Dear Jazz Alley Patrons,

We, at Jazz Alley, hope that all of our Alley Cats are safe, healthy and getting ready to get back into the swing of things as soon as possible; there is no better way to raise your sprits than with Live Music.

As we continue to battle this virus with our community, we remain optimistic but mindful of how this shared experience has impacted our sensibilities. As such, we've been taking steps to safeguard our customers, staff, and our artists, and reaffirm our commitment to your future Jazz Alley experiences.

When we re-open, we want to be sure that the space is as hygienic as possible. With that in mind, we've upgraded the club to include:
  • Revised seating configuration to provide more space between tables
  • Installed plastic privacy shields throughout the club
  • Installed "hands free" faucets and soap dispensers in our restrooms
  • Installed "hands free" sanitation stations in the public and staff work areas
Please know that Jazz Alley is coming back stronger than ever. We have been in Seattle for 40 years and plan to be here another 40!

We thank you for your patience as we tirelessly rearranged our music calendar, not only for our customers, but for the artists as well.

Please click the banner below, to view our current calendar. Even though the office is closed, reservations and gift certificates (that never expire) are available on our web site We can be reached at with any questions.

It helps so much to know that you Alley Cats are out there waiting, just as we are. Stay sane and healthy. We will put this behind us and return to presenting world class, uplifting music (soul food) to our community once again.

"Two things remain consistent at all her shows though: her throaty but cushiony voice, which has a sort of hard-mattress comfort to it that’s part Bonnie Raitt, part Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse; and her band’s rollicking New Orleans flavor, driven home by dueling horn players and a bayou-thick standup bass." -Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune
