BFL Press Release
Black Fox Lounge promotes the renaissance of Jazz in the nation’s capital by providing intimate performance spaces
for some of the most talented artists in the region. Along exposed brick, enjoy expert Continental cuisine,
boutique wines from around the world, and classic and signature cocktails in a quietly sexy quintessential Jazz
venue, a pared-down contemporary dive with two levels.
The proprietors, veterans in the hospitality industry for more than 30 years, conceived a
contemporary lounge that caters to a refined customer living in or traveling to DC for commerce, politics
We feature Continental cuisine, classic and original cocktails, boutique wines from around the world, and
performances by some of the most talented, award-winning artists and critically-acclaimed
acts in the region including jazz ensembles and other genres of music and vocals, spoken word, poetry and storytelling,
cabaret and theatrical productions.
We offer event spaces to host all manner of gatherings from
birthday celebrations to wedding receptions.
On weeknights, the main level hosts gigs in the sidewalk window. The legendary double bassist,
Butch Warren, of New York’s Blue Note fame, wanders in
for a jam twice a month. On weekends, in the subterranean level—anchored by a baby grand and a ragtag collection
of salvaged banquettes and tables—find a formidable roster of mostly young, emerging music makers with varied styles
from bebop to traditional swing including artist-in-residence, Aaron Myers,
and the house ensemble. Myers' sessions are a bi-weekly staple where often every inch of standing room is occupied.
Visit blackfoxlounge.com/events.html for the Jazz line-up as well as other genres of
music and vocals, Spoken Word and experimental theater. Most events are free admission.
