Alex Restaurant
Speakeasy Jazz nights at The Alex

Join us at The Alex Craft Cocktail Cellar, where we feature the region's top jazz artists every Sunday evening from 6pm-9pm. This series sells out nearly every week, so make your reservations today at Resy.


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:

Steve Washington
Sunday, May 5

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."

Sharon Clark
Sunday, May 12

Sharón Clark
2019 has already been a banner year for Sharón Clark. After sold out shows at Dizzy's Club/Jazz at Lincoln Center, she embarked on a European tour. Don't miss this chance to see DC's jazz ambassador to the world 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."

Paige Wroble
Sunday, May 19

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.

Lena Seikaly
Sunday, 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's Mike West calls her most recent CD "the work of a supremely confident master of her instrument."
