Twins Jazz is an intimate jazz club in Washington DC featuring top local and national jazz talents. We are a true homegrown jazz lounge. Owned and operated by real life Ethiopian twin sisters, Kelly and Maze Tesfaye, Twins Jazz is a Washington, DC treasure. Avant-garde artists, minor legends and the best of the local scene regularly take the stage at Twins Jazz, one flight of steps above U Street. Committed listeners dine on the Ethiopian cuisine served here. The space is intimate, creating a strong connection between audience and performers. The walls have paintings by local artists and photographs of jazz musicians, (many by Joseph Beasley, professional photographer and Twins soundman) and the bar in back is built within a cave-like molding, embedded with colored ceramic tiles. The back bar is also a good place to sit and listen to the music. Twins is also home to jam sessions every Sunday evening, when locals display their chops on standard material as supportive patrons nurse our drinks.
