Zinc Bar Reading Series in NYC

Last Sunday I had the opportunity to read at the Zinc Bar located in Greenwich Village with Chris Patrick Lopera and Salman Rayhan Patwary. Chris is a Colombian-American poet from New York. Salman is a writer from New York pursuing a BFA in writing at Brooklyn College.

The Zinc Bar has a relaxed and chill environment. In addition to jazz the Zinc Bar has had a regular poetry reading series every Sunday with doors opening at 4:30 pm and the readers starting at 5:00 pm. Joe, Alex, and Douglas have been hosting the reading series for about 25 years, give or take two years, and are wonderful people to work with.

During the event they “Pass the Hat” for donations. While all donations are optional they do suggest a $5 per guest donation but are open to any contribution you can give. All the proceeds are split between the readers for that night.

If you find yourself in the area on a Sunday then stop on by to listen and support visiting poets. I’m definitely looking forward to reading again and visiting in the future.
