The towering, multi-level NYC off-shoot of Nashville's legendary Grand Ole Opry features live country music on a variety of stages, as well as several full bars and a 2018 OpenTable Diners' Choice Award-winning food menu, offered from 8 am daily. The Bluebird Cafe songwriter series, a pop-up showcase mirroring Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, features special performances from artists several times nightly on Fridays.
The center devoted solely to poetry holds readings, conversations, workshops and exhibitions throughout the year. The library contains more than 60,000 volumes, which are available to read in-house. The children’s room offers young ones the opportunity to experience poetry first-hand, either through readings and performances by noted poets and actors or by composing their own poems on old-faxhioned but fully functioning manual typewriters.
Hours: Tu–F 11 am–7 pm, Sat 11 am–6 pm. Children’s room: Th-Sa 11 am-5 pm
