The Cotton Club was a famous jazz music night club located in the Harlem
neighborhood of New York City which operated from 1923 to 1940, most
notably during America's Prohibition Era lasting from 1919 to 1933. The
club was a white-only establishment even though it featured many of the
greatest African American entertainers of the era including Fletcher
Henderson, Duke Ellington, Adelaide Hall, Count Basie, Bessie Smith, Cab
Calloway, The Nicholas Brothers, Lottie Gee, Ella Fitzgerald, Fats
Waller, Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday,
and Ethel Waters. During its heyday, the Cotton Club served as a hip
meeting spot for its popular "Celebrity Nights" on Sundays, which
featured celebrity guests such as Jimmy Durante, George Gershwin, Sophie
Tucker, Paul Robeson, Al Jolson, Mae West, Richard Rodgers, Irving
Berlin, Eddie Cantor, Fanny Brice, Langston Hughes, Judy Garland, Moss
Hart, and New York City Mayor Jimmy Walker, among others.
