Fat Black Pussycat

The Fat Black Pussycat, used to be Kettle of Fish, and the bar's ties to the famous folk days of Greenwich Village are apparent from the faded photos on the walls and the patron's equally faded faces. In the 60s, this address was Gerdes Folk City, a prominent folk venue where the likes of Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel used to play. Upstairs used to be a Gay Liberation Front community center, which housed the Radicalesbians--who fought sexism in the gay liberation movement and homophobia in the feminist movement. Bookended by an evil frat bar and McDonald's, Fat Black Pussycat holds on to the past.

I love both the facade and the name! Do bands still play there now?

I love the name and everything it stands for, clinging tooth and claw onto a wonderful past. At least we only have One Mcdonalds out of town and pubs instead of bars. I like to go see a place not go to been seen at a place- like a frat bar.

Kitty said...

it's a great, big bar and the drinks are pretty reasonable. For some reason too, you can always find space to sit.

I like this area. You can get great, cheap falafels around the corner at Mamoun's.

Tanya said...

Looks like a cool hangout and such a history! I like the name :)

Cyd said...

Detest that name -- hate the moronic patrons that throng the sidewalk smoking their cancer-sticks and trying to hook up -- oblivious to people trying to WALK on the SIDE WALK. Make it go away!

Ken Mac said...

thanks for the comments everybody. I think Cyd has issues!

Paz said...

LOL! I love both names.
