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:


 
Julian Hipkins
Saturday, December 1

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 standard or delivering a heartfelt ballad. Julian is joined by Robert Redd, piano, and Eric Harper, bass.


 
Saturday, December 8

The Alex will be closed for a private event.


 
Alison Crockett
Saturday, December 15

Alison Crockett
"Mix Nina Simone’s urgency, Betty Carter’s chops and Jill Scott’s sass, and you'll get the bold and bravura vocalist Alison Crockett," says the Philadelphia Weekly. D.C. audiences are quickly realizing that Alison’s shows are more than just music, they’re events not to be missed ‚Äď unpredictable, exciting and always entertaining.

 
Lena Seikaly
Saturday, December 22

Lena Seikaly
Lena Seikaly has established herself among the ranks of the city's most in-demand vocalists. She's been an artist in residence at Strathmore and a semi-finalist in the Thelonius Monk Competition. She's performed at the city's top venues, from Blues Alley to the Kennedy Center. The City Paper's Mike West calls her most recent CD "the work of a supremely confident master of her instrument."

 
Bonnie Harris
Saturday, December 29

Bonnie Harris
Bonnie Harris combines a winning stage presence and soulful vocals with a deep sense of swing reminiscent of Etta Jones and Gloria Lynne. Long a favorite of DC jazz fans, she's appeared at festivals and clubs throughout the region. Bonnie is a singer who knows how to connect with a song, and an audience.
