After years of construction and then some negotiations, the City of Cambridge has made available the new "Huron Ave" dance hall at the West Cambridge Youth Center to Swing City. This location, at the site of the former VFW, was the home of Swing City and other dances for many years. Starting in June, 2010, Swing City has been in this new building at the same address generally on the First Saturday of the month and the third Friday, as well as the 5th Saturday when there is one. Check our calendar for the exact schedule and band lineup.

We hope you'll come join us for a classy, nostalgic evening evening.

About the West Cambridge Youth Center/Huron Ave

Architect's Website »

This venue is located at the site of Swing City's home for over ten years, until it was demolished in about 2006 to make room for the beautiful new West Cambridge Youth Center. The Youth Center is a fantastically architected building housing a variety of facilities, and in particular a large sprung wood floor dance hall with stage, designed for the dance groups that formerly occupied the space.



Dress: "Smart casual" to elegant.

Tables & Groups: Call for group rates and to reserve tables. 617-513-9841
