In DC's Penn Quarter since 1993, the original Jaleo location helped to transform the neighborhood into the heart of the city that it is today.
Jaleo is a Spanish word meaning revelry, fun, and bustle. Jaleo DC’s striking redesign blends this festive spirit with the unique personality and style of chef José Andrés. Led by the exciting vision of Andrés’ friend, Spanish designer and architect Juli Capella, Jaleo’s new look is “a relaxed environment of bold colors, with a hint of madness and irony, and a touch of Mediterranean surrealism,” explains Capella. Jaleo DC features sleek furnishings and artwork created in Spain by some of the country’s best contemporary designers.
