If you can't take a joke sit at the back of the room. If you are ready to clap, sing and scream come grab a seat on the front row and put your song requests on the piano! We are open 7 nights a week and our performers will amaze you. « less

If you are looking for fun this place is where you need to go. We have been to a few dueling piano bars but this one is a step up from them all. The staff really know how to work the crowd and it can get really busy but you cant go wrong here

What a great place for nostalgia. These musicians are extremely talented. They engage the crowd and they have a wealth of music knowledge for different genres. I think every song that was requested while we were there they were able to play and did a good job at it. Service was great as well from the bar. My only complaint... More

No doubt it is because of places like this that Austin is called the "Live Music Capital of the World". This is my favorite place on 6th Street and a must stop whenever in Austin. Service is great and the musicians are excellent: funny, very interactive and can play a wide range of musical styles.

Whenever I go to 6th street, which isn't too often, I have to make an appearance at Pete's Piano Bar. I've celebrated my wife's and friends birthdays there. The musicians never disappoint and definitely know how to work the crowd..Get there somewhat early so you can get a great seat.

Pete's is one of my favorite places on 6th Street by far! It's one of the few places that charges on cover on 6th. Fine by me because it keeps all the 21st birthday party groups out! I cannot count how many times I've been to this place. Its the same jokes and songs but always different people getting called... More

My wife and I usually end up here when we go downtown, there is always a party, good-time atmosphere, and if you aren't having fun, it's your own fault. The guys/gals they've got on stage are hilarious. Halloween here is even better yet, we we're even lucky enough to have won the costume contest 2 years ago. I tell anyone... More

I celebrated my birthday here and it was totally worth it. They made sure to embarrass me in front of my friends and then gave me a free drink. Even though the place was a bit crowded (it was a Friday night) it was still tons of fun. If you have never been to a dueling paino bar, I suggest... More

We go to Pete's Piano Bar eve time we are in downtown Austin. Its always upbeat and a blast. For me I have for the most part always had great service as well. Now there is going to be several bachelorette parries going on but that's half the fun watching the parties interact with the pianos players. Ya gotta try... More

We've been to the Pete's in downtown Houston numerous times so we were excited to experience the original Pete's in Austin and we weren't disappointed!!! Their musicians were fabulous and played not only the piano but the drums and guitar as well. They constantly interact with the audience keeping the energy high and everyone smiling. This location has an upper... More

As South Africans we got to teach all the guys "alice who the f@#$ is alice". Brilliant spot to hear the guys perform impromptu requests handed in with a dollar.
