Dirty Habit, in collaboration with Kimpton Hotel Monaco Washington, DC, welcomes Silver Spring-based jazz guitarist and composer Aaron Agre as the headlining musician for “Green Room at Hotel Monaco” on October 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29. The live music series features up-and-coming local musicians on Tuesday nights from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Guests can enjoy the show in the hotel’s emerald green living room-style lobby while enjoying bites from Dirty Habit’s Executive Chef Kyoo Eom and cocktails from Beverage Manager Drew Hairston.
