The best poets are masters of language, rhyme, and the ability to walk onstage in front of thousands of people and talk about some very sexy topics. Watch the best with this GrouponLive deal to see any show at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. For $25, you get tickets and drinks for two (up to a $54 total value). This package includes:

  • Two tickets (up to a $20 value each)
  • Two beverages, including soda, coffee, bottled water, wine, and beer (up to a $7 value each)

Culture vultures can feast on slam poetry, hip-hop, theater, or virtually any other kind of expressive exercise at this East Village mainstay. Every Thursday is Latin Jazz night—a longstanding tradition at the café—and upcoming concerts include the bright keysmanship of piano man Hector Martignon (December 20) and the breezy congas and brass of Willie Martinez and La Familia Sextet (December 27). Those with more dramatic tastes might check out Tony Drazan’s The Nod (select dates through Sunday, January 13), a one-man show about the writer and star’s unhealthy coping mechanism of nodding, a noncommittal gesture of affirmation that both bought and cost him the world. Most Fridays at 10:15 p.m., the stage hosts its Friday Night Slam, starring such poets as Rico Frederick (December 21) and Megan Falley (December 28).


The poetry slams are sooo much fun! All the poets are so talented and it's such a lively, festive, and joyful event. I love it!

The emcees and the poets are excellent and the crowd had a blast. The people that work there are friendly.
