They don’t make ‘em like this any more (probably because Health and Safety would shut ‘em down). West Village hangout the Fat Cat is a basement bar and pool hall where the sofas are scruffy, the drinks are cheap and the ambience is jovial. There’s live jazz every night, and Fridays have formidable Brooklyn soul singer Naomi Shelton playing a residency with her Gospel Queens. Closing time is 4AM.
