Marvin is a small neighborhood live music bistro and bar and is a mainstay of DC’s eclectic bar and club scene. We are proud to have live music featuring local artists every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Doors open at 6 pm.

DC-based vocalist and songwriter Cecily is known for her agile soprano and honest lyrics. Her sound, as soothing as it is rich, is musically mature, and rooted in a deep appreciation for mid-century soul and jazz, 90’s R&B, and re-imagined folk music. Yet her fresh faced lyrics boldly portray the heart young Cecily has fought for, and the wisdom of love earned and freedom gained over a life of being misunderstood and told she was “before her time” or “mature beyond her years.”
