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 esthetic, a Victorian fantasy come to life.  Cuddle in the Empire sofas with that special someone, sip craft cocktail concoctions and dine on regional favorites from small plates to three course dinners.

Starting in November, experience the area’s finest Jazz Crooners featured from 8:00pm – 11:00pm every Saturday night.
