This place is all about the music. Named after a congressional resolution proclaiming jazz a "rare and valuable national treasure," HR-57 isn't just a club, it's a nonprofit cultural center. It spotlights musicians based in the D.C. area, many of whom have national followings. Enjoy the Caribbean menu anytime, or enjoy it with your own wine ($7 corking fee per person) during the weeknight jam sessions by local artists. Big names sometimes join in on the weekends. The warm
and relaxed atmosphere make this place well worth a visit.
