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
