Blues Alley Latest Among D.C. Jazz Clubs to Face Closure

Blues Alley, one of D.C.’s longest-running jazz clubs, may be shuttering in Georgetown after 56 years amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has also caused several other music scene businesses to call it quits.

The building’s owner, Snyder Properties, said the building was put up for sale after unsuccessful lease negotiations with club owner Harry Schnipper, WRC-TV (Channel 4) reported.

The club closed in March as the pandemic took hold in the region and subsequent restrictions limited capacity levels for certain venues.

The Wisconsin Avenue landmark has hosted equally iconic performers over the years, including Charlie Byrd, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis and Eva Cassidy.
