Philadelphia Trenton

Jump, jive, and wail to the Zoot Suit riot that occurs nightly at the Five Spot. Since opening in 1996 this dance venue has remained as one of Philadelphia's most popular spots, featuring live swing music and Cubanismo rhythms. Thursday nights typically cover hot latin beats or jitterbugging. Weekend nights swing hard with free dance lessons every open night. Take a spirited step back into the era of big bands, high fashion, and partner dancing in an atmosphere of class and fun.


All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
