Fodor's Review

The reigning arbiter of poetry slams, the Nuyorican Poets Cafe hosts open-mic events and the influential granddaddy (b. 1989) of the spoken-word scene, the Friday Night Poetry Slam. Other performances, including hip-hop open mics, jazz acts, and theatrical performances, round out the schedule. Though there are a small number of reserved tickets for popular shows like the Friday Night Poetry Slam and the Monday night open mics, it's still a good idea to line up early; the small venue gets packed quickly.
