Good place to go for the younger crowd, when you're looking for a little more enthusiasm, or you've had a few and just have to hear Billy Joel in person...
The owner Corey laid 20 of us off in Key West with out any notice knowing he only had a year lease. (Which we did not). He had his GM send us an email the day it closed telling us we were out of a job as of right now. People are having a hard time feeding their kids, paying rent, some had to drop out of school. It is extremely hard to get a job down here from June-January and he knew that. When we opened he preached about taking care of his employees like family. I'd hate to be related to him. I have tried to contact him numerous times and he will not respond. No apology, no letters of recommendation, just closed the doors and he never looked back. Well, we're still down here regretting ever working there. Thanks Corey, your really helping the economic recovery by adding to the 13 million people that are out of work, but hey, at least you made money and thats all that matters. One of the reasons he closed the bar in Key West, which was busy every night, was due to not being able to charge a cover at the door, because no one would pay it down there. He uses the undocumented money to pay his piano players and not record it to the IRS.
I think its funny that we are required to give two weeks notice of quitting but he can close the doors and leave us all unemployed. PLEASE SPEND YOUR MONEY SOMEWHERE THAT ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES
Crazy Crowded but Lots of Fun! – First off.... it's a piano bar so expect loud drunks and young college kids and lots of bachelorette parties and birthday parties and crowded pandemonium and of course crummy service.. BUT what can you expect at a dueling piano bar!?? It is fantastic for large groups of friends.... never a dull moment!
Please sing your last song, and close up shop – All I got to say is- staff...not so great. Downgraded in the past few years...now they just don't care. The playset is the same - has been for six years, except those three new songs they add in the set, at the same time...for my money I am going to Penguin Dueling Piano Bar in Dallas...much more original. Pete's- my money is going elsewhere, if you don't care anymore , neither do I.
It gets really crowded – This place is okay. I have been to better piano bars. But what I don't understand is why, if there is standing room only and its so packed you can barely move to get a beer, why does it still cost full price to get in. Even if they only have an hour till close, it still costs full price to enter... I think its something worth rethinking.
All Out Riot! – this was absolutely the most fun i've had in a while. cocktail waitresses were quick and friendly. the performers were hilarious and also talented. i love how you can make requests on napkins and place them on the piano. overall it is a super fun placefor dates, friends, parties, or just a good time. correction on the info on here, yes you can smoke inside and no you cant park on the street. parking can be hard to find sometimes but if you drive around a lil bit you'll eventually find one.
Totally F***ing Awesome – Totally enjoyed my visit and plan to make it a weekly ritual. This place rocks and brought back awesome memories from Rosie O'Gradys in P'cola, Florida. Service was good. It was a Thursday night and we never had an empty glass even when it did get crowded. Overall - Two Thumbs Up!!!
Jerk Bartenders – I went here once and that was enough. Totally rude. Stay away.
