Harlem: Cotton Club, New York City 1930s Art Print at Art.com
The Cotton Club. the ever-beating heart of the Harlem Renaissance. I love to picture writers and artists walking in on a rainy day and sitting around drinks enjoying the jazz in a room full of smoke.
This is a picture of the Cotton Club. The Cotton Club was a jazz nightclub located in Harleb, New York City. It first opened in 1923. I think this picture is important because it was a nightclub that was very famous in the 1920s. The Cotton Club, like other similar nightclubs, influenced our culture because it was an illegal drinking spot; due to prohibition. The Jazz Age was important because it was part of the cultural changes to come. The Jazz Age had a long lasting impact on pop culture.
