Up until now, there’s been a void for middle-aged Manhattan professionals and martini sippers who like to get a little twisted while belting out a few tunes around the baby grand. But with an array of spirited and talented piano performers, The Piano Bar may have found a niche in Philly’s nightlife scene. This charming little bar and lounge is packed every night with Philadelphia locals looking to enjoy some live entertainment, and take part in some liquor-fueled sing-a-longs. And, the house pianists can perform everything from Broadway to Radiohead at the mere request of their patrons. If you’re still on the fence about a late night visit to this sexy after hours spot, consider this added perk: The Piano Bar offers to pay for patrons’ cab fare from ANYWHERE in Philly!

Dark, melodious, sensuous, and hidden are words that come to mind when describing The Piano Bar, in the early evening at least. Once thirsty patrons get settled in and the clock begins to tick away into the wee hours of the morning, The Piano Bar suddenly erupts into song. People begin to move closer to the stage and then up beside the piano, singing along and conducting the rest of the inebriated chorus. The combination of strong drinks, good people, and fun piano tunes, create a friendly and welcoming unlike anywhere else in Philly.
