449 L.A. aka SCAT

In the spirit of celebrating the culture and creativity that lives in Harlem, 449 L.A. (also known as SCAT) is a performance venue that opened back in 2003. Serving as a dedication to Harlem's integral part in the American jazz music scene, 449 L.A. creates an atmosphere reminiscent of the gatherings that took place in the past—parties featuring live music and good times minus pretentious attitudes. As the drink selection is limited and there is no food menu, SCAT isn't a spot to go to on an empty stomach. But for a good time with artists and those who love their work, head up to W 142nd, grab a seat (and a drum), and join the band.
