Electronic keyboards, drums, and microphones turned up to the point of distortion made this more of a rock concert than a "piano bar" experience. Not to mention the obnoxious and rude remarks of the musicians. "Dueling teenage boys" would be a better name for this...More

Came here for my friend's birthday. Had a great time! The staff was wonderful and the music and piano players were great! There wasn't a huge variety of drinks and no dance floor but people were definitely having a good time and singing along.
