The Poetry Brothel: Washington, D.C.
Little Miss Whiskey's Golden Dollar
1104 H St NE
The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Poetry Brothel presents a rotating cast of both male and female poets as “whores,” each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the “poetry whores” are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true brothel needs a good cover; The Poetry Brothel’s is an immersive cabaret, offering a live music, burlesque, vaudeville and fortune-tellers, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.
Doors open at 8pm; show starts at 9pm. Themed costumes and/or evening wear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.
