The Poetry Brothel Tickets

The Poetry Brothel

If your idea of a poetry reading involves a tweed-clad author, a podium and possibly a nap, then prepare to have your expectations exceeded by The Poetry Brothel, dubbed “New York’s sexiest literary event” by Time Out New York. Inspired by the fin-de-siècle bordellos of Paris and New Orleans, this immersive experience invites you inside a lush, speakeasy-style environment to meet your host, or “Madame,” who’ll introduce you to a rotating cast of poets-in-character, both male and female, emerging and established, and local and international, each with a unique story to tell. They’ll engage you with public readings, or if you prefer, private ones (for an additional fee). As with any underground establishment worth its salt, The Poetry Brothel also offers a full bar and themed cabaret entertainment with an ever-changing lineup of live music, burlesque dancers, painters, fortune-tellers and more.

What's not to like about a mash up of poetry, burlesque and bordello-like surroundings in Hollywood? The poets were fine but even better if you purchased a one on one poetic "lap dance". The bar setting was suitably fin de siecle and the musical...continued

Enjoyed everything about this event--the MC was great, the band (Accidental Rhino) played fun old time-y music with upright bass/fiddle/ukelele, the poets' material was all good imo, and the two boylesque performers were TERRIFIC.
