A live swing band and great atmosphere made for a really fun night out! You can pay a cover charge and have a table in the back room with the band playing, or you can be sat in the bar area for free and still enjoy the tunes and great vibe! You know you have had a good night when... More

Food was fantastic. The bands are always top notch. However, Swing 46 needs to make some major changes regarding dancing! I have been here 3 times now and the dancers are treated like a tourist attraction. You walk in and once the doorman/woman finds out you are a dancer she/he gives you the stink eye because they know you will... More

The atmosphere and the groups are great. But the service and the management is an heartbreak history. Very unprofessional and bad behaviour. Many otherjazzbars in town. Do not loose your time and money here.

Swing 46 is one of the best options for a memorable dinner on REstaurant Row -W 46th St. They have a very nice and reasonable price fixed menu with a variety of options. There is live music to boot along with a Happy Hour. I stopped by before the theater and was able to enjoy some music along with dinner... More

We had a great time at the club. Saturday nights usually fill up with folks who are dining there as well. We did not and were relegated to the bar for a while. Mike worked to get us a table, though we were told to get that table we had to make a two drink minimum each. No problem. We... More

great band, dancing is a must. so much fun, everyone is in a holiday mood. Dinner was pretty good and not overpriced. Be sure to wear funky dance clothing. This is NY, so no sloppy jeans.

Great New York Jazz. Go on the nights Professor Cunningham and his Old School are appearing for a real treat. The food was nice and service was good.

We went on a Thursday evening, just for the dancing. We paid the $15 cover and to sit in the room with the stage and dance floor there is a 2 drink minimum plus tips. I got the drinks from the bar but i think we are supposed to get the drinks from the waiter. Anyway the band was great,... More

Our group of 12 visited Swing 46 during our recent NY trip. We went on a Thursday night and Christie and the staff took great care of us! We all enjoyed the dance lesson, which introduced us to swing dancing. It was even more cool to watch the older individuals move and glide across the floor! The live band that... More

We went there specifically for the dancing. We paid the cover and sat near the dance floor which meant a two drink minimum per person. 4 sodas (we don't drink alcohol) cost $20. The dance floor was way too small and crowded - and it was a Monday night. I cannot imagine what a Friday or Saturday would be like.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
