US and Canadian Poetry Open Mikes

Open Mics in Bethesda, MD

Our monthly open mic nights are the perfect opportunity to get your moment in the spotlight or watch other talented locals perform! FREE to attend or perform, we are a supportive environment that encourages applauding (and tipping!) performers of all ages and ability levels.

It's a small space, best suited to singer-songwriters, poets, and acoustic musicians.

We run from 6-9 pm and our full menu plus GF pizza are available for sale.

Each set can go as little as 5 minutes to as long as 35 minutes depending on the experience and material prepared by the performer. Reserve your preferred set time below, and make sure to provide us links to your website or social media so we can hype you up!
