In recent years, a lot of the cooler bookings have moved from Pianos to Brooklyn or down the block to venues such as Cake Shop. Still, while sound is often lousy and the room can get uncomfortably mobbed, there are always good reasons to go back—very often the under-the-radar emerging rock bands that make local music scenes tick.

There are a lot of great music venues in New York. While this is not one, it does have some serious positives. Their happy hour is out of control. The $5 frozen margaritas have plenty of kick to them, and the whole food menu is $2 off. It may just be the margs talking, but it's pretty delicious. 


Pianos is a great place to start off an LES evening and an easy way to turn 'casual weeknight drinks with the girls' into 'blacking out on Tuesday'. Plus, it's a clean enough establishment to get your flu shot in the bathroom. True story.
