Twins Jazz.1344 U Street. Top Floor. Tel: (202) 234-0072 Fax: (301) 445-4363. [contact: Kelly Tesfaye. This place is a true homegrown jazz lounge. Owned and operated by real life Ethiopian twin sisters, Kelly and Maze Tesfaye, Twins Jazz is a Washington, DC treasure. Avant-garde artists, minor legends and the best of the local scene regularly take the cramped stage at Twins Jazz, one rickety flight of steps above U Street. At a club with a two-drink minimum per set and the action mostly on stage, nobody's really looking for the waitstaff to ply them with food and drinks. Committed listeners dine on the Ethiopian cuisine served here, but the main focus is the music. The space is intimate, creating a strong connection between audience and performers. The walls have paintings by local artists and photographs of jazz musicians, (many by Joseph Beasley, professional photographer and Twins soundman) and the bar in back is built within a cave-like molding, embedded with colored ceramic tiles. The back bar is also a good place to sit and listen to the music, especially if you're there by yourself. Twins is also home to jam sessions every Sunday evening, when locals display their chops on standard material as supportive patrons nurse their drinks]
