A great place to go and enjoy an evening. Favorite to hang out with friends. Check the website for the bands that are scheduled to play. Fondue is good too! Easy parking.

I went with my brother who goes to school in Claremont. Paid $5 for a Stella, which is usual. Great band and a smoking patio with fireplace. It was my kinda juke joint. Great local hipster and rockabilly crowd.

The Village West in Claremont's downtown area is trying hard. Really, really hard. Three Forks isn't quite cutting it, and neither are the Mediteranean nor Thai restaurants. On a whim, we decided to visit the Hip Kitty Jazz & Fondue Club. Here are our impressions....More
