This is an awesome underground place to watch jazz, and unique to other places in the neighborhood. It has that old time DC feeling. I'd recommend eating before arriving and just sipping on some wine or a cocktail during the show. The music was soulful...More

Really cool underground spot to catch some jazz. Ambiance and acoustics really great. You'll really enjoy if you go with modest expectations about food and service.

What a terrific venue. Perfect size, good layout, making for an intimate experience. Tip - sit on the side opposite the drums and as close to the band as possible for great views of the artists in action. I recommend viewing the artist on YouTube...More

I went to the Bohemian Caverns to see the Christian Scott Quintet on January 25th. That was our first time every visiting this venue. We were amused that it was literally made to look like a cavern. It's a very dark and intimate setting. You...More
