Imagine a first class New York City music club, complete with a grand piano, top drawer jazz pianist, and an alluring chanteuse singing great tunes by Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Duke Ellington and Irving Berlin, and you know what to expect on a Saturday night at the Henley Park Blue Bar Lounge in DC. The music begins at 7:30 pm every Saturday with a first class performance by vocalist Nancy Scimone and her jazz pianists. http://www.nancyscimone.com
The Henley's bar menu offers gourmet shareable plates (crispy shrimp, calamari) desserts (pear bread pudding, tira-mi-su,) classic cocktails and international wines and beers. There's NO COVER CHARGE and no minimum to listen to the music. A rare find in DC. Cozy tapestry chairs, intimate ambiance and old world charm.
The Henley Park is at 926 Massachusetts Ave. NW (Corner of 10th and Mass.) On street or valet parking; Mt. Vernon Square and Gallery Place Metros.
