The Hat – is the place any jazzman, who is free this evening, can visit. “And it doesn’t matter if speaks German or not, there’s always a more rich language present – the jazz language”. But only the most professional and talented artists end up on stage here – improvisation, which is the core of the jam requires top class performing.
Today classic jazz is rarely found, and so the owners place their stake exactly on it. Every night the audience have the possibility to enjoy high quality live sound absolutely for free. Moreover, they can do it not in a concert hall or night club, which both put listener in a certain frames, but in a bar while enjoying favorite drink.
The Hat Bar Berlin carries on the traditions of it's older brother from St.Petersburg. Vincent Arp is our Musical Director and talented contrabass player, responsible for the jam sessions. We start with a trio of always rotating, best jazz musicians from Berlin and around the world, every night of the week at 9pm.
The place is oriented not on jazz lovers only. The accent is made by the founders, that The Hat is not a jazz-club, it’s a bar in the first place! Here you can pass the time, drinking with company or on your own. It’s obvious, that this kind of place attracts different kind of people. In this case jazz music acts as some kind of an intellectual face-control, providing the bar with the right guests, who came here for a special atmosphere.
