Nighthawks Vintage Dance Club began when the doors of Hornsey Town Hall opened to the public after having been closed for many years. A beautiful example of Modernist architecture retaining all the features of its original Art Deco interior, it is the perfect setting for a night of dancing to the sounds of the 1930s.

Our vision is a friendly, inclusive dance club with an emphasis on the vintage atmosphere and authentic swing, jazz and blues music played on original 78rpm records. We run a monthly event in the smaller Supper Room, and a biannual event in the main ballroom upstairs.

Next event: Saturday 11th February

Doors open at 19:45
Beginners dance class at 20:00
This month: Peabody with Josh Gomez (US)!
At 21:00 we have selections of the finest vintage music on 78rpm records
Resident DJs Dynamaestro, Swing Maniac and Tim Hellzapoppin’
Curfew at 02:00
