The Alex Craft Cocktail Cellar & Speakeasy at The Graham Georgetown

The Alex name is drawn from Alexander Graham Bell which, like the hotel, pays homage to the life and times of the scientist, inventor and innovator.

The Alex has a unique aesthetic, a flashback to Victorian life. Cuddle up with that special someone, sip craft cocktail concoctions and dine on regional favorites from small plates to three-course dinners.

Experience the Blue Dot Jazz Troupe, featured from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm every Wednesday and Sunday night.  In their words:

“Jazz is the music pulled down from the cosmos to express the ever-changing rhythms of our lives. It builds upon the past, reflects the present and swings into the future. Blue Dot Jazz Troupe embraces that evolution, bringing the jazz of life to audiences in a dynamic and exciting way. Rooted in the music of New Orleans, we blend in a mix of blues, funk, Afro-Cuban and pop, and create a distinctive mood and experience. We bring jazz to life by starting with the familiar and ending with audiences rising to their feet to move to a universal beat.”
