Twins Jazz

Great International Foods & The Finest LIVE Jazz!

Twins Jazz is an intimate jazz club in Washington DC featuring top local and national jazz talents. We are a true homegrown jazz lounge. Owned and operated by real life Ethiopian twin sisters, Kelly and Maze Tesfaye, Twins Jazz is a Washington, DC treasure. Avant-garde artists, minor legends and the best of the local scene regularly take the stage at Twins Jazz, one flight of steps above U Street. Committed listeners dine on the Ethiopian cuisine served here. The space is intimate, creating a strong connection between audience and performers. The walls have paintings by local artists and photographs of jazz musicians, (many by Joseph Beasley, professional photographer and Twins soundman) and the bar in back is built within a cave-like molding, embedded with colored ceramic tiles. The back bar is also a good place to sit and listen to the music. Twins is also home to jam sessions every Sunday evening, when locals display their chops on standard material as supportive patrons nurse our drinks.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
