After a successful debut at King’s Head Members Club, the Poetry Brothel London returns to this fascinating venue to celebrate the poetical energy, the finely seasoned eroticism, the literary magnificence and the intoxicating imagination of Anais Nin. The event, -A spy in the house of Love- is a title of one of her magnificent works of fiction published in 1954 which describes the sexual liberation of Sabina who just like our fiery poets is not afraid to open the chasm of desire and turn inside out like a glove of fire. In this edition poets and musicians shall explore the passageways and shadows of romance and eroticism and offer the audience a unique peek into the psyche of an amorous poet. Expect melancholy, longing, desire and a hell of a poetical party. One to one private readings with your poet of choice.


Readings from the most compelling poetry performers in London. Including Lazarus McCarthy, Bibi Synthe, Miss Wood, Professor Bluestockings, Diego Luna, Blackbird, Faustine and more.
Music by Frederick Snow duo Tarot readings Burlesque by Belle de Beauvoir
Imagine beauty encapsulated in the literary expression of a powerful psyche. Imagine purchasing a portion of a poet's mental anatomy. Imagine being locked in a perfumed room with a spirit and a flesh of your own choosing, jaunting through the alleyways and corridors of an artist's consciousness. Imagine sexiness and poems dancing together like flames with the wind.

The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry away from classrooms, lecture halls and Ivory towers and places it in the lush, radiant and fiery interiors of a bordello. Based on the concept of the fin-de-siecle bordellos in New Orleans and Paris, many of which functioned as safe havens for fledgling, avant-garde artists, The Poetry Brothel presents a rotating cast of "poetry whores" each operating within a carefully constructed character. For a small fee, you can purchase a piece of the "whore's" poetical spirit and absorb yourself in the true nature of one-on-one poetry readings in back rooms and other secret and intimate spaces.

Poetry Brothel London
The Poetry Brothel is a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry away from classrooms, lecture halls and Ivory towers and places it in the lush, radiant and fiery interiors of a bordello. Based in concept on the fin-de-siecle bordellos in New Orleans and Paris, many of which functioned as safe havens for fledgling, avant-garde artists, The Poetry Brothel presents a rotating cast of poets as "whores," each operating within a carefully constructed character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private, one-on-one poetry readings in back rooms and other secret and intimate spaces, propitious surroundings for the advent of psychic connections and true poetical/existential experiences.
