The Alex is an intimate cocktail lounge and restaurant with an eclectic dťcor and varied menu of American fare. Settle in to one of the overstuffed Empire sofas, sip hand crafted beverages from our craft cocktail menu, share appetizers or enjoy a three course dinner, all while experiencing the classic stylings of these incredible vocalists and musicians.


This authentic craft cocktail cellar and speakeasy at the Graham Georgetown is the ideal venue to celebrate these exciting artists on Saturdays from 8pm to 11pm:

Sharon Clark
Saturday, April 1

Sharón Clark
Come see why critics and audiences alike cheer for DC sensation Sharón Clark. The Wall Street Journal raves: "new and amazing . . . an absolute triumph," and the NY Times agrees: "You canít underestimate the transformation of what seems like an ordinary song when an interpreter like Sharón Clark tears it apart and peers inside."

Julian Hipkins
Saturday, April 8

Julian Hipkins
Powerful and swinging vocals are always on hand when Julian Hipkins hits the stage. Long a favorite of DC jazz fans, he's a performer who knows how to connect with a song, whether he's shouting a blues like Jimmy Rushing, swinging a Sinatra standard or delivering a heartfelt ballad.

Alison Crockett
Saturday, April 15

Alison Crockett
"Mix Nina Simoneís urgency, Betty Carter's chops and Jill Scott's sass, and youíll get the bold and bravura vocalist Alison Crockett," says the Philadelphia Weekly. Alison's shows are more than just music, they're events not to be missed Ė unpredictable, exciting and always entertaining.

Lena Seikaly
Saturday, April 22

Lena Seikaly
Lena Seikaly has quickly joined the ranks of the city's most in-demand vocalists. She's been a semifinalist in the Thelonius Monk Competition, an artist in residence at Strathmore, and she's performed at the city's top venues. The City Paper calls her most recent CD "the work of a supremely confident master of her instrument."

Stephanie Nakasian
Saturday, April 29

Stephanie Nakasian
It's easy to to why has hailed Stephanie Nakasian as the "the Renaissance woman of jazz." She has more than a dozen albums to her credit, including her recent "Billie Remembered," which was featured on NPR's "Fresh Air" with Terry Gross. She's performed across the globe, including performances at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the North Sea Jazz Festival and the Kennedy Center, and she's appeared with a who's-who of the jazz world, including Pat Metheny, Bobby McFerrin, Milt Hinton, Clark Terry, Scott Hamilton, Harry Allen, Sheila Jordan, Bob Dorough, Valery Ponomarev and (with Jon Hendricks) Philly Joe Jones, Roy Haynes, and Annie Ross.
