Bobby McKey’s Dueling Piano Bar: Enjoy a Different Kind of Entertainment

If you want to do something a little different for your next night out, make a reservation at Bobby McKey’s Dueling Piano Bar. Monday through Saturday night, pianists put on an upbeat show for rowdy crowds. Seated at a pair of pianos on stage, the musicians take requests from the audience and go back and forth attempting to best their “opponent.”

Submit requests via the napkins on your table for favorite songs by Ke$ha, Mozart, and every musician in between. The pianists know them all. Some nights, a four-piece band joins them onstage to serve as backup. Bobby McKey’s offers a full bar and food menu, too, so you can enjoy a few cocktails and an appetizer or burger while you watch the show unfold. Tickets start at $5 and advanced reservations are required.
