The Bohemian National Hall is a remaining testament to the 19th-century social halls where immigrant culture flourished in New York City. Built in 1896, the Renaissance Revival building has been a touchstone for Czech and Slovak culture for over a century. Today it shares space with the Czech Consulate, the Czech Center New York, and the Bohemian Benevolent & Literary Association. It was designed by architect William C. Frohne, who also designed the clubhouse of the German American Shooting Society in the East Village.

For OHNY 2021, the Bohemian National Hall will be open from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday, with tours given every 15 minutes on a walk-up, first-come-first-served basis.
