The Poetry Brothel: House Of Illusions

Poetry readings come 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? National Book Award Winner Mark Doty and Huffington Post blogger Diana Raab. The saloon's also got live tunes courtesy of The Hot Club of Flatbush, fortune tellers, burlesque, and until 9pm, complimentary St. George gin, absinthe, and whiskey. 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.
