…life, literature & the pursuit of happiness — in the famous Troubadour basement…
Founded in 1961 as a writers’ café — a place to eat, play backgammon, people-watch, work on poems — or simply set the world to rights — Earls Court’s Troubadour Coffee-House became the hub of a folk-&-poetry revolution with Paul Simon, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, the Dubliners & many others, performing alongside a wide range of contemporary poets.
Celebrating 40+ years of this unique poetry landmark, Coffee-House Poetry’s vibrant Monday night readings (8 to 10 pm) feature famous & not-so-famous poets — local, regional & international —small-press/magazine evenings, celebrations of the great & the dead, events for up-&-coming writers & regular “themed” poetry-parties… all in the famous bohemian basement with interval music, books & magazines on sale and the latest “buzz” on poetic happenings throughout the capital.
