We just happened to be walking by and decided to check it out. We were so glad that we did. What a fun time!!! The piano players are quite talented and also very funny. Audience participation was great. A lot of fun.

“Mediocre acoustics”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

It was hard to hear the lyrics and what the musicians were saying or singing. We were there on a Friday night and there were a lot of birthday celebrations. That night the crowd was quite young and they kept the waiters busy ordering drinks. Some food was being served - bar munchies. The drinks were good - not watered down at all - prices fair. We paid a $7 cover per person. As a more senior citizen I would not go back.

“Pianos singing and laughter great, place it's self - not so much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

We met some colleagues here while on a conference. We met at 8. A few seats were available.

Fairly ropey place, or more basic than I would have thought.

No cover charge, but if you want a song requested be prepared to add some cash to your request

Irrespective of the above the pianist singers were excellent and fun. They didn't really take a break and we were there about 3 hours

Good fun if you can close your eyes to some of it.

“Thursday night fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013 via mobile

No cover charge, Thursday night. Group of six of us. Pianists pretty accomplished and 'played to the crowd'. Other reviews have noted the 'risqué' nature of some of the songs etc but they are giving the majority of the crowd exactly what they want, younmake your choice! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will go again

“fun night out great piano players”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2012

Had a good time celebrating a friends birthday. 7 dollar cover charge was a bit steep, but fun none the less. The musicians were great, and the crowd seemed to love it. Didn't buy anything to eat, but the food traveling by our table looks tasty. Nachos, cheese fries amongst other fried treats. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive to drink orders. The seating was a bit cramped, and could have been arranged better. A bit raunchy but that's what makes it fun!! Overall a fun place to go with friends!
