As an entertainment venue, the musicians will impress you with their repertoire of thousands of popular songs from the last fifty years. It is an all request show, with no set list. All your favorite songs from when you first cranked up the stereo in your car and sang at the top of your lungs - just ask, and you might be amazed at many they know. Never taking themselves too seriously, they are all too happy to poke fun at themselves, the songs they sing, and even the audience. It's a rock-and-roll, sing-along, total party atmosphere. We also pride ourselves on having the best service in Asheville. Our cocktail servers and bartenders are often a part of the show! Come try our innovative and eclectic menu--we're the only ones in town that serve fishbowl drinks! We hope to see you out at Off the Wagon sometime!

So Much Fun!

An excellent time! Was sore the next day from all the laughing! Waitresses kept the drinks coming all night long and the entertainment was unique and fun!

It's what you'd expect from a piano bar with a bit more focus on southern music. I was disappointed with the assigned seating and lack of space to just hang out. This is a good spot if you are with a big group that went to various SEC schools. Not great for couples looking to enjoy music.

Thank you for visiting Off the Wagon! I apologize our 4,000 sq ft space wasn't big enough for your needs. If you visit us in the future, we do not have assigned seating but we do have a host that seats you. If you were unhappy with your location, you could have told the host or a server and we... More

This bar is so worth the visit! It has a very laid back atmosphere, a large drink menu, and great service! The musicians are extremely talented and funny and the crowd as a whole does a great job of selecting songs that are great to sing along to. Definitely a must do for people looking for a fun evening.

We stopped in on a Saturday night after dinner-the piano players were great. Unlike most of the dueling piano bars I've been to-there was no place to dance if you want. You're packed in to tables and can't move. It was disappointing. We stayed for less than an hour and went to find somewhere better to hear music and dance.

We are a sing-along type of bar and we did have a full house on your visit. However, we did have people dancing near the column, near the front subwoofer, and in the back along the east wall. Were those spaces not suitable for your dancing requirements? More

My wife and I attended the piano bar on Saturday night. The crowd was very lively and rowdy, which made it fun to be there. The wait staff was very attentive and got our drinks in a quick manner. The piano players were all three very good players. They all picked up on the request very quickly and made the... More

My husband and I stopped in on a Thursday night. It was not too crowded but enough audience to keep requests coming in. The guys knew just about everything requested and if not they knew something else by the artist. Staff was attentive and nice. All in all a fun night.

We went on a Sunday night, not the best night for a piano bar. There were about 20 people and only one piano player. He was good but since there wasn't a 2nd piano player we didn't get the total package so it was disappointing. It was our anniversary and the special occasion section on the song request sheet specified... More

This did not meet up to my expectations of other piano bars I have been too. We arrived to a late opening followed by only one piano entertainer showing up who actually did a great job. The second player showed up around 10:00 but did not offer much to the show. We still managed to have a great time, lots... More

This place was a blast! The musicians were entertaining and the place was packed. If you like good music and fun with some tasty cocktails then this is your place! The music was all very diverse and had something for almost anyone! Staff was great!
