Catch Live Jazz Music at Blues Alley

Posted On: September 12

Blues Alley boasts many high-profile fans. A New York Times critic, for instance, called it, "The nation's finest jazz and supper club." Washingtonian Magazine has lauded it as the city's "best night spot." Renowned jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie himself once said of Blues Alley, "Now this is a jazz club."

With glowing reviews like these, it's easy to understand why this well-established jazz club tends to attract a crowd. Since it first opened in 1965, the intimate music venue has attracted the likes of Sarah Vaughan, Charlie Byrd, and, of course, Dizzy Gillespie. The nightly live music, paired with Creole and Cajun cuisine, makes for a fun date night in historic Georgetown. Grab your tickets to the show in advance or at the door, and make sure you arrive by 6 p.m. if you want to have dinner beforehand.
