Foursquare Tips

  • Go on Monday night! It's really great. 3- 50 sessions, dancing, singing, drinking!
  • Wish I could have heard Lena Horne here just once.
  • The original Cotton Club, at 644 Lenox Ave. and 142nd St., opened in 1927.
  • where Duke Ellington and Lena Horne spent hours wowing crowds
  • COTTON CLUB PARADE, every Monday night, doors open at 8 pm for dinner (Ala carte menu). A 13 piece swing band at 8:30 pm until 12am.
  • This place is not the original, and judging by the drab interior, doesn't attempt to be. Fun for a musical alternative, but there are many better options. Go because it's near the river.
