Although the old-time DC nightclub scene had faded away by the Nixon era, most places where Billie Holiday performed can be visited today. The Lincoln Theatre was renovated with public funds in the 1990s and still hosts jazz events today. Unfortunately the Howard Theatre, renovated in the 1980s, failed to build an audience and today stands shuttered at the intersection of 7th Street, T Street, and Florida Avenue NW. In 2007, DC Government announced plans for a private developer to rehabilitate the Howard as a supper club and performance space and restore its facade to its original 1910 appearance. This would differ substantially from the current art deco-accented stucco facade, a just pre-World War II facelift.
After the 1968 riot drove away a significant portion of its customer base, Bohemian Caverns closed for almost 30 years. Today, with the revival of U Street NW, it is again a functioning nightclub presenting live music. Billie Holiday's portrait is displayed in the window enclosure just to the left of the traffic light. The Brown Derby is a restaurant, while the Cafe Trinidad is a theatrical performance space. Only the Patio Lounge, which closed in 1978, has been demolished.
