Every Monday night (except for next Monday, July 4), a 17-piece jazz orchestra assembles at Bohemian Caverns on U Street.
Bohemian Caverns is exactly what it sounds like...a dark basement performance space designed to look like twisty underground caverns. It's a bizarre setting to be listening to jazz, sipping sangria martinis, and eating soul food, but it works.
The show costs $7 and it lasts from 8pm until 11pm, with a short break at around 9pm between sets. The music is very cool, spotted with brilliant and soulful solos on each instrument in turn.
And you know what, if you go to a few bars on U Street afterwards, nobody would blame you if you decided to splurge on a chili dog and some chili cheese fries at Ben's before heading home...
