“Favorite bar in New York”
Review of Brandy's Piano Bar

Brandy's Piano Bar
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Brandy's is a wonderful hole in the wall with nonstop entertainment by a top quality piano player/singer who can do all requests. The wait staff are also professional singers and occasionally sing a number between meals. Several Broadway performers show up later and bring the house down as everyone in the bar sings along. We have been going for years and the crowd has changed to a younger straighter crowd than in prior years but it is still amazing!

I have been going to Brandy's Piano Bar for 20 years. Good news, the entertainment is awesome as it has always been and even better now that you can't smoke in bars in NYC. Bad news is that they haven't changed a thing. Its a dive bar and the bathroom is small and yucky. But the place and the people never disappoint. Most of the servers are Broadway actors and so they rotate in and out based on when they have show work. So the level of talent is incomparable!!!! Drinks are cheap compared to most other places in the city. You can't miss with this one, just don't expect luxury!

LOVED Brandy's! What a fun way to end a long day sightseeing around the city. Our piano player/singer was hilarious, and so talented. The bartender and cocktail server even got in on the singing and blew us away. Fun night for sure!!!

This place is great. The atmosphere, the talent, the snarky staff. Its wonderful, fun and totally NY. If you miss this place, you miss out! Will make this a tradition ever time I visit. Cant imagine a more unique experience.

We had a blast, listening to all of the performers! The talent was terrific, and the crowd was very fun. We will definitely go back. I just wish they would focus more on the drinks. They were were pretty basic, and were small and expensive. And the passing of the tip jar, on top of that, felt like we were constantly getting squeezed.
