A Fun Upbeat Evening

A group of us came here for drinks and entertainment one night during a conference. They had a solid selection of beer and a few wines and liquors. Nothing to write home about, but just fine for what it is. The reason you would come is for the piano bar entertainment. None of the pianists I heard... read more

We had a work celebration there and reserved space on the mezzanine. It was perfect. We had the use of the bar up there, our own space and a good view for the entertainment. The musicians are very talented and very witty! It's a great break from the 'normal' bar scene. Only down side is drink prices (ouch!). Between the... More

I was recently at a convention and thought we'd drop in for a fun night since it was just down the street. There were 3 of us and we had a blast on a Monday night. Although the place was relatively empty, the dueling piano players acted as if it was a full house. They were talented, fun and entertaining.... More

$10 cover charge to get in for standing room only. Overpriced drinks, crowded, and very hot. We didn't stay long because it was not a comfortable and/or fun environment, which we expected for our Bachelorette Party.

Took my girlfriend here after dinner and the Ferris Wheel for her birthday getaway. There was an exceptionally small crowd that night, so we kind of had a run of the place. The musicians were great!! I took one of the napkins and wrote a note telling them that it was her birthday and asked them to have fun with... More

Over-priced drinks, impossible volume to have any kind of conversation, but very lively destination for 20-something's. They over-served a table of young adults to the point of falling down drunk. Great pianists with a fun sense of humor. May return just for sake of novelty. Any place that has a breathalyzer on the wall ($1.00), probably isn't worried about whether... More

This piano bar makes for a fun evening if you're in the area. I was staying at the Gaylord this place was an easy walk (less than five minutes) and while drink prices are no bargain...but where is...the entertainment makes up for it. The crowd is a little young but they are half the entertainment.

If you're a music lover and don't mind the crowds, this is the place to hang out. Very talented musicians aim to entertain to the fullest between 8 and 1.

We wished we would have went there sooner!! We went on our last night in town! Our server was on the ball and took care of us. However the table needed to be wiped down a couple of times do to spilled drinks and we asked a "passing" server to help out and they weren't really helpful. We waited for... More

Loved the music and the interaction with the crowd and the mirrors with the Phrase of the Day that people can bid on to have their message up on the board. Loved that the music never really stopped because there are musicians rotating in and out of playing mode and break mode. They offered to have audience members play and... More
