Live Entertainment and Nightlife - Where do pianos fit in?

The piano was the center of home entertainment and nightlife, during the late 1890's into the 20th Century. In the early 1900's, pianos were everywhere. People would gather around, make music, sing, and celebrate and party with live music, in the theater and in bars or speakeasies.

At Piano Television, we decided to include Piano Bars as a sub-category of interest for their historical significance in carrying over from the past into the present the tradition of the piano serving as a hub and source for entertainment, bringing people together with live music.

Nightclubs, pubs, sports bars, breweries, gay bars, casinos are a popular destination for nightlife and social entertainment. They can be found in most major cities and locals - Los Angeles, Boston, New Your, Chicago, Charlotte, Denver, Baltimore, Atlanta, NC, New Jersey and many other metropolitan areas. They feature cocktail hours, where you can hear the Blues, Jazz, Pop and many other types of popular musical entertainment and the latest groups that perform on electronic keyboards and/or acoustic pianos.

A piano bar (also known as a piano lounge) consists of a piano or electronic keyboard played by a professional musician, located in a cocktail lounge, bar, hotel lobby, or office building lobby. Usually the pianist receives tips in a jar or basket on or near the piano, especially from patrons requesting a song. Some piano bars feature a baby grand or grand piano surrounded by stools for patrons. Others have a bar surrounding the piano or keyboard. Jimmy Durante started as a piano bar player, as did Billy Joel. His classic hit "Piano Man" is based on his experiences as a piano bar player.
