I have been there twice, once with a reservation and once without. I would not go if I did not have a reservation. It will be standing room only as it is not that large of a place. The decor and ambiance could use a little help, it is average at best. Revue who is playing before you go. If... More

Great drinks, great jazz! Many tables have an obstructed view. Make sure you will not be behind a collumn...you will not see the band at all. But go! It is awesome!

Recent transplants and music lovers, this was our first visit to Scat, celebrating a birthday. We'd made reservations and we were seated at a tiny high top table that was had a column on our right and bar patrons about 6 inches behind us. I immediately asked for another table as there were many still available. The hipster millennial let... More

This hidden alley gem was so delightful! When the elevator opened to this dark candle-lit club I felt I was in the 1940s. Even some of the cocktails were vintage. The music schedule is ongoing throughout the month.

This place is tucked away on a side street. If weren't for our segway guide Tim we wouldn't have known it was there. What a treasure. We took an elevator down from the alleyway making us think it's going to be a... less than nice place, but when the elevator door opened we were pleasantly surprised. It was dimly lit... More

We visited on a Tuesday evening and surprised to find a great jazz band. There was no cover charge and drinks reasonably priced. We will definitely be back..

I'm in Fort Worth several times a year, and always make a point to stop in here and catch a few sets here. This place is well worth visiting, whether you are a local or out-of-towner visiting the area!
