Cafe Bohemia

Café Bohemia was initially opened in 1955 by Jimmy Garofolo. He had owned and operated it as a restaurant, bar, and stage at various times since 1949. In 1955, saxophonist Charlie Parker offered to play in the club to get his drinks for free, which unofficially began the room's short life as a jazz club.

Parker died before the beginning of his engagement at the Bohemia, but the hype generated around his name was enough to garner further support for the new club.

Michael Zieleniewski has reopened this club by keeping the integrity of the original masterpiece. With a new start, the club is bringing great music for jazz lovers

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
