We find swing/lindy dance venues all over the world and frequent Swing 46, The Cotton Club etc because we live in the NYC area. Initally reluctant about Platforms because it suggests 1970s disco music and that's not our interest, it seems they offer a good variety of music...more styles on different nights of the week. When I first walked in the stripper pole on the upper level seemed a little creepy, but after that the place is just fun. The night we were there they had Frankie Manning in HellsA Poppin playing on the tv screens along with many other great moments in Lindy. If you don't know Lindy, check out Frankie on youtube -- he invented Lindy in Harlem's Savoy nightclub in the 1930s. Even if you only like hiphop, if you can't appreciate this, you're just wrong. Anyway, the decor at Platforms is fun, the crowd is friendly and there is tons of room to dance, even if the black and white dance floor is full. Two talented warm and enthusiastic dance teachers were available throughout the night -- dancers of all levels were very welcome on the dance floor -- and seriously, some people had never tried swing dancing before and had a blast. As always with a lindy crowd, tons of young people (because it is so athletic) mix with people from that generation who know their way around a dance floor -- walk right in and feel at home. view less
I love this Club in Boca!!!! I go almost every Thursday nite and some Saturdays. The music is amazing, the drink prices are reasonable and the clientele is upscale. Check it out you won't regret it.
Great place! Lots of fun but not enough 80's music! Mostly 70's. Didn't know a lot of the songs but everyone else did. Older crowd! Supposed to be 70,80, and 90's. Didn't hear one 90's song.
