The Poetry Brothel

Poetry reading comes to life in the bordello

Yup, the Poetry Brothel is exactly what you think it is. In this world of vice and verse, poets play whores and the intimacy of the boudoir is swapped for that of a poem. Among the speakeasy’s most coveted courtesans? Paul Muldoon, the Pulitzer Prize winning poetry editor of The New Yorker. The saloon's also got live tunes, body-painting, fortune tellers, burlesque, and until 9pm, La Fée Absinthe Parisienne. It’s the magic that Montmartre was made of. General admission. Over 21s only. Evening wear encouraged. Please note that the venue has a strict "no fur" policy.
