As a visitor loved this place! Dropped by after dinner and enjoyed the music and the other patrons. Agree with a previous review the people watching is great. Friendly, upbeat with a crowd ready to share stories or sing along.

We were attending a downtown event and visited the piano bar twice during the week, and the experiences were totally different. The first night we found a pleasant staff, a fun crowd, and great music. The drinks were overpriced but tasted great, and the staff...More

We had a big group and had to wait about 20 min to get in. Not a big deal to wait when it’s worth it, and this wasn’t. At least for me. The piano player really didn’t have a good voice, and his selection of...More

We went on a Monday night and had an absolute blast. I hadn't been here before. Good service and awesome music- even songs by request. I wish I lived here- I'd go again and again.

I only have a cranberry & pineapple drink. Listen to a few songs. I was the only customer there. It was different for me. I've never been in a piano bar before. I'm sure it's fun for a group.

We stopped in here for drinks. It was a very quaint Piano bar & an upstairs cigar area. This place has a very 1950s retro mobster feel. We had beers and listened to some music. Stayed about an hour. It was fun.

Yes. Smart casual. Don't disrespect the Redhead. No rags , but demeanor is more important
