Chaye Alexander's journey began in radio broadcasting, where she honed her skills as a producer and on-air talent, earning acclaim for her engaging style and deep understanding of music. This foundation paved the way for the creation of Chayz Lounge Radio, her online station, which she launched in 2009 under the name Chayz Lounge. The station quickly gained a dedicated global following for its carefully curated playlists and artist features. However, Chaye had greater plans for her brand. Her vision extended to a physical space with Chayz Lounge, an intimate venue that offers the best live performance, fostering a vibrant community of music lovers. The backroom of Nonnah's restaurant provided the perfect setting and in June 2017, Chayz Lounge venue was brought to life.


Immediately after the grand opening of Chayz Lounge at Nonnah's, Chaye knew that she needed more space and two years later, she relocated Chayz Lounge to 607 Meeting Street in West Columbia, SC where it still resides.
