of the buildings original 1880’s windows (now bricked) set the tone. The music – choice selections from the greatest artists of Africa, the Caribbean, the Middle East, and the entire world – set the backdrop. And, if there’s ever a “best lounge seating” competition, this place will win. Antique couches, a full-on throne, and other plush places to plant yourself fill the large space, forming a variety of cozy conversation pits. This is the last thing you’d expect to find on one of the most touristed streets in the Village.

Went with a large group of friends last week for drinks and the comedy show. Very impressed. The comedians were great and loved how close the stage was to the crowd. Looking forward to coming back soon.
Nice bar. Modest prices. Friendly service and staff. Had an absolute blast sitting here, drinking beer, talking with wife and bartenders.
