The venue opened on the 24th of October 1942 as the Feldman Swing Club and kept this name until 1964 when it was taken over by the father of it's current owner, who changed the name to the 100 Club.

The club held it's first Northern Soul All-Nighter in the 1980s and has continued to run them ever since.
Nowadays, the venue is still running and remains largely unchanged since the 1970s. Due to it's rich history, big-name artists and bands often use it for 'secret' or unadvertised shows, as well as warm-up shows in preparation for tours. Artists that have done this include Metallica, Queens of the Stone Age and The Rolling Stones.
