In its first twenty years, Dimitriou's Jazz Alley has become the West Coast's premiere jazz club. Every week the club brings the greatest names in jazz to Seattle's audiences.
Artists of international stature such as Oscar Peterson, Nancy Wilson, Taj Mahal, Eartha Kitt, Diane Schuur, McCoy Tyner, Ray Brown and Dr. John 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. Six years later Jazz Alley relocated to the larger and more accessible club at 6th and Lenora; the perfect venue for introducing new fans to world class jazz music while still offering the exuberant atmosphere of the old establishment.
