THE LEGACY

HISTORY     CELEBRATION     DREAM

Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole. The original innovators and master craftsmen of jazz all played right here, in Omaha. Through the roaring 20s up through the 50s and 60s at clubs like Dreamland Ballroom, Club Harlem, and Allen’s Showcase Lounge on North 24th Street, they played – often alongside homegrown stars like Preston Love and Anna Mae Winburn.

The name “The Jewell” pays homage to local music impresario, Jimmy Jewell, and the Jewell building at 2221 N 24th St. named after him. The Jewell at the Capitol District is the newest hotspot, built on a reverence for our shared history and a deep connection to the here and now, with a soundtrack that’s the pulse of the moment.
