“Used to be Great...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2015

Every spring training, visiting this place was a must. Performers were were talented and fun. Not this year! Performers, especially guy with chops, were screechy and songs unrecognizable. Chops guy thought he was actually funny. Had one drink and left.

Playing catch up on reviews...Strange seating, which results in scattered table service, but that might be a piano bar thing. Quite crowed on a Saturday night!

Thanks for visiting The Big Bang on your trip to Tempe! We hope you had a fun time, and will come back next time you are in town. It looks like you live in Cincinnati. Did you know there's a Big Bang in Columbus?

Thanks again!

“A great time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

What great fun! I went to the Big Bang last night (Saturday night) with my mother in law. The place was perfect for both is us- music that we both enjoyed and the enthusiasm of the crowd was great. We arrived early and were able to get a front row seat. I found it easier to go tothe bar for a beverage, it was usually uncrowded and the bartender was friendly and fast. Stayed till around midnight and both of us really enjoyed ourselves, I would consider this a must do when in Tempe.

“Very entertaining!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is a place for a good night fun with friends!! The service is very good, but it gets too crowded so sometimes it is hard to get a waiter's attention.
The Piano Dueling is very entertaining, although sometimes you can barely hear since the sound it's not so very good.

“Fun time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

This was a fun place, evidently quite famous in the area too - though we didnt know it at the time. Talented musicians - both hilarious and skilled at playing a variety of instruments - and fantastic bartenders
