The Black Cat, Cafe by Day, Bar by night, featuring DJ's, Great Food, Outside Garden, Art Exhibitions, Coffee and the best atmosphere in Fitzroy

Black Cat Bar is a trendy and relaxing restaurant during the day and a funky nightclub style bar during the evenings. It is a place frequented by local students and people who enjoy a drop of red and white through out the day. From 11am and through lunch they offer a food menu that has a range of sandwiches, pastas, focaccias and pies. DJâ??s play a range of funky music, but for those who enjoy a more quiet glass there is a more quiet garden area outside.

I have to admit that I absolutely love this bar, though I don't get around to visiting it anywhere near as often as I would like to actually visit it – probably because work gets in the way, and if I come down here too much I'd end up spending much more money than I really want to. However, the place just has this awesome atmosphere with some incredible staff. While it doesn't have a traditional beer garden, they had done up the sidewalk to make it stand out quite a lot. Another thing that I've noticed is that this place has the privilege of appearing on Truelocal's homepage, though I have known about this place much longer than I have been on Truelocal.

Tried black cat on recommendation.
Take away coffee was 'ok' but not great!
Slightly bitter and so cool it was COLD!
I asked for extra hot....!
Won't call again - shame as it has a nice vibe!

Great pizza! Love the chilled out vibe. Like being in someone's lounge, but with a bar in the corner! Friendly staff, happy punters. Have been a couple of times now and will be taking friends from out of town next week. Highly recommend.

The Black Cat has been going for a very, very long time and is a big part of the Melbourne student scene and a Melbourne icon. It's not just a cafe; it has art shows (one of which I attended and was excellent), DJs and generally a lot happening. It's a casual, friendly place with a great vibe. It has a sprawling feel that sort of makes it feel like you're visiting someone's home. There is a lovely outside area as well. Drinks and food are reasonably-priced.

Intrigued by the sudden flurry of potplants, cacti, bamboo and miscellaneous greenery that appeared before me while walking along Brunswick Street, I had to check out the Black Cat. With a funky, relaxed atmosphere, the Black Cat is a cafe/bar which serves reasonably priced drinks and coffees, and also offers a range of lunchy munchables (foccacias, sandwiches and pasta to name a few) during the day. I particularly appreciated the outdoor seating area - an undercover oasis of peaceful greenery, where patrons can enjoy their food and beverages even when the weather turns particularly Melbourne. Inside, the decor is a comfortable combination of studentesque and arty, including interesting paintwork & lighting, photography on the walls, and a range of comfy seating options. My only complaint regarding this otherwise marvellously groovy establishment was the lacklustre restrooms, which offered neither rest nor room. Nonetheless, I would return, and highly ...read more
