    For the premier acts get there 30 minutes before showtime. You may wait but you get your choice of seat.

    Our service was very, very slow, but the show was amazing! For the price ($35 ticket, $3.50 service fee, $12 table minimum and $10 to park nearby) it was well worth it!

    great atmosphere, music was all right, food and wine were not impressive.

    Don't go showing up early or anything. If you're checking out the late set, your ass gets to sit outside in the cold until just before 10.

  • Johnika D.

    Cozy venue. Came for Syleena Johnson. Stay away from the food or use your $12 food min wisely. I sent the Spinach Dip back--soupy. The Gumbo was edible. I'll grab something to eat on my way home.

    Few Washington nightlife places have enjoyed the notoriety of Georgetown’s Blues Alley. Since it opened in 1965, Blues Alley has touted itself as “DC’s Best Jazz Supper Club.” -- Green Guide Editor

    Had the salmon last week, amazing. Had some crab cake with cheese sent it back, didn't have any crab sent it back. Do not order, foul.

    Shows normally are at 8 and 10 PM. The doors open an hour before for dinner at the 8PM show. Come early for the 10 PM show because a queuing line begins before the late show. Read more
