Minton’s Harlem

Restores the legendary music space to its historic grandeur.

While Minton’s is most famous for the seminal role it played in the Bebop revolution of the 1940s, the club had a vital existence through the early 1960s as a magnet for musicians who wanted to jam and continued to operate until 1974, when a fire led to the abandonment of the Cecil Hotel where Minton’s was housed. Nonetheless, in recognition of its significance in American history and culture, Minton’s Playhouse has been listed on both the National and the New York State Register of Historic Places.
