Most people know the Catalyst primarily as a music venue, but Santa Cruz bar-goers know it's much more than that. Upstairs there's actually a solid dive bar with six pool tables, a jukebox, and even a few arcade games. The smoke-filled lounge is not for the weak of lung, but the cheap Budweisers and multiple pool tables sure make it a good late-night option.
