Time 20.30 - 02.30
Date October 30th - October 30th
Location The Liquor Rooms, D.2

The shadow of the twilight is upon us! Sunday, October 30th, the Poetry Brothel phenomenon shall descend upon the Liquor Rooms, to strike fear and inspiration into the hearts of mortals.

The Poetry Brothel is a nightclub where jazz musicians, burlesque dancers, body painters, magicians and tarot card readers mingle and perform, but poetry holds centre stage as the headline act. The poets are also available (for a fee) and will read you a poem, one-to-one. The event reminds us that poetry can be intimate, that poetry can be boisterous, that poetry can celebrate the night and the many passions encountered there.

So prepare to face your fears, as this unique event, already a “must” in New York, Paris, Barcelona, New Orleans, and Buenos Aires (among others), joins the Bram Stoker Festival. The creatures of the night await!  

Strictly over 18s.  Valid ID and neat dress essential.

Tickets €20.  

Fang-tastic Offer! 

The Poetry Brothel and Bram Stoker Festival are thrilled to offer festival-goers more ‘Bite’ for their buck!  The first 50 ticket buyers will receive a special offer token, which they can use on the night to redeem a private poetry performance, tarot card reading, spooky portrait, or any of the other attractions on offer at The Poetry Brothel.
