      The Bohemian Caverns restaurant and Jazz Nightclub is located at 11th and U Streets in NW Washington DC. It was founded in 1926 as a venue for variety shows and was frequented by such legends as Duke Ellington and Cab Calloway. By the 1950s the name of the club was changed to Crystal Caverns eventually settling on Bohemian Caverns. During the 1960s, The Bohemian Caverns was the premier jazz club and ushered in the era of jazz music for the city. The club was able to book jazz superstars such as Miles Davis, Shirley Horn, John Coltrane, and Charles Mingus.

      By the turn of the decade, however, the club went into a state of disarray and it was closed. Following revitalization efforts in NW Washington DC, the club was renovated and reopened to its former glory. Now the venue is once again DC's premier jazz nightclub, featuring several performances each week by national acts. The venue also features a full service restaurant/bar and is the perfect venue for jazz aficionados. Don't miss a date on the Bohemian Caverns concert calendar.
