Reviews for Nuyorican Poets Cafe

This is perhaps the most renowned home of slam poetry out there. Its legendary open mics serve as an opportunity for all comers to test their skills at this uniquely American form of performance poetry.

This place is such a vibe. I absolutely loved my time spent here listening to the talented artists. I also loved that there was a secluded spot, a balcony, for people to go up and view the performer/artist.

Great space to see and share poetry and drinks. The venue is a staple for the nuyorrican poets and slam poetry in general. I’m glad it continues to open its doors. I feel the environment is very supportive then somewhat competitive.
