One of the most famous music halls in the USA, Harlem’s Apollo Theater is the cathedral of traditional African American music. Its name evokes an era of great jazz musicians; Ella Fitzgerald made her singing debut here at age 17, and the theater has carried this tradition to the present day. Long known for it’s support of new artists, the Apollo emphasizes new talent with its weekly Amateur Night. The Apollo music cafe located upstairs, is a new lounge-style environment that features music genres from the Apollos heritage, as well as contemporary genres.

In an oblong white stucco building, the Cotton Club carries on a legacy dating back to 1923, a time when upscale cliental came uptown to hob-nob with their peers and enjoy fine entertainment from across the country. Tourists from around the country head uptown today to mingle with the regulars who sing with The Cotton Club All Stars—a thirteen piece swing band and a seven-piece blues and jazz band—and dance the night away.
