Not many bars in Georgetown are worth your time. Blues Alley is one of the few that is. True to its name, this is a jazz/blues club in a hidden alley in between dumpsters and a vacant garage. The inside looks like a spot where Jerry might do stand-up during an episode of Seinfeld, and it’s overall a cool, intimate place for a date. Just get some food beforehand - this place is more about the music and the drinks.

Ristorante Piccolo

Ristorante Piccolo is an Italian restaurant with a live violinist most nights. It’s over-the-top, but a good Georgetown experience to have once.
