The Subway Soul Club is a 1960s, soul dance party spinning Northern Soul, Motown and Go-Go Grooves on vinyl 45s with our mission to find great dance spaces with wooden floors. We try to host special events between one and 3 times a year.

Keeping New York Dancing Since 2001
Lady Dawn and
The Subway Soul Club was formed in 2001 by two Brits Dawn Carrington, Jeff Valle and and a San Fransiscian soul DJ Dr Scott ( Bullit ) who had all recently moved to New York City. New York's draconian licensing laws meant there were very few opportunities to dance to the music they loved so The Subway Soul Club was born in the back room of a Lower East Side bar. Within a year L.A. DJ Phast Phreddie The Boogaloo Omnibus had taken over over from the boys and has been at the helm with hostess Lady Dawn ever since!
Growing fast, The Subway Soul Club quickly became the center of a small but growing 60's scene drawing mods, scooterists, Northern Soul record collectors and hipsters of all ages. It has had its home in varaious locations from Lower East Side, Chinatown and East Village venues ( including a six year residency at Rififi ) to a secret Williamsburg loft to the 600 capacity Bell House and the prestigious home of New York Blues and soul-B.B.Kings in Times Square.
After 10 years as a monthly club The Subway Soul Club now favors bigger parties two or three times a year and we're happy to welcome over and over again our many friends who have followed us through the years. Theres no dress policy but it you want to dress in your mod finery you'll be in good company!
Whilst we have on occasions hosted live bands ( including La La Brookes ) our focus is on a night of great dancing to the best 60's soul music spun by top vinyl DJs from the USA and beyond and our policy is to find spacious, wooden dance floors wherever we can. You will never find a concrete floor at a Subway Soul event!
