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

Stopped in here for a 2-1 happy hour before our dinner next door. Jake the bartender makes amazing drinks and the entire staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. This will be a definite go to place again

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

We got there and paid the cover (I think it was around $15 each) to have drinks and listen to the band (we didn't eat). We were initially frustrated because while there were several empty tables in the main room where the band plays, the hostess assured us they had been reserved. However, we quickly realized you cannot see the... More

Ordered dinner at 9:15 and it didn't arrive until 10:30, during which time the Server checked on me ONCE. And then, as an added slap in the face, I was only comp'd a $3 bottle of sparkling water. Terrible customer service from the Manager. Server was apologetic, but at that point, it just wasn't enough. I have never been so... More

Located on Restaurant Row this club is grand. The audience is all ages; the musicians are professionals with singers to add to the charm of this venue. The cover charge is nominal, the menu and beverages are not overpriced. We had a very good Brooklyn beer that was served very cold in a chilled glass, nice. The dance floor is... More

I don't want to write a lengthy story so I will just hit the main points. My girlfriend and I are big fans of the 1920's - 1940's style and have just returned from a trip to the New York. Before our trip we decided to look up some themed places to go and enjoy some swing music and dancing.... More

John and all the team made me so welcome and the food and wine were very enjoyable and good value.The music was fantastic and the atmosphere was cosy and intimate. Highly recommended for those who want a great jazz supper club with good music... More
