JoJo Restaurant and Bar is easy to spot–just look for the beautiful banner out front. Inside, small lit candles adorn the tables. Crowds of people who have braved the steamy Washington D.C. air all day settle in for a relaxing evening. As night descends upon the U Street Corridor, locals and visitors alike come to JoJo’s, anticipating live jazz music as the first sweet strains reach the sidewalk and street beyond.

JoJo offers an elegant venue to take in the music. It feels like an upscale restaurant, without the fancy dress code. There are two levels at JoJo’s, both have adequate seating–the tables, chairs and barstools are beautifully carved mahogany–and both feature a full bar. The downstairs is more intimate; this is where the true ambience of JoJo is most realized, too. Soulful, global music plays inside before the live entertainment begins. Never too loud, but always there to keep the energy flowing, it is a modern sound, driven and impulsive.

Photographs by Gideon Kifle showcase jazz performance on the exposed brick walls throughout the restaurant, and a notable print of local great Keter Betts is included in the impressive group of shots. Chef and owner Ben Kibour provides food that is simple but delicious; all dishes are reasonably priced. Most of all, whether you come to JoJo to eat or drink or just to hang out for the night, you will find a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Those who enjoy summer in the city, come for the great food, cold drinks and live music–i
