AT FAT CAT ( review)

Name: Fat cat
Category : Bars, Pubs, Lounges
Address: Veera desai road (andheri west), Mumbai
      Recently on my friend's birthday we decided to check out this place. The name itself is catchy. And hence it kindled the curiosity to try it out.
  Let's talk about the ambeince first. It is located in a residential area of veera desai road. There are tables to sit outdoors but I really found it congested.It is not what you would fancy for an 'open-air'. The inside however is well managed for space. Its a small intimate setting, with lots of wood work giving it that earthy feel. There is a small bar at the entrance and a stage where there is live music played on certain occasions which includes weekends.
     Next moving onto the drinks, service and food. The alcohol menu had everything what any regular bar would. We ordered Bailey's and old monk. For appetizers we ordered chillie chicken, bruceshetta. My friends who had chicken found it delicious whereas the bruschetta was rather bland and lacked flavor. Next we ordered a round of kamakazee shots which had a special offer : buy 4 shots and get another 2 for free. The shots were the worst part from everything we had. The lime and blue shots were so diluted we couldn't tell the difference between a lemonade and a shot. Next we ordered a veg pizza. There wasn't much to choose from when it came to main cource especially in veg as the whole menu lacked variety. The pizza was thin crust and was not something we would go 'yumm' for. We also went for a veg tangy pasta which was better than the pizza taste wise.
      The place started filling up after 9.30. The band came and the vocalist was a girl who sang coldplay and lots of other songs. The guitarists were damn good. Overall it was fun to have them. The total bill came down to 3,000.
It is definitely a tad bit overpriced.So all in all its a place to visit if you are looking to have some light fun and drinks. If you are looking to only eat good food, this is definitely not the place.
Ambience : 4/5
Alcohol: 3/5
Overall environment: 4/5
Value for money: 3/5
