New Feature!



A great place for jazz lovers, Blues Alley presents top-name artists in an intimate setting that echoes the great clubs of the 1920s. (Past performers include Dizzy Gillespie and Wynton Marsalis.) Groove to the rhythms while enjoying Creole cuisine, steak or seafood and a well-mixed cocktail. There's a $12 food and beverage purchase minimum per person per show. Doors open at 6 p.m. for the first show and no earlier than 9:45 p.m. for the second. Tickets are available online, over the phone or at the box office. Seats are first come, first serve. Dress is business casual; the vibe is cool. METRO: Foggy Bottom-GWU.
