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.
Up one flight of stairs, the club is narrow and cozy. Sit near the stage and you may want ear protection. Sit at the bar in the back and you may hear the servers chattering with the bartender. Sit anywhere in between and you will be fine.
The tables are jammed together, so you may have to do a pirouette to get in/out if you need to go to the bathroom. But... it's a club so that only adds to the atmosphere in my opinion. There's a per-person minimum ($10) and you will pay a cover charge with the rest of your bill; it seems to vary depending on the act, or possibly which night of the week. Don't go in expecting lightning service or a glamorous setting and you'll be fine. I've only been twice, but the act was solid both times.
In short, it's a jazz club with an emphasis on the music, with passable atmosphere, drinks and food. Go for the show and have a great time.
