Harrahs or NYNY dueling piano bar?

We are planning to go to either the NYNY or Harrahs piano bar on our trip to Vegas in April as I've researched that these are two of the best out there.. Think of going a Thursday or Sunday night.

There will be 5 or 6 of us and we want to be able to have a table. If I'm correct Harrahs does not have table reservations and no cover charge, so I'm asking advice on whether we book a table and pay a cover charge at NYNY or we turn up at Harrahs and hope for the best? We don't really want to arrive at a really early time to get a table but I know that it might have to be the case.

Thank you for your help in advance!

i cant comment on NYNY never been there. The twins at Harrahs however have always shown me a good time. I have been to harrahs piano bar on every trip to vegas (dozen or so) and always find time to go there. They are fun, loud, create a great atmosphere, and all who have been in attendance every time i have been there seem to be having a great time too. If you dont get there fairly early there wont be any tables, they usually have some type of karaoke before the twins start and that can be entertaining enough until the real show starts. I highly recomment Harrahs piano bar, there is no cover, drinks are not cheap, and dont plan on requesting a song unless you want to pony up a $20 minimum. You dont need to pay for requests, they generally cover a large range of tunes. I think you will enjoy the laid back and fun atmosphere!

Both are decent and very popular, and yes, you can book a reservation at NYNY, as far as I know Harrah’s does not charge, I still prefer NYNY over Harrah’s.

There’s also a good one at Town Sq just south of Mandalay bay called Petes.

Hands down NYNY in the evening!!! Although, we've stopped into Harrah's in the afternoon and enjoyed a good show there. But, we never miss at least one evening at the NYNY one.

Cant comment on the NYNY. We tried to check it out on my last trip but all seats were closed for a private function and didnt want to pay $15. per person to stand (I have back issues and all the walking wasnt helping my pinched sciatic nerve). HOWEVER, we visited Harrahs Piano Bar for the first time and LOVED it!! As a matter of fact, loved it so much we went back 3 nights :) Hope you have a great time!

The Dueling Pianos does not start until 9PM!

I like Harrah's- with or without the twins. Yes, you usually do have to get there early to ensure a table for a group, but people are constantly coming and going. If you don't like what you hear, you can take a few steps out of the casino and you will be in Carnaval Court- another fun place at night.

They are identical twins that usually perform at the Harrah's Dueling Piano bar Tuesdays- Saturdays. There are others performing on the nights they are not there.

Harrah's, no question, if the Twins are performing. Raucous and raunchy and fun. No cover except for Fri/Sat nights, and only $5 even then.
