Howard Theatre
© Worn Creative,

A place with a starred history (it was dubbed "the largest colored theater in the world" when it opened in 1910), the Howard hosted most of the jazz greats in its heyday, among them Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday, Louis Armstrong and Cab Calloway. Shuttered since the 1980s, it has now been creatively restored and features performances from R&B, gospel and soul bands and singers, among them Alexander O’Neill, Brian McKnight and Sheila E. There are regular Sunday gospel brunches too.
