About
Pete's is a Rock & Roll Dueling Piano Bar. If singing as loud as possible in a crowd is not for you sit at the back of the room. 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.

This place was awesome! They don't take reservations Monday-Thursday - we went on a Thursday night at got there right when the doors opened at 730PM. We got a table right in front of the pianos and were able to enjoy seating as it began to fill up through the night. The performers are so talented! I have been recommending piano bars to folks since we got back.

My main gripe is that while making requests, we initially were told a dollar or two was sufficient to get your requests played. As the night went on, people with bigger wallets would attach, maybe a 10, 20 or even a 50, to their requests. Pushing other requests to the very bottom. I just didn't feel that was fair because we don't all have the same income but still want to enjoy the entertainment while having our own personal requests being played.
Secondly, the temperature in the joint was absolutely freeeeezing and uncomfortable.
Other than that, the night was alright.
Next trip to Austin, I would choose against another attempt here simply because you end up leaving a lot of money with the requests and never get your songs played.

Very fun, very talented musicians. If you go, and expect to have a few drinks to let loose a little, know that you should get your drinks before you go. Extremely watered down. I was thinking maybe it was just me, but I actually noticed people at the beginning have a good time while a little tipsy. As the first hour passed, I actually witnessed most of the original people that were there at opening, sobering up while drinking. I know this because even after drinking their two of their normal drinks and their 32oz specials, I was completely sober. So yeah, my problem was the expensive no booze drinks. Great entertainment though.

This place is always packed and for good reason. Always consistently great talent singing and playing the piano. They seem to know every song in existence. The waitress service is quick and attentive and the beers are great. Very popular with bachelorette parties. Make a reservation if you have a large group. Bring cash to tip which helps the chances of your requests to be played.

We had the best Saturday night out when we were in Austin’s 6th Street. After visiting a couple of bars, we entered Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar and stayed there until they closed at 2am because we tremendously enjoyed the talent of the pianists. They are outstanding! Some of the pianists play the drums as well!! We used the yelp check-in to save on the entrance fee. They serve alcohol only. I didn’t see any table with food. We ordered our drinks from the bar coz we didnt see a lot of servers. We will be back when we go to Austin again! So much fun! Highly recommended!

Great place! A must! Had a blast! Would for sure hit this place again and again. Drinks were reasonable and the dueling pianos were the best. Crowded, Loud, Great people watching, and I would miss it!!! If you like music and enjoy everything from hip hop to rock to oldies to classics to whatever, they play it. We were there on a Wednesday night at about 8:30. Place was packed by 9. Opens at 7:30, at least the time we were there. Check schedules

Had a group event at Pete's last March for a company top producer group. It was so much fun we decided to celebrate New Year's Eve at Pete's. It was fabulous! It was so much fun!!

Really fun night $12 to get in seemed a bit much but good fun. The bar staff were a miserable bunch though so I didn't tip which made them more miserable.
