Scat Cat’s Club Review

Scat Cat’s Club Review

Port Orleans’ French Quarters is characterized by all the romance and history that the real New Orleans has to offer. From cobblestone streets to Mardi Gras-themed pool areas, there is no knowing what beauty and culture you’ll find in the lamp light. Whether you’re here with the family or taking a romantic getaway, Port Orleans is the place to be on a Saturday night, or any other night for that matter!

Apart from the sights and sounds, New Orleans is known for its food and, more importantly, drinks. Scat Cat’s Club is one of Port Orleans best lounges, offering some southern favorites as well as some specialty drinks when the ingredients are on tap. One of the main attractions of Scat Cat’s, in addition to the full bar, appears Wednesday through Saturday from 8:30 PM to midnight, and that’s Elliot Dyson, blues extraordinaire. That’s right. Scat Cat’s Club is all about booze and blues, a fact we quickly found out as we strolled on in.

Although the lounge was quiet as we approached, the atmosphere was loose, and we took our time browsing the memorabilia on the walls. When we finally took our place at the bar, the cast member behind the counter turned on a persona that brought us even further into the theme of the place. Friendly and informative, he gave us a rundown of the full bar, lamenting the fact that they were out of some of their secret drink ingredients. However, he cheerfully suggested a Classic Hurricane, a local favorite that will have you feeling like you just came out of a wind tunnel. Agreeing that this is precisely what this reviewer needed, it came rushing in like a waterspout.

 

Starting off with a splash of orange juice, a bit of pineapple juice and just a hint of lime, the tropical flavors were out of the way. After, there came the hurricane relief efforts in the form of select light and dark rums. These light and dark layers are what make the Classic Hurricane different from the Sassagoula Swamp Water. A Sassagoula Swamp Water, which we had lamented early for the lack of a certain secret ingredient, is similarly made with only a single rum, gin, tequila, and fruit juice. But this reviewer was more than satisfied with the beautifully blended Hurricane presented by this skilled bartender. If you get a chance, try both!

There is no doubt this realm of New Orleans culture will enthrall even the most uncertain patron. From the saxophones and banjos to the Hurricanes and Swamp Waters, you are bound to love Scat Cat’s Club. Sure, it’s New Orleans, but it’s also Disney. With these two things wrapped up in one, you can’t go wrong. A visit to Port Orleans is certainly not complete without a stop in at Scat Cat’s Club. You won’t regret it.

Food: Perfect for some small bites and saucy drinks, Scat Cat’s Club has a full bar just waiting to be tapped. Indulge in a Sassagoula Swamp Water or the ever-popular Hurricane, aptly named for New Orleans’ tendency to get caught up in whirling winds and rain. You’ll no doubt feel like a whirl wind after one of those.

Atmosphere: With walls covered in memorabilia, a mock patio, and a stage for piping out bluesy tunes, Scat Cat’s Club is a swampland sensation. You get the classic feel of southern blues culture that can only be recreated by the magic of Disney.

Service: Friendly and knowledgeable, the bartender at Scat Cat’s Club was able to give us some history as well as recommend some New Orleans favorites. It’s the kind of place where you can comfortably get chummy with your server as you get loose.

Tips: Make sure you catch Scat Cat’s on a night when live is a sure thing. The atmosphere is kicking and the good times come rolling in. It’s also a great place to relax with a drink once the kids are off the sleep.
