Speakeasy Jazz nights at The Alex

Join us at The Alex Craft Cocktail Cellar, where we feature the region's top jazz artists every Saturday evening. This series sells out nearly every week, so make your reservations today at OpenTable.


THE VENUE

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.


THE TALENT

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:


 
Nico Sarbanes
Saturday, November 3

Nico Sarbanes
Baltimore native Nico Sarbanes is a jazz vocalist, trumpeter and composer who, at 24, is already emerging as one of the city's most talented young performers. Nico combines a virtuosic technique on the trumpet with an impressive command of the vocal repertoire of the Great American Songbook. As a composer, he draws on his jazz and classical influences, as well as the klezmer music of his Jewish heritage, to create exciting new works.

 
Akua Allrich
Saturday, November 10

Akua Allrich
Akua Allrich is a fresh new voice whose stage presence, vocal chops and joy in performing have gained noticed in DC and beyond. The City Paper's Mike West raves: "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." Frank Matzner of All About Jazz agrees: "Akua Allrich's music flows with a free, natural energy as engaging as her equally ingenuous personality."

 
Nicole Saphos
Saturday, November 17

Nicole Saphos
For as long as she can remember, jazz bassist and singer-songwriter Nicole Saphos has always gotten lost in the elegant emotionality of The Great American Songbook. The Los Angeles native graduated from Temple University in 2012, relocated to DC, and began her professional music career in earnest. She’s performed at such venerated venues as The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Strathmore Mansion, and The Kimmel Center, among others. Downbeat Magazine describes her as a “distinctive & warm presence on the bandstand”. In Fall 2016, she released her critically acclaimed debut album, “Tiptoe”.

 
Shacara Rogers
Saturday, November 24

Shacara Rogers
Howard University alum Shacara Rogers has been performing since the age of five. She captured first place in the 2015 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival Vocal Competition and was first runner-up in the 2014 Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Jazz Competition. Shacara received a Downbeat award for her performance at Howard, where she was a lead soloist with the renowned Afro Blue, and she was selected for the prestigious Betty Carter Jazz Ahead Program at the Kennedy Center.
