Be very causes with this if you decide to go to this place!!! Bouncer is very provocative and highly unprofessional, he will try to find a reason to provoke you and possibly started a brawl that might turn into the physical fight. He is tall, muscular has dreads and wears hat.
Place it self is very cool, and it's a lot of fun! But it's not worth it! Most likely you will get humiliated, disrespected and maybe physically assaulted.
This place is fun and horrible at the same tine. If you are a regular and that usually means tipping well... then you can get in like a rock star. Also helps to know a bar tender or two. Money talks in NYC.
If you can get in don't sweat it... move on there are a million bars to have fun in and the people you are with are usually the party.
Have seen so many great performances here... get on a list... its easier than you think. Tip. You'll get a drink faster after you tip well the 1st time.
And - yes...
Sometimes there are so many bridge and tunnel types here you want to shoot yourself.
Pianos is fun almost any day of the week. Their food is delicious and drinks are cost effective. Pianos usually has multiple events going on at the same time on different floors (1st & 2nd) which gives you options each time you go. Their poured concrete bar is separated and very cool. Pianos music is eclectic and no dress code makes for a fun chill crowd. If you are in LES, you must drop by Pianos and make sure you are not missing out on a fun live event.
