The Fat Black Pussycat

The Fat Black Pussycat, West 3rd Street, New York
The Fat Black Pussycat (old version)
West 3rd Street, West Village
New York, September 2008

“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.”
