Bowery Poetry Club

308 Bowery New York, NY 10012 | Greenwich Village | 212-614-0505

Location Description:

Bob Holman, the man who helped popularize slam poetry in the city, founded the Bowery Poetry Club, so you can feel quite confident that the acts inside aren't just a bunch of wannabe beatniks. Spoken-word poets, self-conscious rappers, amplified rockers, and tawdry burlesque acts frequent the stage in the back, while arty regulars hang out in the club's macabre, red-chandelier-equipped cafe. It also has wi-fi.
