We searched for a piano bar, and got lucky- people were great, music was fun – Karen, who keeps the tunes flowing, was accomodating to all - professional singers and amateurs alike. She exudes a sense of comfort and confidence that puts the strangers who come to the bar at ease and we actually all made friends ,had great laughs, enjoyed the music, and we look forward to coming back. The crowd was as diverse as could be: I mean age-wise style-wise- anybody could go, which makes it all the more fun. Brava Karen and good job Edison/ Rum house.

When was the last time you were in a real Piano Bar??? – This place is great. I was up in NYC visiting my brother and he took me here. you don't see many (or any) old time piano bars anywhere these days. You can sit at a bar that faces the piano - and the lady playing has obviously been doing it for years. She played and sang lots of old songs....and I mean OLD songs. There is also quite a cast of characters who come up and sing with her. Definitely feels like you're in 1972 NYC. Great place to get a martini or scotch on the rocks. Sure, it's a little cheesy - but come on! Don't take yourself so seriously :-)

Editorial Review by Marcella Veneziale – The city forgot to clean up this remnant of the old Times Square, which unironically serves beer, liquor, and complimentary bar snacks.

Watch your money! – No thanks! I witnessed the twenty something bartender ring in bar tabs and put the money in his pocket. He was also taking money from the bar when patrons used the bathroom.

Bar regulars were super friendly and laughed off the barkeeps antics. Apparently its a common occurance that's viewed as reguarly as the sports they show on tv.

User review by emilyraderman – Great place - caddyshack golf club meets 70's porn star hangout. Karen, the piano player takes requests and Christian Slater has been known to drop by after the show (across the street)

Spectacular Sunday Line-up – I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure, this is the best place in the city. If you want to drop Jameison's into half-pints of guinness of a Sunday afternoon, you will not find a more accomodating or off-radar venue to do so. The staff is fantastic, friendly and willing. The throw-back yacht-club nautical decor, i.e. what Pirates thought the future might look like in 1658 as interpreted by a hotel decorator in 1978, more than makes up for the marginal inconvenience caused by the key-card access to the bathrooms in the adjacent Hotel Edison. The Rum House is exactly as it should be: a tabernacle to the waterfront drink house, but shanghai'd between The Barrymore and Times Square. {As an aside, The Hotel Edison is the hotel in Seinfeld where George gets handcuffed to the bed and robbed on his way to a job interview.}

Rum House is retro fun – I went to The Rum House with some friends and can only describe it as a Retro maritime-themed piano bar and cocktail lounge. The interior looks like the inside of a ship's galley.

It is a a mix of tourists, regulars and Broadway theatre actors just out of a show. The piano player, the bartender, several tourists and a few Broadway singers sang show tunes and torch songs. The drinks were defintely flowing and everyone was having a great time including the staff.

The service was great even though, it was pretty busy. I had a martini, and others followed in suit..I have to say the martinis and cosmos there are great, and so is the manhattan.

I would recommend the Rum House if you are looking for a fun night out where you will definitely have a great time and meet some fun, nice and interesting people. - M
