Stopped here for a couple cocktails. Didn't have the first things I ordered which was a cocktail on the drink menu. There was no cover charge which was nice. The piano player was good and played good songs from several decades and genres.

Other than the bouncer who was not friendly to my party, the waitresses were very attentive. The piano player was pretty good and played all the songs we could think of for the 3 hours we spent there. Drinks were good but a bit pricey.

Maybe when visiting this place years past I was more in a party mode. It was a Monday night so......The place seemed outdated and in need of a overall cleaning.

Beware of the dress code and no tennis shoes! Very talented piano man plays songs from many genres and decades. Unless you stand in front though you don't see him. Minimal audience involvement except some who sing a long. Good server and good drinks.

One man and a keyboard - who would have thought we would stay for 4 hours!!! the first guy was great then there was a switch-over and a second guy came - should have aligned on playlist as we duplicated a lot for the first bit of the next set but still fantastic toe tapping, sing along music

Had a very nice time at this establishment. Very good beverages and outstanding service. Piano singalong was a fun time but if you're not into it, you can still have a wonderful time. No cover charge was a great surprise and probably made our decision to go here easier.

We had a great time at the piano bar! Such a talented pianist and vocalist, they take requests, but keep it upbeat. Lots of people singing along. A good time had by all.

While in town for my girlfriend's birthday (we're from northern Minnesota) we had finished dinner and were looking for somewhere to enjoy some drinks and a bit of Chicago life. I came across this bar on Google maps and not knowing anything about it, we decided to give it a go. What a great decision it was! The drinks were... More

Over the summer I attended a charity function where I won a gift certificate to Redhead Piano Bar. This past weekend I decided to use the certificate with a small group of friends. I could NOT get out of this place fast enough. A. The Shoes. We were nearly turned away at the door because of our male companion's footwear.... More
