Bohemian Caverns(Updated at 1:30 p.m.) Bohemian Caverns on the U Street corridor has racked up a few thousand dollars in fines for serving alcohol to minors last year, according to a D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control Board notice posted last week.

Mahogany LLC, which owns the jazz club and its Tap & Parlour bar, must pay a $4,350 fine by Feb. 10 to avoid having its liquor license suspended indefinitely, the panel ruled Wednesday. The business also cannot serve alcohol at Bohemian Caverns and Tap & Parlour from Jan. 5 to 12.

A representative of the jazz club and bar didn’t respond to requests for comment.

A Tap & Parour bartender sold two Blue Moon beers on Oct. 16, 2014, to two teenagers who were helping the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration during an underage drinking sting, according to a case report released today. The bar worker didn’t ask to see any identification from the minors to determine if they were legally able to drink alcohol.
