Reservations are suggested, especially for weekends when we frequently sell-out. Reservations can be made on our website at www.jazzalley.com where you can select your exact table location. You can also call for assistance, 206-441-9729. We accept walk-ups night of show and of course, you are welcome to come to the club without a reservation.

6.) What is the difference between "Dinner" and "Non-Dinner" tables, and is dining required?
Dining is optional.
Our early (7:30PM) Sets
    Dinner - We hold tables closest to the stage and give preferential seating to guests who have chosen to have dinner with us.
    Non-Dinner - Non-Dinner tables are located near the bar and the outer perimeter of the room and the full menu is available, should you decide to dine with us.
(If you've made a dinner reservation and have decided not to have dinner at Jazz Alley after all, please let the host know before you are seated, otherwise we reserve the right to move you to a non-dinner table.)
Our late (9:30PM) Sets
    - There is no preferential "Dinner" seating for the 9:30PM shows.
(INSIDER TIP: The 9:30PM show is a good option if you want to be close, but do not wish to purchase dinner.) Back to top

7.) Is there a food or beverage minimum?
While there is no specific food minimum, guests seated in the dinner area are expected to purchase dinner entrees, one per person. There is no drink minimum. Back to top

We do not have an enforced dress code. Most of our patrons come in dressy casual attire. Formal attire (suit and tie for men, evening dress for women) is recommended on nights such as Valentine's or New Years Eve, but not required. Back to top

9.) How long are the shows?
Most of our shows run between 70 and 90 minutes. On some occasions shows may run shorter or longer than the average time. Back to top

10.) Are you an all ages venue?
Yes, we are all ages, all the time. The exception is that minors cannot be seated in the bar area of the room. For most shows, children under 12 are admitted for free. However, it is live music and some shows may be too loud for infants and toddlers, or may contain content / subject matter that isn't always appropriate for children. Back to top

11.) What are your hours?
We present live music at least 6 nights per week (Tuesday through Sunday) with occasional Monday night shows (see Calendar for more details). We're reachable by phone daily beginning at 10AM Monday through Friday and 11AM Saturday and Sunday. The phones close at 9:00PM on nights with one show at 7:30PM, 11:00PM on nights with a second set at 9:30PM, and 4:00PM on nights with no show. Back to top

12.) What time do the doors open?
Doors open 6:00PM Monday-Thursday for the 7:30PM shows, and 9:15PM for the 9:30PM shows.

14.) Is the restaurant separate from the club? (Can I eat dinner, but not see the show?)
No. Every seat in the restaurant also has a view of the stage. We offer the opportunity to watch the show without dining, but there is no option to dine without paying the show admission. Back to top

19.) Do you have a dance floor?
Jazz Alley is a seated supper club, not a dance hall, so there's no dance floor but we can't stop you from shaking in your seats! Back to top

20.) The show I want to see is listed as sold out! Will you be releasing any extra tickets, or do you have a wait list?
For sold-out shows, there is always a non-reservation line. If there are openings, we will begin letting this line into the room at 7:15PM for the early set, and 9:30PM for the late set. We do not offer "standing room." We are a sit-down supper club, and every person admitted has a seat. Back to top
