Fat Cat Photo
Great pool halls are the ones with lots of brass, oak, and tables with those frilly leather pockets, right? The kind of joint where you introduce yourself as Mad Dog Sharky the Cat and no one bats an eye? Nowadays, such places feel contrived, as the gruff hearts of most old-time pool sharks have likely stopped beating. Which is what makes the un-saloon-ish Fat Cat the ideal place to hang out, drink beer, and talk plenty of shit over a few rounds of eight ball at a bargain: around $6 per hour Sun–Thu and $7 per hour Fri–Sat (always prorated to the minute). Located underground, it has the ratty psychedelic feel of a saltwater aquarium circa 1976. The nine pool tables, though, are all kept in top shape.
