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 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:

Julian Hipkins
Saturday, August 4

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 James King, bass.

Sara Jones
Saturday, August 11

Sara Jones
Sara Jones, winner of the Billie Holiday Competition, brings her precise and graceful vocals to the best-loved songs of Brazilian jazz and the Great American Songbook. Her most recent CD, "Daydream a Little," features the world-renowned Trio da Paz. Sara performs with Andrew Adair, piano, and Paul Langosch, bass.

Saturday, August 18

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. Elin appears with Benjie Porecki, piano, and Zack Pride, bass.

Steve Washington
Saturday, August 25

Steve Washington
Steve Washington's latest CD, "Right To Love," is winning over critics and drawing new fans both at home and overseas. Ron Forman of Cabaret Scenes sums it up best: "It was indeed a pleasure to hear the romantic and dramatic voice of Steve Washington. He is a jazz singer in the great tradition of Billy Eckstine, Johnny Hartman and Joe Williams." Steve performs with Harry Appelman, piano, and Eric Harper, bass.
