One harbors certain expectations when entering a jazz club in New York City. A list of classic cocktails is a must, and it goes without saying that smooth, soulful music should be playing at all times. A night at Fat Cat might prove to be a jarring experience in light of such expectations. Cocktails and jazz are certainly well represented, but the club’s patrons eschew hushed reverence. Any musicians who take the stage must be prepared to compete with the clacking of billiard balls and the cheers that break out during foosball games. Fortunately, they are so talented that they nearly always win out. After their sets, they might even join in on lively games of backgammon, chess, and “Who Wants to Pay the Bar Tab?”.

Since 1991, countless 8-balls have sunk into the corner pockets of the 15-plus Brunswick Gold Crown III tables at Eastside Billiards & Bar. Amateurs and pool sharks alike line up shots during by-the-hour rounds, games in Eastside?s year-round coed league, or lessons geared toward all ages and skill levels. Other gamesmen and women can whack ping pong balls, test their aim at skeeball, or admire the alphabet?s most valuable letter during games of Golden Tee. Sports also unfold on Eastside?s seven big-screen TVs, which decorate a cocktail lounge where patrons can relax with a choice of 20 beers and more than a dozen specialty cocktails.

It’s not easy opening a restaurant and lounge that stands out in NYC, but the Big Apple’s Slate manages to do just that. The interior design of this establishment is the perfect marriage of sleekness and functionality. With their large, comfortable sofas, squishy plush chairs, and spacious lounge area, everything about Slate encourages socialization. Slate also features a surreptitiously hidden VIP lounge and dining area called the Studio, which is soundproofed and completely detachable from the main lounge, perfect for some private, late-night revelry. There’s something for everyone at Slate, with ping pong and foosball tables in the basement and a dance floor upstairs.
