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 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.

I have seen the sign dozens of times and have been to other piano bars, so I thought I knew what this place was. I was wrong. We went in and instantly realized that we were at the wrong place. Easily 20 years to young...More

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