The Alex Craft Cocktail Cellar & Speakeasy at The Graham Georgetown is OPEN

We are excited to welcome you back to Georgetown’s most unique speakeasy, The Alex!

Business Hours:

The Alex is a tribute to prohibition. This Cozy speakeasy takes you back to the 1920s with a dash of modern swank. Enjoy a carefully crafted cocktail and a bite from our Chef selected shareables, or one of our weekly featured dishes.
