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.

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.

Scat Cat’s does not currently have its own permanent resident musicians, however various temporary acts (and even a DJ) have been keeping the guests entertained in the meantime. For example a singer named Andy Burr had a semi-regular slot for a few months.

Currently you are most likely to find Jason Thomas and Billy Varnes, two members of the fabulous Off Kilter rock band which used to perform in Epcot’s Canada pavilion, sometimes joined by Mulch, Sweat & Shears’ Greg Hayworth. Their dates are only announced a month or so in advance (generally most Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays, 8:30pm—11pm) but if you happen to be around when they are playing do yourself a favour and pop along, they are highly recommended. See the Recreation Schedules page for this month’s dates.

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.
