Fun place to have a drink.

The Grove Park is really crowded these days, but having a drink in the grand lobby still is a treat. We sat at the bar and enjoyed our cocktails prepared by cheerful bar staff.

The performers at Elaine's Dueling Piano Bar were loud and obnoxious. We've been to many dueling piano bars and this was not entertainment. The dozen guests sat far away from the piano players because the singing and playing were ear bursting! The saving grace was an adorable server. By now we were near the bar and away from the noise.... More

I was really looking forward to this show. Having been to a phenomenal dueling pianos show years ago in Savannah, it's been hard to find another where they're actually playing pianos - and not synthesizer keyboards. So, when I read about this place I actually called to ask if they played "real" pianos, and much to my delight, the concierge... More

We were terribly disappointed in this fine hotel to be treated as if we were in a cheap honky-tonk bar where the servers sneak in added charges, but it happened in Elaine's! The music can be deafening from the talented piano duo, whose skills are almost hidden by the strong amplifiers! But what made the visit so upsetting is that... More

We went here to celebrate New Years and it was one of the best times we have had. These two guys are crowd pleasers for sure. Funny and entertaining, they kept you engaged all night. The place was busy all night. Drink prices are a bit high but you can't complain when you can enjoy the entertainment with no cover... More

we went this past Thursday night with another couple and had a fantastic time. It was way better than I thought it would ever be and what energy! They really kept the crowd entertained. Going back real soon with a bigger group of friends.

The show starts at 9pm . The piano players are very talented. I was amazed at all the songs they could play. Anything the audience could come up with they could play. The show has a lot of audience participation which makes it a lot fun for everyone. Lots of fun!

Our friends brought us here after dinner at the Grove Park. It was great fun. Two piano players that take request. Also quite funny.

We came here after eating dinner at the Terrace restaurant at the Grove park. We were really surprised at how awesome this place is! The piano players really did a great job entertaining the audience and playing songs from so many different eras, plus they're super funny. We have lived in Asheville for 3 years and didn't know about Elaine's... More

Be warned, this is only for old people! The pianists only played oldies music all night long. When we requested a song that had actually been written in the past 20 years (and yes, tipped the guy as well), the pianist was very rude and refused to play the song. We were really miserable. The oldies enjoyed it though. The... More
