Bogart's is a Nederlander Concerts assumed management of Bogart's.[2] SFX (now Live Nation) bought many of Nederlander's concert operations in 1999.[3]

Prior to its 1993 expansion, Bogarts hosted themed-party nights, such as a Casaclanca club theme when the venue opened. It hosted a wide variety of comedians, ranging from Billy Crystal to Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, national recording artists and bands that gained fame through their appearances at Bogart's, such as Pearl Jam and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

In its early years, Bogart's was the proving ground for many up-coming metal bands. The intimate setting offered an up-close experience, often allowing the crowd to flow onto the stage with performers such as Testament, Slayer, Death, Dark Angel, Overkill, W.A.S.P. and others. While metal bands appeared frequently, Bogart's offered performances of several music styles each week.

The venue remains under management of Live Nation and has two levels: a pit, and a balcony which is open for larger events.[4]
