Fun place for a drink (or basic food) to enjoy a dueling piano environment. Lots of fun. Also have painting classes for a fun outing of creativity, drinks, and time with friends. Love the name of this Salt Lake City bar...birlliant!

I've had fun doing Karaoke in over 26 states, on my way to singing in all 50, plus DC! This is probably the worst bar I've come across for Karaoke!!! The favoritism and bribes cause for a slim chance to sing. I actually love in Salt Lake City and frequent this bar. Even though I'm a local and frequent patron,... More

This was such a fun night for us. If you want to drop money on the pianos to get your song played, go for it, but I found the musical selection to be all over the place with many of the normal songs you'd expect. They even have a gong so if someone's song selection stinks, you can pay up,... More

Another nightclub with typical Utah pours. The bartender was the only redeeming factor of the experience.

We went on a Saturday night with the dueling pianos and it was pretty fun, but one of the two had such a bad mic we couldn't understand what he was saying or singing. I'm pretty sound sensitive and the overall acoustics made it only tolerable for about an hour. There was a buzz and the reverberation made it hard... More

If you've ever been to a dualing pianos performance, you know the drill. Put your money up for song requests and the biggest tips get first consideration to play or not play a particular song. They did birthday jokes and funny/raunchy tunes as well. The cover was $5.00, which wasn't bad and the drinks are the going rate for a... More

The Tavernacle is great place to go for fun, music, dancing.....the piano players are awesome! They can be a bit crude, but it makes for a "never a dull moment" kind of night!! Take your ones ($1), your list of favorite songs, your best friends and your sense of humor and you're sure to have a GREAT night!

This is really a bar not sure they even had food or at least it was not offered to us. Great atmosphere. They have dueling pianos. No cover on the Saturday night that we went. Would have given it a five but drinks were watered down. Not worth the $6 they charged. We did have a ton of fun here.... More
