Sweet's Ballroom is located on Broadway in the Uptown area. As the lettering style indicates, it was built in the 1920s. It hosted all the great Big Bands and singers of the 1930s and 40s, including Duke Ellington, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, and Billie Holiday. It was shuttered in 1980 but was eventually renovated and reopened in 1998. It has an 8,000 square foot dance floor and is used for many dance and exercise events. Thank goodness another historic venue was saved from the wrecking ball.
