The trope originated as an insulting depiction in the 1890s, and among Socialists rather than the nationalists, with Populists in the United States and Labourites in Britain using it to mock their more bourgeois liberal/socialist counterparts. Nationalists and anti-socialist conservatives began to co-opt it in the mid-20th century, although one could argue that it is the "bohemian" rather than the "bourgeois" part of the equation that truly offends them.

The defining trait of the Bourgeois Bohemian (Bobo for short) is that while he belongs to the upper or upper-middle class in socioeconomic terms, his values are often inherited from the countercultural movements of the 1960s. Expect very open attitudes towards issues such as religion, sexuality, and recreational drugs, as well as support for liberal or progressive political causes. A fondness for the USA's media SOEs Creator/{{NPR}} (National Public Radio) network and Creator/{{PBS}} (Public Broadcast System) is also common, as is a tendency to shop at places like the USA's Whole Foods ('organic' food retail chain, owned by an unpologetically cynical arch-capitalist). [[StrawmanPolitical Unsympathetic examples]] of the trope will often be portrayed as being hypocritical about their wealth, criticizing other wealthy elites while sharing much of their lifestyle. Pejorative terms like "limousine liberal" (American), "champagne socialist" (British), "Chardonnay socialist" (Australian), "caviar leftist" (French), "drawing-room socialist" (traditional German), or "Tuscany Fraction" (modern German) are often found applied to this type. Sympathetic portrayals will usually suggest that liberal values and financial success aren't contradictory, and may in fact invoke such ideals as the "Gospel of wealth" or ''noblesse oblige'' as a justification for it.

The Bourgeois Bohemian is often what the {{Hipster}} or GranolaGirl turns into when he/she hits middle age, or what the NewAgeRetroHippie might have become had he not dropped out. Is not necessarily associated with UsefulNotes/Capitalism or UsefulNotes/Socialism, despite the 'bourgeois' name.

* Pretty much the same for the gang in ''Series/{{Friends}}'' (understandably since it's set in 1990s-2000s NY), although veering more on the "hipster" territory.

* The Fourth Doctor in ''Series/DoctorWho'' is an extremely weird variation of this archetype. His appearance and personality is modelled on Victorian bohemians like Creator/HenriDeToulouseLautrec and Creator/OscarWilde, but he has as much material wealth as he needs, is technically a ''Lord'' and possesses lots of stereotypically upper-class mannerisms and interests. He makes a [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority great show of being anti-authoritarian]] and his hatred of it is genuine, but spends much of his run as the puppet of the Time Lords, fulfilling their orders.

-->I go to civil rights rallies\\
And I put down the old D.A.R.\\
I love [[Creator/HarryBelafonte Harry]] and [[Creator/SidneyPoitier Sidney]] and [[Creator/SammyDavisJr Sammy]]\\
I hope every colored boy becomes a star\\
But don't talk about revolution\\
That's going a little bit too far\\
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal
