Rosie Perez and Flaco Navaja are just some of the Hollywood stars who have graced the doorstep of the Nuyorican Poets Café. Navaja has appeared in the Tony Award-winning Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam. Before this time, he was a struggling Bronx teen trying to get his voice above the crowd. Nuyorican Poets Café helped him find his voice and confidence to become a successful Hollywood actor.

Open Wide and Join Open Mic

The café has proven to stand the test of time in its 35 years of welcoming stars and would-be stars through its doors and across its stage. They welcome the natives and non-natives from all over New York to come in and stretch their talents. Every Wednesday is open mic, and if the audience adores you then you may move on to the Friday Night Slam! Perhaps it’s not time to come out of your shell? You can always just come out and be an audience member. Every age and every ethnic and cultural background meld into one artistic voice or observer at the Nuyorican Poets Café.

The eclectic and diverse group of artists with varied styles and talents will keep you feeling on a deeper level. Be a welcome voyeur to the hidden thoughts, desires, and lives of the voices of New York.

Find Your Heart & Voice in NYC
Music is simply poetry with a tune and a beat. It has enabled the common person to expose his or her innermost thoughts and feelings and bare his or her soul. At other times, it can leave you feeling as light as a cloud and as lighthearted as any comedy would.

Step aboard the Seastreak and enjoy our full bar to get yourself loosened up to bare your soul or simply sit back and enjoy the sea air, soaking in the surroundings as you lounge on our deck. Whichever way you choose to enjoy your carefree trip across the bay – we are here for you.

Sea you Soon!
