Speakeasy Jazz nights at Alex

Join us at the Alex Craft Cocktail Cellar, where we feature the region's top jazz vocalists every Saturday evening. We also present live music on Thursday and Friday nights — visit here for a complete schedule.


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:

Alison Crockett
Saturday, February 4

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."

Sharon Clark
Saturday, February 11

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."

Paige Wroble
Saturday, February 18

Paige Wroble
If you have not had the chance to experience the precision, power and improvisatory mastery of Paige Wroble, do not miss this rare small group appearance. A classically trained singer at home in several genres, Paige is currently the vocalist with the Airmen of Note, the premiere jazz ensemble of the U.S. Air Force.

Akua Allrich
Saturday, February 25

Akua Allrich
Akua Allrich is a fresh new voice whose stage presence, vocal chops and joy in performing are gaining notice in DC and beyond. "If you hear (as you often do) that contemporary jazz seems to be missing soul, it's because all of the soul of a generation has been concentrated into Akua Allrich." - Michael J. West, Washington City Paper.
