Dueling Piano Bar

Have Some Musical Fun at Bobby McKey’s Dueling Piano Bar

​At Bobby McKey’s Dueling Piano Bar in the National Harbor, two piano players take your song requests and turn them into some of the best live entertainment you’ll find. 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. Hilarious jokes are also made in between songs, making the night that much more enjoyable.

In order to hear a song you like, submit your request via the napkins on your table — including a tip increases the likelihood your song is played. From Whitney Houston to Dolly Parton and Taylor Swift to Eminem, there is something for everyone’s musical taste. Bobby McKey’s also offers a full bar and food menu, so you can enjoy a few cocktails and an appetizer while you watch the show. Shows are held Monday through Saturday nights, and tickets start at $5 with advanced reservations required.
