The Black Cat is located on the 3rd floor of the old world Sycamore Square building and offers a warm and welcoming charm, accented by exposed brick, original hardwood floors and over-sized windows showcasing views of Fairhaven & Bellingham Bay. Our socialhouse atmosphere has been an attraction to locals and visitors for decades. It is the perfect place to share an intimate cocktail, join a group for Happy Hour or to throw a party in our Cat’s Alley!

The Black Cat has been around since 1987. It took the place of La Creperie, which was closed down in 1983 after a fire and notorious drug bust. The area had been gutted, and the restaurant was restored with a French Cabaret theme, and named the new restaurant Le Chat Noir, The Black Cat. The current Black Cat was renovated in 2013 and continues to be a fun, casual gathering spot for neighbors, families and visitors to enjoy great drinks, local beers and American bistro-style food.
