We so enjoyed listening to the pianist/singer and singing along with him to favorite songs! Also, the bar and restaurant areas were relaxing.
We also heard from a friend that it is a lovely place to stay overnight but a bit pricey.
We enjoyed a delicious dinner (spinach pasta w/salmon in a lemon sauce and steak with loaded potatoes) plus creme brulee for dessert. Wonderful cocktails, too, all the while listening to Doug Montgomery sing and play the piano. He even graciously allowed my talented companion, a...More

Sitting around, don't get out. I decided to look up a piano bar. Vanessie came up.
What a wonderful safe place to come and be around local and visiting out of state folks. Food is excellent, bar tenders...More
Pianist Doug Montgomery is the raison d'etre here. He has a wealth of musical knowledge, accepts requests and on occasion brings up vocalist from the audience some are seasoned some assault your ears, but he is accommodating. THE GOOD is way over prices and bland...More
As a musician himself, my husband and I like to find live music to enjoy. The driver from our hotel suggested Vanessie's because Doug Montgomery would be playing that night. We totally loved hearing him play. He played all our requests beautifully. One especially knocked...More

Sorry I'm not sure. There is a specific bar area and then there is seating at tables that is actually closest to the piano and food is served so that might make it fine for kids. A quick call to the hotel would sort that out. If you have kids who like music it would be very inspiring for them to listen to Doug. I hope you can go.
