Add a Little Class to Your Day With a Piano Bar

Add a Little Class to Your Day With a Piano Bar

If you are a big fan of having the occasional night on the town, and also enjoy piano music, then have you considered having a night of both? Of course, you could attend a concert in a concert hall, and then go out on the town for a few drinks (and then party into the night if you are so inclined…)… but there is a much more interesting option – a piano bar.

Piano Bars

Back in the 1920s, piano bars were all the rage. Whether it was an underground speakeasy with a jazz pianist in the corner, or a more up-market establishment with a pianist on a grand piano in the middle of the room, piano bars were a popular phenomenon.

Due to the growth in technology, pianists were gradually replaced by radios, DJs, and iTunes playlists. At the turn of the twentieth century, only the establishments for the elite still had pianists providing the background music. These were the fanciest bars in London and Paris where you wouldn’t be allowed in unless you had a Coutts bank account and at least £50,000 of diamonds around your neck.

Piano Bar

Today, piano bars are having a comeback. There is probably at least one in at least every major city, and they aren’t necessarily just for the elite. Of course, there are some more exclusive members only piano bars such as The Piano Bar in Soho London, but there are also much more accessible options to the masses. The Victoria and Albert Museum in Kensington, London have a beautiful canteen and dining area where there is a grand piano. This piano is often being played by talented pianists to provide music which will take you back a century or two, like a kind of time machine! All you need to experience this beautiful concept of live piano background music is buy yourself a drink and find a seat.

Turn Your Front Room into a Piano Bar

If you dabble in piano playing yourself (or if you are a seasoned professional) then it wouldn’t take much to turn your own front room into a piano bar. All you need to do is invest in a piano and a bottle of gin, and then invite some friends round. Should you need a piano for such an occasion then start your search at Chase Direct.
