“Fun place, good music”
Review of Bohemian Caverns

Bohemian Caverns
Reviewed November 8, 2011

We went here as an entertainment during a business trip to Washington D.C. and had a great time. The service was good, the drinks fine and the music ( we saw a big band that plays there regularly) was excellent. The atmosphere down in the caverns was great also due to the visitors who really enjoyed the music.
I would definatly go again when in D.C.

Let me start by saying that I do not "Party in DC", that is, go clubbing. I have been to Bohemian Caverns at least 6 times. Each time I have been more than satisfied with both the service and the food! My first visit was a surprise Birthday Brunch that my friends planned for me on a summer Sunday. I loved the ambience, the Mimosas were potent and the 8 of us had a wonderful time.

My second visit was on a Wednesday night or Thursday (Open Mike Night). I had dinner first and then went down to the "Cave". The performers ranged in age from 22 to 62 and the talent and creativity expressed during this amateur program gave me hope for the public school system, and the knowledge that this next generation is quite aware of the problems that they face in the future, and are more than willing to face them with words of anger, inspiration, hope and humor.

On my 5th visit, (last year) I brought 2 friends with me - a caucasian scientist and a scientist from Spain - not to say that this was so special, but heretofore, I had only observed African Americans enjoying the Caverns. We had a great dinner and then these friends shored up my courage--to take the mike! After my performance I got 2 standing ovations and 3 phone numbers! my "sista and brotha from another mother" had a great time and did not feel out of place or anxious. This is saying a lot about after hours in DC!

I will be going to the Caverns next Friday night with out of town friends who like Jazz. i have yet to experience this aspect of the "Caverns" and am greatly looking forward to it.
