The building that houses the Bethesda Blues and Jazz Supper Club was constructed in 1938 as a palatial movie palace, and today this Art Deco jewelbox has reopened as one of the region’s preeminent live music venues. A multi-million dollar renovation project brought the space a full restaurant-quality kitchen, a beautiful 40-foot bar, and hundreds of table seats, not to mention the improvements to the stage, sound, and light systems. The result is a venue in the heart of Bethesda that simultaneously affords the charms of a 1930s supper club, as well as all the comforts that modern amenities allow.
Before heading over from The Whitney, check the website for a current calendar of performances and special events, which may include local jazz performers, Motown legends, stand-up comedians, touring country acts, or talented local music students. Even if you aren’t attending a show, the bar at Bethesda Blues offers a weekday happy hour with half-price drinks. That alone is enough to keep the dance floor full!
