Report: Bowery Poetry Club planning March return

The revamped Bowery Poetry Club looks to reopen on March 18, Serena Solomon reported yesterday at DNAinfo. According to founder Bob Holman, the space will be known as Bowery Poetry at 308 Bowery.

More from the article:

Along with a shortened name, Bowery Poetry will also refine its focus — starting with its unofficial grand opening event on March 18.

"We will be more poetry centric and project driven," said Holman, who has scheduled a huge concert, poetry slam and dance for March 18 in celebration of two endangered foreign languages — Breton, a Celtic tongue, and Garifuna, from Central America.

As Solomon previously reported, Tribeca burlesque club Duane Park is merging with Bowery Poetry... here's how the two will split up the time — 308 Bowery will operate as a burlesque venue Tuesday through Saturday. Bowery Poetry will operate Saturday afternoons, Sunday and Monday.
