“Intimate venue”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

This is a good place to see performers up close and personal - the seating is tight, but not oppressive, and the acoustics are fine. It's general admission, and prime tables often are reserved for 'friends of the band,' but the room is small enough to make the experience enjoyable wherever you are seated. Drinks are expensive - as they are just about everywhere! We take advantage of the "show and stay" package, which offers a special room rate at the Doubletree, where the club is located. Although we have enjoyed the prix fixe, pre-reserved dinner in the hotel's restaurant, it is expensive - in the future, I think we'll just order from the menu. Parking is free for guests of the hotel; $35 for just the club.
We think it's one of the most affordable. enjoyable ways to spend a weekend in Boston without breaking the bank. If you live within reasonable driving distance of the city, and you like Jazz, check out the Scullers schedule, and book yourself a delightful weekend!

“Horrible experience”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

Cold air blowing from ceiling vents was prompting patrons to put on their coats.
Music set was barely an hour long.
Swipe card provided to exit parking garage did not work (this happened to at least 3 cars).
Pressing button for assistance brought none.

Perfect for a show - very intimate little tables, small room and good service.

“"FORGET ABOUT IT"”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

I came to Boston specifically to see a particular performance. Having purchased tickets way in advance, I thought I'd get a good seat. Well, I didn't actually "see" anything except the backs of heads. In addition, when I called the hotel about the advertised "jazz overnighter package," they didn't seem to know what I was talking about. Hailing from a city with a great local jazz, and good venues, and lots of artists on tour, I will NEVER come to this club again!
