a famous US jazz club in Harlem, New York City. Its best years were in the late 1920s when 'Duke'Ellington and his band played there. Most of the performers at the club were black but only white people were allowed in the audience. The club provided the idea for the film The Cotton Club (1984), directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
