The new expanded Scat Cat's Club Lounge and Cafe is open for jazz music and beignets

Summary: The new expanded Scat Cat's Club Lounge and Cafe is open, including evening jazz music and beignets

There were two grand openings at Port Orleans French Quarter today. The existing Scat Cat's Club, located just off the main Lobby, closed its doors for the last time on 29 September, only to emerge phoenix-like this morning as two separate entities.


Scat Cat's Club - Café had its opening ceremony at 6am this morning, and our intrepid reporter John Schmidt wasn't going to be put off by the early hour and snapped some photos and videoed the ceremony for the site. This will be the new official home for beignets at the resort - both regular, specialty and even alcoholic - and it will also function as the pickup location for any orders placed at the nearby food court. See the Scat Cat's Club page for the menu.

Later, at 4pm, the main Scat Cat's Club Lounge bar area opened its doors, and John was of course back to cover it for us. He also placed the first drink ordered at the new location; the sacrifices that man makes for the team! :) The new expanded lounge/bar is located in space vacated when the old Bonfamille's Cafe - the original table-service location during the early days of Port Orleans - closed down on 5th August 2000. The specialty cocktails and bar snacks menu seems to be exactly the same as it was before, nothing new has been added.

We'll be adding more photos to the main site soon, but the above Facebook page links are the quickest way to keep everyone in touch.
