Best Poetry Reading (2008)

Sugar Shack

The soulful Sugar Shack sits right across the street from Striver's Row, where artists like W.C. Handy, Langston Hughes, and Stepin Fetchit lived, and just a hop from Sugar Hill, home to William Stanley Braithwaite and Aaron Douglas. Harlem's new intelligentsia go here Wednesday (and every other Thursday) nights to wax lyrical while getting their grub on with collard greens and candied yams. A live jazz band and intimate setting provide the perfect scene to get in touch with your creative side.
