Live Dinner Set with Nadia Washington

Beat Hôtel’s live dinner jazz set features world-class musical artists performing exciting & intimate music as a perfect compliment to food & libations.


Often compared to the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, Nadia Washington’s vocal style incorporates a fusion of different musical avenues. Her smooth, velvet-cloaked vocals draw in an audience, leaving many feeling quite misty.

Jamie Stewardson


Stewardson is an exceptional jazz guitarist and a courageous leader. As a soloist he is full of boundless invention, turning the melody (and he knows what melody is) around on a dime and coaxing the music into places it didn’t know it wanted to go. As an accompanist he’s supportive and strong.

People Vs. Larsen


The blues is a relevant music for the time we live in and the People Vs. Larsen play it with an energy that is unmatched. Selling out clubs all over New York City, they have fostered a young jazz and blues following unlike any other seen by this generation.  With a fun and carefree approach, they have turned jazz and blues into something to be celebrated (evident when you realize their name is derived from a court case where Larsen was sued for distributing condoms with Sarah Palin’s likeness on the packaging).
