Best place to hear poetry 

The Shed

807 East Main Street, Durham

(732) 570-2935

The Shed's candlelit tables, tapestry- covered walls, and comfy couches create a living-room atmosphere that is also perfect for poetry, which the Golden Belt jazz club has increasingly embraced. Most notably, it hosts Duke's Little Corner Reading Series, a thoughtfully curated showcase for the local and national literary academy—most recently, the prolific poet, critic, and curator John Yau. With a bar stocked with wine, beer, and pour-over coffee, it's a more inviting venue for university-sponsored poetry readings than some obscure campus room. The club has also hosted a packed house for Inversion, the reading series associated with the experimental music festival S.W. The So & So Reading Series at CAM Raleigh remains essential, but with all this new energy, The Shed is the place to try poetry now.
