Jazz Supper Club Washington DC

Founded in 1965, Blues Alley is the nation’s oldest continuing jazz supper club, having showcased internationally renowned concert hall artists such as Dizzy Gillespie, Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Grover Washington Jr., Ramsey Lewis, Charlie Byrd, Maynard Ferguson and Eva Cassidy in a small intimate setting.

Located in the heart of historic Georgetown in an 18th century red brick carriage house, Blues Alley offers its patrons a unique ambiance, reminiscent of the jazz clubs of the 1920′s and 30′s.

Open seven days a week, Blues Alley specializes in authentic Creole cuisine, steak and seafood dishes (Dinner served from 6:00 pm). Blues Alley has designed several discounted packages available to groups of twelve or more, and can accommodate up to one hundred and twenty five for dinner and show.

    My Dad, Wallace Agnew (Wally-died in 1995) was a part owner of Blue’s Alley
    in the 60′s. He told me that he had hired Roberta Flack to perform there
    when she was just getting started.
    Can you confirm that Roberta did indeed
    perform there occasionally in the 60′s?
    Thank you in advance for any information
    you may have on this.
