  • Los Angeles, CA
The restaurant is a neighborhood bistro and bar delivering one of the most lively and welcoming dining experiences in Los Angeles, including delicious food and libations, friendly service and a laidback, unpretentious atmosphere. Located on the second floor of a thoughtfully restored Masonic Hall in the heart of L.A.'s Highland Park, the restaurant exudes vintage-era warmth and charm, with a dining room designed by L.A.-based Design, Bitches, and a menu and hospitality approach intended to celebrate and continue the building's nearly century-long history as a community gathering place. Chef Hovig Agop's Mediterranean menu offers a range of modern dips, salads, small plates and entrees at affordable price points, making it an ideal destination for both everyday dining and special occasions. The bar program includes beer, wine and creative "fast craft" cocktails that playfully pay homage to the establishment's Masonic temple past, such as the Chapter Sweetheart, Hall Grog and Johnny the Giant (a tribute to eight-foot-tall silent film star John Aasen, who was inducted into the Masons in 1924). Security per guard: $150.00

Quiet and secluded house with lots of room, booked it for a poetry event. Felt very private and at the same time had enough space to fit a good number of people in. Comfortable and nicely put out.

Good space for a poetry reading. Nice to have the extra rooms for people to chill out, and the main room is cozy but has a great vibe.

Small theater, the perfect size for a reading — intimate atmosphere but big enough to accomodate a bigger crowd of poetry-lovers if needed. Great location and parking is easy.

About Poetry

Roses are red, violets are blue, if you’re searching for a poetry venue, we’ve got a space for you! Poetry readings let you experience poems the way the author intended them to be experienced. Rather than just reading the printed words yourself, you get to listen to the emphasis on different words and syllables, and you get a deeper understanding of the true meaning of the poem.

If you’re hosting a poetry reading, however, there’s one crucial decision you’ll need to make: finding the best poetry space. The right venue will offer everything you need for an immersive and enchanting experience — a direct connection between the poet and their audience, comfortable surroundings for all attendees, and an atmosphere to match the poems being performed.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at how you can find the perfect poetry reading venue.

The Best Poetry Venues

The best poetry venues combine practical features with something a little harder to define. While location, size, layout, and amenities are all important, the space also needs to draw the audience in so they can experience the poems being read on a new level. Here are some popular locations to consider if you’re ready to start comparing venues.

  • Art Galleries
    Poetry is creative and inspiring, so where better to host a recital than in an art gallery? With high ceilings, whitewashed walls, and eclectic works lining the walls, a gallery is the perfect setting for some spoken word.

  • Cafes
    Good coffee and good poetry go together like peanut butter and jelly. Even better, the right cafe can offer the ideal cozy and comfy vibe for an intimate poetry recital. Get yourself a steaming-hot cup of coffee, maybe a sweet treat to eat too, then sit back and enjoy the show.

  • Lounge Bars
    Looking for a poetry venue that’s exclusive, suave, and simply oozes understated style. With gorgeous leather lounges, mood lighting, and a definite speakeasy vibe, a lounge bar could be just the space you’re searching for. These elegant parlor rooms are chic, sophisticated, and perfect for a poetry recital.

  • Rooftop Patios
    Some lines (and some entire poems) are best enjoyed when shouted from the rooftops. So if the weather permits, taking your recital to a secluded rooftop patio is a great way to take your art to the next level.

  • Event Spaces
    These multipurpose venues are jacks of all trades. They may not be as unique or character-filled as some other options, but they are extremely practical and can be tailored to suit a variety of needs.

What to Look for in Poetry Spaces

There are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a poetry venue. Take the following into account when comparing spaces to find a location that perfectly suits your needs.

  • Ambiance
    First, think about the vibe you want to create at your poetry reading. Will it be serious and intense, or a little more laid-back and casual? Do you need a cozy and intimate space or something that feels a little more spacious and extravagant? Finding a space that matches the poetry being recited will give your audience a more immersive experience.

  • Location
    A convenient location is a must for your poetry venue. Look for a place that is centrally located, easy to access, and has plenty of parking. You may also want to consider what other attractions are nearby, such as bars and restaurants, for audience members planning a full night out.

  • Size
    The venue you choose will need to have enough space to seat your audience comfortably. At the same time, you don’t want to select a space that’s too large for your needs, as this will destroy the ambiance and lessen the connection between the poet and the audience.

  • Essential Facilities
    Now it’s time to think about all those must-have features you need at your poetry venue. This list could vary greatly depending on the event you’re planning, but some of the factors to consider include accessibility, bathroom accommodations, and layout as well as AV equipment and furniture.

  • Price
    Finally, don’t forget that price is always an important consideration when choosing a venue. Set yourself a budget before you start comparing venues and be careful not to fall in love with a space you simply can’t afford.

Poetry Inspiration

Searching for inspiration to help make your next poetry reading a truly memorable occasion? Here are a few ideas to get you started.

  • Cozy Cafes
    Grab a cup, pull up a chair, and get ready for a memorable evening of the spoken word. Casual, cozy, and offering spectacular views of the Austin skyline, this downtown cafe is a wonderful creative space.

  • Beautiful Bookshops
    There’s something about the smell of books that is enough to put a smile on any keen reader’s face. So why not host your poetry reading at a charming independent bookshop? It’s the perfect setting in which to celebrate the written word while doing your bit to generate support for a local small business at the same time.

  • Thriving Theaters
    Reading poetry is as much about the performance as it is about the words on the page. Let the poet take center stage and choose a theater as your next poetry recital venue. This will ensure an excellent connection between the audience and the poet, and really add a sense of theater (pun intended) to the occasion.

  • Gorgeous Gardens
    Nobody said your poetry space had to be indoors. In fact, some works lend themselves quite perfectly to an outdoor setting, and a lush garden could be the ideal environment for your next recital. When the audience feels a connection to nature and the great outdoors, this could help your work resonate with them on a completely different level.
