Description: The Hat is a classical American jam-set bar of 40s-50s version. The bar uniqueness is in it's nightly live jam-sessions, which are believed by the owners of the bar to be most interesting and lively thing in jazz. The Hat is a 'must visit' place for almost all world-famous jazz musician touring in St-Petersburg. Among the visitors were Louis Heyes, Steve Grossman, Nino katamadze, Bill Charlap, Jason Brown, Peter Washington, Joe Farnsworth, Mark Gross, Michelle Walker, Sharon Clark, Omar Torez, Tiger Lillies and many others. Despite their worldwide fame, all of them participated in jam-sessions for free, just for the sake of arts. We don't have "special guests" here, as we don't have gigs schedule. But if one asks, what will be tomorrow, he'll get a firm & constant answer - There will be jazz".
