With a great music lineup and unbeatable atmosphere, Hip Kitty Jazz & Fondue has become a staple in Claremont for those looking for true sophistication. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays feature mostly rock/indie acts, but Friday, Saturday and Sunday are where it’s at for those looking for a jazzy time.
Hip Kitty books a truly diverse set of jazz musicians, from straight ahead trios to small big bands and even a smattering of Latin jazz thrown in the mix. Sets are usually 8 p.m. to midnight and many of the acts are really swingin’, so come prepared with your dancing shoes. Cover charges often apply.
