The Fat Cat is the coolest place for billiards in Manhattan. However, a distaste for perhaps the classiest game designed for socializing (slow paced, minimal physical exertion required) is no excuse to deprive yourself of this West Village mainstay. For the brainier types, there’s scrabble or chess and a drink on the new sleek red couches that contrast the shabby chic mode of the rest of the place. Live music every night, $3 cover.
