Bohemian Caverns

This is a detail from the bas relief on the doors at Bohemian Caverns.  Bohemian Caverns was built in 1926, at 11th and U St.  It has been a jazz nightclub since then, with many famous jazz artists having played there – Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and many more.
