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

Great night and filled up really quickly. The room for dancing was in front of stage where band was playing. We listened to Ron sunshine and his orchestra brilliant. Seemed to be loads of regulars who danced together great to watch. We ate and had delicious meal salmon with beet risotto and steaks. We left late and was still going... More

Great live music, great band, go there on Tuesday evening they have free dancing lessons, plenty of couples that are absolutely amazing. You can just come there and have food, a glass of wine and enjoy the music. No need to be a dancer !

I have now gone twice to Swing 46 and love it. Great ambiance, great staff, great music. Both times, while on a date, I have run into friends from other walks of my life who it turns out love this place too. Great date venue if you love to dance. Fun loving and just plain fun. The food is fine... More

This is a real little gem that should be checked out. My wife & I recently stayed in Manahattan for a few days. We just happened to stumble across this place by accident. We had a quick listen to what music was coming out of the bar and based on it being some great jazz & crooner music we decided... More

A mix of ages and dress, but a terrific place to dance for all! It's hard to find a place to dance in NY. We paid the cover, but had dinner before we arrived (after being told the food wasn't great.) We are 47 and 55.

We searched high and lo for a jazz/swing club with atmosphere, quality music and dancing and certainly found it here. Singer in particular was typical US high quality- could fill a theatre in the UK. Particularly liked the 30 minute dance lesson before the band started, actually gave you enough steps to try a dance. Crowd were mixed ages from... More
