Cocktail Open Mic Vol. 8

Fri, June 7, 8-11:30 PM

Baileo Tanzpassion Leipzig
Dittrichring 17, 04109 Leipzig (upstairs from club ELSTERARTIG)

Sometimes we go to concerts, sometimes we go to the theater, and as much as we love both of those things, we kinda know what to expect. At our Cocktail Open Mic, you never know what to expect, other than talent and pure entertainment.

Do you like to sing, play instruments, read poetry, or tell stories? Have you recently discovered a new talent you’d like to share? Now is your chance to be bold! The stage is open for anyone with something to express. We just ask that you keep it respectful and free of hate speech.

With a beautiful venue offering reasonably priced cocktails and other drinks, and audience members as well as performers usually hailing from all over the world, the Cocktail Open Mic is a rare gem. The many different creative genres in several languages make this one of Leipzig’s most inclusive, fun, inspiring events.

As always, the performances will be preceded and followed by a fun evening of mingling and drinking – a perfect place to start a Friday night.

Come enjoy open mic on the threshold of summer, in a classy, inspiring and friendly environment!

LeipGlo's Cocktail Open Mic happens every other month at Baileo Tanzpassion Leipzig.

Female Entrepreneurs and Creatives in Leipzig

“For all you ladies who wanna make stuff happen, join us! We meet every other Tuesday at 7 pm in Basislager to learn from and with each other in an interactive format (e.g. topics like target customer, your own brand, and thoughts on ‘fear’). And of course, there is always time for networking, sharing experiences, helping each other, and just having a lot of fun together. (Deutsch und English, yes both!).” – Damaris Kroeber
