About Us

The Half Note Restaurant & Lounge was established with one goal in mind; combining sincere, outstanding customer service with great food. At the Half Note Lounge, each guest will encounter this while listening to the great sound of jazz and old-school R&B. Come and enjoy a fun-filled evening with family or friends, or a romantic evening with that special someone or just sip on a classy cocktail while finalizing that all important business deal. Whatever the occasion, sit back and enjoy performances by some of the best jazz artists, along with the best jazz and old-school R&B that the Washington Metropolitan Area has to offer. 

Step inside and experience the one, the only, the Half Note Lounge!

Half Note Lounge is the realization of a dream...

For the past 10 years, we have been providing a place where the community can come and enjoy an atmosphere that is fun and professional, with like-minded people, where networking constantly occurs. A place where you can enjoy a fabulous meal, a cocktail, live jazz and classic R&B music, in a safe environment, with free parking. Our #1 priority is to provide the customer service experience you expect; one that is inviting and enjoyable, not contentious or confrontational. One that gives you the experience you deserve when patronizing an establishment; one that makes you want to come again and again. We continually aim to give you an amazing experience at the Half Note Lounge every time you walk through the door.
