Swing 46

This review appeared in the May 2004 issue of All About Jazz: New York

To walk along 46th Street west of Eighth Avenue, or “Restaurant Row” as it is more commonly known, is to get a small taste (pun intended) of what it used to be like in the heyday of 52nd Street, that mecca of a jazz neighborhood where bop and swing percolated side by side in the '40s. Brownstone-housed restaurants sit side-by-side competing for your business, many offer small snippets of entertainment to further entice you through their portals.

In the midst of this gastronomical universe sits something of a throwback: a venue that offers live jazz with an ample dance floor - Swing 46.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
