The 100 Club is a music venue in London situated at 100 Oxford Street, W1, originally called The Feldman Swing Club. The 100 Club attained legendary status in modern British music, having played host to live music since 24 October 1942. In 2009 Feldman's Swing Club was named by the Brecon Jazz Festival as one of 12 venues which had made the most important contributions to jazz music in the United Kingdom, for its contributions in the 1942-1954 period. In September 2010, it was announced that the 100 Club would close at the end of 2010 owing to continuing losses. A campaign was launched to keep the venue open, supported by musicians including Paul McCartney, and in February 2011 a partnership with Nike subsidiary Converse was arranged, enabling the 100 Club to remain open.
