The name of this colorful joint on the Bowery reveals its poetry-slam roots, but it’s also the truest current iteration of the East Village’s legendary arts scene: all kinds of jazz, folk, hip-hop and improv-theater acts can routinely be found here. Family shows are staged almost every Sunday during the school year. The BPC also offers a range of sandwiches, and hot and cold drinks—and there are generally seats available to rest one’s weary feet.
