Funky location, serious jazz without an exorbitant price tag - we heard Salim Washington and a fine five-piece combo, including a talented, inspired pianist whose name I can't conjure. Most of the patrons seemed to be there mostly for the music, but the food is...More

I listened to a first set of jazz featuring Frank Lacy on trombone, Kevin on bass, and Andrew Drury on percussion, and it was a wonderful experience. The place is intimate and dark, the sound was a little loud, the food was good, and the...More

Quaint little stop to enjoy good food and great music. Saw Larry Brown and his group perform, OUTSTANDING!

Really cool place for jazz presentations. The sound was a bit too loud and Food a bit expensive, however it was really tasty. The place is not fancy, but it goes for the purpose of delivering great jazz.

Over one hour to receive our food for a party of four. The service was very poor in general. The food is marginal at best. Also, we were asked to be silent during the performance because voices affect the other customers. All I can say...More

Twins is a long-running jazz venue in the now gentrified -and totally- safe U St. neighborhood. Take a yellow or green line train to the U St. stop, and take the 13th St. exit from the station. You're just a block away at that point....More

Twins is a legendary Jazz Club but we must have went on an off night. It was a Wednesday but that's still not a good excuse. The BMG trio was decent but their female vocalist was horrible. And to think they charged us $10 a...More

I've gone to Twins Jazz a number of times, often with friends. They host a wide variety of jazz and jazz influenced performers – always of extremely good quality. There are typically two sets per evening. An "early" set which fits in well with dinner...More
