A word from Hip Kitty Jazz & Fondue
Hip Kitty is a swanky and intimate jazz supper club and lounge located in downtown Claremont’s Village. Located in a renovated 1922 Packing House, the warm and eclectic vintage décor takes you back to an era when jazz was subversive and fondue was all the rage. Hip Kitty is classy but casual and over 21 only- a great place for a date night or a special celebration. The retro menu features a wide selection of cheese, chocolate, and meat & seafood fondues in addition to our lounge food menu. Live music is featured on our stage 6 nights a week. Check out our entertainment calendar and our full menu at www.hipkittyjazz.com. Hip Kitty also has a large outdoor patio with private cabanas and a fire pit. Reservations are for fondue dining only (cocktail and appetizer service is always first come-first serve). The last dinner reservation is at 8 pm, walk-ins thereafter for service until midnight. Fri/Sat-$5cover, $10 per person food requirement for booth seating.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Hip Kitty has a fabulous ambiance. Great decor and lighting. The food and drink are excellent. I went on a night where the entertainment was also superb which MADE the entire experience that much better. Phat Cat Swinger was performing and they fit into this scene perfectly. The high energy and great music of this amazing swing band in combination with the hip hot spot made for an amazing night."

  • "This place is a lot of fun and the band was fabulous. Although, there needs to be more gluten free options on the menu (ie; gluten free crackers for the cheese plate, gluten free breads for the sandwiches, etc.)."

Had a great time; nice ambiance was the music was great…we were entertained by the Phat Cats. Many of us decided to take Swing Lessons; it was fun watch the people dance. Good food and drinks; the crowd was amazing and everyone was so friendly. Looking forward to next visit to Hip Kitty."

  • "We've been coming here for a year now... Food is really good and fresh and always consistent amin taste and quality. Drinks depend on bartender and not always the same ( unless its beer or vine). Overall always good service nice selection of music , I would recommend to make reservation as there is not too many seats available by the bar without it."

  • "My mother and I came here on a Wednesday night for dinner. Chad was our server. It was my first time having fondue and he did a great job of explaining how it all worked. We orderedt the dinner for 2, which for $108 comes with a bottle of wine, cheese fondue, meat fondue, and dessert. By the time the meat fondue came out, I was so full. And they give you your own portions of meat, fruit, veggies, etc. Love this place and I will definitely be back. By the way, the music is awesome. It's cool to hear local talent performing as you eat such awesome food."

  • "This is a hip night spot in the Claremont Packing area. Great if you want an interactive meal and live music. We enjoyed a cheese fondue appetizer, meat fondue main course, and dessert fondue finale. A little pricey if you do all the fondues with drinks, but definitely worth it once in awhile."

  • "The Hip Kitty is a fabulous place to celebrate any occasion, but it's perfect for a romantic dinner for two that allows for silent moments over fondue, great conversation over the great music and on stage performance, all with a reasonable price range for hours of entertainment. The parking is incredibly easy, the location is safe, and there's tons to do around this place while waiting for your reserved time. Reservations highly recommended an well worth it!"

  • "Great jazz! Great,fun fondue! Love the dinner for two menu, but it can easily feed 3 folks and includes wine for $100. Love this place! Very fun!"

  • "The cover is only $5 but the fondue is pricey! Sandwiches are reasonable but drink beforehand at $8-12 a drink. Switchblade 3 is a superb band!"

  • "I thought this place was great. Called for reservations around 2 on a Saturday and got an 8:15 seating, second row. The chicken, bacon, asparagus was cooked right at the table by your server, it was delicious. The only thing is that we ordered the seafood dip for appetizers, a orange, strawberry and pecan salad and then our Macaroni and Cheese, problem is they were all served at the same time. Table not big enough for that, but otherwise really good. The jazz band was really fun and great to dance to."

  • "Hip Kitty is different and fun! Music is always entertaining, not often conventional but always fun and lively. A great place to have a few drinks, dinner if you are into fondue and a fun atmosphere. We will be back soon!"

    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "The food and drinks were excellent. Between 8-10 the crowd was older and mixed. After 10 it shifted to a much younger 20 something group. What really set the mood for a fun night was the band (Switchblade 3). I would highly recommend the Kitty for a fun night out; however, be sure to check what band is playing that night. The music offerings can vary greatly and a band or music type you don't enjoy will spoil what would otherwise be a fantastic evening."

  • "It was just alright . Band was just okay. No desire to rush back next year. Seems overall crowd comes yearly to hear the band but I will pass on the experience as well as the fondue ."
    Dined on 12/21/2013
  • "This was my first time at the Hip Kitty and loved the experience, food and Ambience. There were some things that you didn't have from the menu, which isn't good. We were a little dissapointed about that. Also, as we were celebrating my birthday it would have been nice to have been brought a dessert to the table as most restaurants do. Nevertheless, I will recommend the Hip Kitty to anyone. Thanks, Carolyn Alvarez"

  • "We had a blast at Hip Kitty Jazz & Fondue! Open table reservations locked us in great booth to enjoy the venue (which was great by the way), at a perfect time. We really enjoyed our much needed girls night out! Loved the food, really enjoyed the amount of time and service we received for our meal. We were really able to soak up the ambiance, and leisurely enjoy our cheese appetizer fondue, as well as our main course fondue! We will defiantly plan another "Girls Night Out" @ Hip Kitty! Loved it!!"

  • "The place in it self was great. It was a little warm, I'm assuming because of the pots, therefore, it would be nice if they cool it down a bit because of it. Also, service was a little slow, workers were friendly but we had to wait a while before someone checked our table to begin with and ate half way through our meal before we can ask someone for a fork."
