This unassuming club recently upgraded to a larger spot—a former church on H Street—after migrating to the corridor from 14th Street a few years back. The principal attraction here is jazz and blues; the place is named after the US House of Representatives’ resolution recognizing jazz as a national treasure. You won’t find big names here, unless they stop in to jam after local concert-hall gigs, but you will find huge talent. The cover charge is usually only a few dollars, and along with Southern food like greens and beans you can bring your own wine for a $3 corkage fee—a popular move. Hit it on a good night, and you’ve got the best dinner-and-a-show value in town.
