Chateau Moderne was a Manhattan night club which was popular in the 1930s. It was located in a no longer extant building at 42 East 50th Street, between 5th and Madison Avenues. The establishment entered a not guilty plea to income tax evasion in Manhattan United States Federal Court on July 19, 1939.[1]

In 1935 Chateau Moderne was renovated with the bar being moved forward to provide room for a sensational stage show. It reopened on September 14, 1935.[2] Singer Nora Lee King, a Decca Records recording artist, entertained at the night club in November 1941.[3] Matchbook
