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:

Paige Wroble
Saturday, May 5

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, May 12

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, including a recent appearance at Jazz at Lincoln Center. 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."

Sharon Clark
Saturday, May 19

Sharón Clark
Join us as we welcome back Sharón Clark from her 4-month residency at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok! Sharón has become DC's jazz ambassador to the world, touring extensively and gaining fans wherever she goes. Don't miss this chance to see Sharón in her hometown. The Wall Street Journal raves: "new and amazing . . . an absolute triumph," and the NY Times agrees: "You can't underestimate the transformation of what seems like an ordinary song when an interpreter like Sharón Clark tears it apart and peers inside."

Lena Seikaly
Saturday, May 26

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."
