Look for the fine print when ordering tickets on line - there is a $12 food/drink minimum. So in addition to the ticket price, there's more to pay. In addition, the price structure is such that 2 drinks will put you over $12. Better to...More
My husband and I were both first time Alley-Goers. I decided to surprise him for his birthday with tickets to see Marcus Johnson and the Urban Jam Band. We arrived at 6 when the doors opened. We ordered the spinach appetizer, shrimp and grits, and...More
recommended by a local. It was different from Twin Jazz, but just as fun. Although I liked the raw talent at the Twin Jazz better, it was nice to have a bigger more refined atmosphere. I recommend you get tickets ahead of time here though....More

This was our second visit to Blues Alley. The seating is tight. The food is good. The service is great. The entertainment is outstanding. We attended the Kenny Garrett Quintet concert on April 14, 2018. Wow! The only problem was no room to dance. I...More
Went for light dinner and to experience a Jazz Club.
We were not disappointed
We were unsure what to expect but this is an authentic place in the heart of Georgetown and as a tourist in Washington well worth a visit.
It is pretty quirky...More
