All the way from South Africa, needed a place to unwind and this is exactly what we needed! Music is a universal language! That's what we got!

Went to hear jazz at Bohemian Caverns and it did not disappoint. It wasn't very crowded and we just had drinks. The music was top rate. Loved the choice of material and originals by very talented artists.

Went to Bohemian Caverns for their Wednesday Verses open mic! GREAT atmosphere. Only it was a little dark. Perhaps that's the vibe they were giving. The drinks were great and came out pretty quickly. Lighting made it difficult to know where the restrooms were.

I literally stumbled onto this places with no idea that out its such a legendary place. It was cold and raining and I just wanted to be inside. I asked the guy at the door of they had live music and it turned out the show was starting in about 2 minutes. Wow. The basement outs truly a cavern, looks like our wad carved out of some weird, jazz-infused rock about 70 years ago and our had just been soaking up the atmosphere ever since.

I saw the Aruàn Ortiz Trio and they were incredible. Didn't eat any food and the bar service was just ok ... but that is not why you are here.

This was one of those lucky circumstances that makes toy want to come back for more.

The Jazz performance was everything we could have wanted, but our food arrived at the end of the performance (and we were one of the first to arrive, 1/2 hour before the show). Service was just absolutely awful. Our server was apologetic, but while the kitchen was probably mostly responsible, she appeared to be serving more than half the crowd and was clearly over her head.

If possible, avoid the prix fixe dinner by eating upstairs before the show. That worked for us previously, and the options were more numerous.
