To have great poets,
there must be great audiences.
Walt Whitman

We Are DPL.

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.

Come visit us next Tuesday and be part of what has become the largest weekly open mic in America.
