View Website

Come check out the Nuyorican's most popular weekly event! Watch professional poets perform and our Wednesday night Slam winners spit! Judges of our Friday Night Slams are 5 randomly chosen members of our audience (in other words, it could be you!). $12 General admission at the door (a line forms outside an hour before admittance, general admittance starts at 10pm). Tired of waiting on line? Buy VIP Tickets online and mingle with da poets! $25 VIP admission (online only). Arrive at the Main Entrance (and not in the line) by 9:30pm SHARP! PLEASE NOTE: Seating is granted as capacity allows. In order to be guaranteed admission, ticket-holding guests must be present at the venue by the time that doors open (9:30pm for VIPs and 10pm for General Admission). Priority is given to guests who have bought tickets in advance; once all ticket-holding guests have been seated, we will accommodate walk-up ticket buyers as space permits. Guests who arrive after 10PM are admitted on a case-by-case basis, if space permits.
