I went to The Carlyle Club for the music and was very pleased with everything that night: staff, service, food, sight line to the music, and decor, and the other diners. While it took a few minutes to get oriented to its location, once there the parking was easy. Prices were quite reasonable, even considering the cover for the entertainment,... More

Our 33-year-old son invited my bride and I to attend this "dinner club," which that evening featured Doc Scantlin and The Imperial Palms an 18-piece 1940's era band with a hot blonde singer and an "Andrew Sisters" quartet, who could really belt it out. They even performed a Carmen MIranda conga line song. The upscale, white tablecloth setting with high... More

I attended my nephew's wedding, held in Alexandria. The reception was at this place. I felt that the Rack of Lamb dinner was among the better meals I had been offered, and was certainly a large portion.

Decided to have a few days away for Thanksgiving and let someone else cook and wait on us. Made afternoon reservations for their Thanksgiving meal. The first course choice was a salad or the soup and boy am I glad I opted for the soup. It was so good, wanted to lick my bowl clean. The entrée was standard turkey... More

Our good friends got married at the Carlyle Club last month and it was the first time I had ever been in here. The atmosphere was just like you were in another era but the wedding was not themed to that but it still fit perfectly. I loved that the bar area was separate from the main dining/dancing floor. There... More

Great Music, Good Drinks, Food only so so. They have quite a range of entertainment. All seats are good re viewing & listening to the music. I would suggest sticking to the snacks as the meals we had were not that good. The salad looked like it was prepared the day before.

My lovely wife and I were in the Washington DC area this weekend and stopped by The Carlyle Club. It is an old school supper club located in Old Town Alexandria, VA. We both loved the decor, it’s a very old school big band jazz club kind of vibe. There was an Earth, Wind, and Fire tribute band playing that... More

The club apparently is a nightlife spot that has just started offering lunch. We were there the first week of lunchtime operations. The food was good and very fast. The atmosphere is very lively, fun, and nostalgic (think Cab Calloway). There were problems though. No one greeted us for almost 10 minutes after entering. The chicken salad came from the... More
