A message to our patrons:

First off, we want to thank each and every one of you, our amazing customers, for your kindness, understanding, support, encouragement and patience. We are humbled.

While we continue waiting to be allowed to re-open, make note - we are not sitting idle. We are continually re-shuffling our calendar of upcoming artists, all of whom are eager to resume their livelihoods.

We have also gone to great lengths to prepare the club for reopening, from new State of the Art Global Plasma Solution Air Ionizers (that clean our air constantly) for each of our nine HVAC units, to giant Air Handlers that import six tons of outside air continuously. Click here to see the complete list. We are ready to go!

We continue to keep the heart beat of Jazz Alley alive five days a week as our kitchen crew continues to feed those in need within our community. We have been working in partnership with Byrd Barr Place, Northwest Food Alliance, Sacred Hearts, Seattle Council of Churches and many others… with over 30,000 meals prepared and delivered to date.

We eagerly wait to reopen and resume presenting live music at Jazz Alley. Even though it seems like we have been forced to close (as well as the rest of the musical world) for a long time, it's just a blip compared to the 40 years Jazz Alley has been in this city. We will be back soon for another 40.

Thank you for your continuing support through it all.
