In its first twenty years, Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley has become the west coast’s premier jazz club. Every week the club brings the greatest names in jazz and blues to Seattle. Artists of international stature such as Oscar Peterson, Eartha Kitt, Taj Mahal, McCoy Tyner, Dr. John, Joe Sample, Marion McPartland, Lionel Hampton and Nancy Wilson appear weekly at Jazz Alley.
The nightclub first opened its doors in 1979 in Seattle’s University District. An intimate bistro setting, it attracted a diverse clientele. Equally popular among college students and die-hard jazz aficionados, one always found an exciting mixture of personalities and performers. The club quickly outgrew this location and six years later Jazz Alley relocated to the larger and more accessible club in Downtown Seattle, the perfect venue for introducing new fans to world-class jazz music while still offering the exuberant atmosphere of the old establishment.
In July of 1990, the club completed an extensive renovation with the expansion of the existing stage, the installation of a state-of-the-art sound and light system and the addition of a full mezzanine overlooking the stage.
Well, we are at it again! The new room will include a state of the art sound system, expanded stage, audio and video recording studio and the addition of over 100 seats, all without losing the original bistro ambience that makes Jazz Alley the intimate experience it is.
