Founded in 1965, this DC institution hosts some of the finest jazz and blues musicians in a historic supper-club setting. Settle in for a night of sensory satisfaction with a full dinner (regular menu only available at the 8 p.m. show), including your choice of entree, a side salad, and a soda of your choice. If you attend the 10 p.m. show, you can choose any entree from the late fare menu, with the side salad and soda. Stomachs will achieve satisfaction as ears imbibe the smooth sounds of pianist Monty Alexander, a legendary jazz musician whose career has spanned more than five decades. Blending the music of his native Jamaica with the sleek stylings of American jazz, Monty Alexander's distinctive piano playing soothes even the most savage of bestial blues.
Yelpers give Blues Alley an average of 4.5 stars:
- Blues Alley is a special place. It has a very true, intimate "jazz club" ambience, the best I've experienced including the top clubs in New York. I've been many times, and I can say that if you see the right artist and go with someone you enjoy, you will count it as one of the best musical experiences of your life. – Michael D.
