Da Poetry Lounge Feature

Da Poetry Lounge is a poetry venue at the Greenway Court Theatre, Los Angeles. We have been in operation since 1998.

The ultimate goal of DPL is to create a communal space for people to be heard. We celebrate poetry in all forms, and welcome all those who are courageous enough to share their stories or are willing to support others that do.

Not only the largest running open mic venue in America, welcoming an average of 250+ audiences per week, DPL reaches beyond its weekly open mic to inspire the world.
