Does this restaurant have live jazz music?
About
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".

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went there during a long week end break. They have live music every night with awesome musicians. The bartender will always answer to your desires when it's about cocktail elaboration ! Definitely the best place we've been in our evenings spent in St Petersburg.

A classic jazz club -- attentive crowd, creative musicians, a little grungy around the edges. We got there early and pulled up a seat on a window ledge, sipping vodka until, around 10 pm, when some nondescript guy say down at the upright piano. "Nondescript" until fingers touched keyboard. I won't claim that it's the greatest jazz you ever heard, but the guy was truly good. As the night went on, more players arrived (jams only, no scheduled performers) -- some taking the stage, some waiting their turn at the designated table -- and the crowd swelled to standing room only. At some point, they seemed to start asking a cover charge, but us early arrivers got in free. Sadly, fatigue caught up with us relatively early -- 1 am, or so --just as the joint really started to swing. A great place to be if your U.S. body clock is keeping you awake (we had been in country for a week, so not so much for us). Next time, we'll take a nap and stay all night.

Small and intimate, with a cozy atmosphere and a decent variety of drinks including creative cocktails, this bar is great entertainment for late nights in St. Petersburg. Local and invited musicians jam from 11 PM until 3 AM on any given night. Highly recommended!

The musicians were superb, the drinks (white wine, rose wine, cocktails) were quite bad and spoiled the general impression. Also, the toilets are horrible — how difficult would it be to install normal doors there, so that other customers don't see who is inside? Right now it's just embarrassing and uncouth.

Great place to spend night time. Entrance deposit 250 RUB (you'll get a chip for 250 RUB for bar). Note: credit cards are available for payment from 500 RUB.

Intimate ultra cool live Jazz bar serving a wonderful collection of whiskey and other cocktails and drinks. Went here on two separate nights: both times the place was packed and full of life. If you’re looking for a cracking night out in St Petersburg, then this is the venue.

Spent a month in St Petersburg and this place was a regular for me and friends. Good music, honest musicians, good crowd and friendly atmosphere. Would stop by in for a drink, listen to some music and then move onwards.

Was alive and crowded till the wee hours of the morning. It was packed with locals. There was live jazz music. Everyone was enjoying themselves. Fun and local flavor.

One of the good ones in the city center. Cocktails, spirits, music - this is the place to taste it. Lots of people on weekends.

Great little place for a drink and super jazz. The bartender was a little abrupt when we asked for a menu (as he was with others that did the same). Super selection of drinks - and seemed willing to make what you would like. Cosy, friendly atmosphere.

If you want to spend a really awesome jazzy night out, that's a place to go. No show-off, posh style. Great place with drinks, although toilets are quite dirty...

In the bar they don't have the menu list and they cheat you if you see you are a tourist. Dishonest barmen
