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, February 17

Nico Sarbanes
Baltimore native Nico Sarbanes is a jazz vocalist, trumpeter and composer who, at 23, 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.

 
Lena Seikaly
Saturday, February 24

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 calls her most recent CD "the work of a supremely confident master of her instrument."

 
Shacara Rogers
Saturday, March 3

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.

 
Elin
Saturday, March 10

Elin
Downbeat Magazine says Elin's debut CD "has all the wonder of a magical discovery." One of DC's leading performers of Brazilian music, Elin has twice sold out Dizzy's Club at Jazz at Lincoln Center and toured worldwide. She also collaborates with the renowned Thievery Corporation.
