Real simple to review. The place is vacant. Only found out after paying $7.00 to park then walking 3 minutes to see the building up for sell.

Have been to this bar multiple times over the years while my daughter attended college in St. Louis. It is my favorite bar/entertainment for the evening. Piano players are awesome, fun and just downright talented. Never heard a song requested that they could not only play but play well. They are great at reving up the crowd. Small dance floor...

Dualing Pianos! Cold beverages & small food menu. Security is always in sight and if someone gets out-of-hand, they do not hesitate to usher them to the door. Great music, comedy and atmosphere.

Never having been to a dualing piano bar before I wasn't sure what to expect. There was a $6 cover charge on a Saturday night but I didn't feel that was bad especially for the show we got. I was blown out of the water at how good these performers are and how many songs they knew! Staff/bartenders were excellent... More

Very cool although music is somewhat annoying after a few hours it is very entreating. I would bring my grandparents to this place pretty fun.

This piano bar is an awesome place to have some drinks and kick back with friends. There were two dueling pianists and a drummer. The musicians were good and were open to audience requests. The bar is usually pretty packed, so you may have to stand if you arrive later in the night.

My wife and I were out with a group of friends celebrating a pair of birthdays. After dinner at The Drunken Fish (see my review!), we walked up the block for our reservation at The Big Bang! We got there early, and the place was nearly empty. We took our seats at our reserved tables and immediately had drinks in... More

There were two sets of musicians and they switched out throughout the night. The two youngish guys were great. I've been to several piano bars and they have always been entertaining, and these two were in that same caliber. The other two- a girl and an older man- were not very entertaining at all. She was trying, but it just... More

In town for a Rams game and went to the Big Bang for a night of entertainment. Entertainment it was! GREAT MUSIC, drinks and fun, in a great location in Laclede's Landing! We enjoyed ourselves and although we had only planned to stay for an hour or so, we stayed the entire night. Definitely a must-do in St.Louis!
