Scat Cat’s Club at Port Orleans French Quarter

Discover the Port Orleans Backstory...
Just off the Port Orleans French Quarter main lobby you are invited to relax in the jazzy Scat Cat’s Club lounge. Memorabilia from the great jazz musicians lines the walls, setting the tone for a laid-back evening. You can take in your favourite cocktail or specialty drink and enjoy Scat Cat’s snacks and appetizers.

When the ‘Hurricane’ cocktail is mentioned, New Orleans should come to mind. The Hurricane originated in New Orleans during World War II because of the whiskey shortage; rum was plentiful though, and it became the platform for a great number of fun and unique combinations. The lounge’s special Hurricanes are poured into a hurricane lamp shaded glass, which distinguishes the presentation, while tickling the palate with bountiful flavours.

Scat Cat’s does not currently have its own permanent resident evening musician since Tom Casey left at the end of March 2015, however various temporary musical acts have been filling in and keeping the guests entertained in the meantime.

Currently, the lounge features DJ-oriented music a couple of nights a week, and a singer named Andy Burr has a semi-regular Sunday/Monday 8pm—11pm slot playing Louisiana-themed music (Cajun, zydeco, New Orleans pop classics, and some other songs of the south) on guitar, harmonica and vocals. His act seems to be going down well with the French Quarter regulars, so hopefully Disney will take note and his position might be made permanent. Andy has also performed at the 4th of July celebrations at Riverside, along with his band The PorchDogs, and at other locations in Walt Disney World.

Tom Casey performed at Scat Cat’s from 19 July 2013 until the end of March 2015, playing a mixture of lounge classics and guest requests. Prior to that, French Quarter’s long-time resident musician was the multi-talented saxophonist and vocalist Elliot Dyson who was let go at the end of May 2013 due to an extended closure during lobby refurbishment work.

Large screen TV available for sports events/etc.

Disney’s “Tables in Wonderland” discount card is accepted at this location.

Opening Hours: 4pm — midnight

Abita Brewing Company is nestled in the piney woods 30 miles north of New Orleans. Abita’s ales and lagers are brewed in small batches and handcrafted with only the highest standards for quality.

Abita Amber is a Munich-style lager brewed with crystal malt and Perle hops. It has a smooth, malty, slightly caramel flavor, and a rich amber color.
Abita Purple Haze is a crisp, American-style wheat beer with raspberries, which provide the lager with a subtle purple coloration and haze, a fruity aroma, and a tartly sweet taste.
Abita Turbodog is a dark brown ale brewed with Willamette hops and a combination of British pale, crystal and chocolate malts, giving it a rich body and a sweet chocolate-toffee-like flavor.
