The Scoop on Scullers
Don’t let the exterior fool you – while Scullers is housed in a Doubletree Hotel and tucked away from the neighborhoods known for their nightlife, this venue knows how to provide a timeless jazz club feel. The acoustics are good, and they turn the lights down low and cluster the chairs for an intimate environment; when the music starts playing, you could be in any decade and any city that has a roaring jazz scene.
The Yoko Miwa Trio plays an annual fall show at Scullers, and this year’s will be on November 20 at 8 pm. Tickets are available online, or you can call the box office at 617-562-4111. Get them soon, because this show has sold out in the past.
If you are looking for a really relaxing evening, go for the dinner and show package, so you can enjoy a three-course prix fixe meal and just saunter over to the club to listen to the Yoko Miwa Trio. In addition to the dinner at The Green Room, audience members with the package ticket get priority seating for the show.
Parking in the hotel garage is $10. While many Yelp reviewers recommend taking a cab (it’s easy from Central Square) for comfort on a breezy fall night, there are also a number of buses that take you along Cambridge Street right by Scullers. The venue is wheelchair-accessible. Dressy attire is expected, so get ready for a stylish night out!
