Whether it’s raucous dueling pianos and outrageous fun, or elegant surroundings and quiet jazz, piano bars in the Puget Sound are a great way to let your hair down after a long day at work.

88 Keys Dueling Piano Restaurant and Bar

Seattle, WA 98104

There’s something different each night of the week at 88 Keys. Barbeque Blues on Mondays are served with a heaping helping of a Seattle style Blues Jam afterwards. Wednesdays you’ll find Deep Fried Rhythm and Blues followed by a Jazz and Blues Jam session. Thursdays you’ll see live bands or a Piano comedy show. Then on Fridays and Saturdays 88 Keys serves up Home Style Steamed Dueling Pianos spiced up with Beer Batter comedy. On Sundays, head over for a pre- or post-game party after the Seahawks play. The food is delicious pub fare – BLTs, spaghetti, wings and fries, burgers, and a whole menu of cocktails. Kids are welcome to enjoy the music if they are accompanied by an adult.

Open Thursday – Saturday, 6:00pm – 2:00am, Piano Bash is high octane fun combined with cold drinks and over-the-top entertainment from the best dueling piano show in America. You’ll be out of your seat and belting out new twists on old favorites. To complement the finger-licking bar food, the extensive beer selection is sure to “warm up” your vocal chords for a night to remember. A perfect place to let loose, Piano Bash is a place where embarrassing singing and audience interaction isn’t encouraged, it’s required.

John Howie Steak & Piano Bar

Bellevue, WA 98004

Chef/restaurateur John Howie serves up custom-aged USDA Prime steak, American Style Kobe and Japanese Waygu beef, as well as fresh seasonal fish, seafood and chops. The wine list features over 60 wines by the glass and more than 600 bottle selections. Enjoy classic and seasonal cocktails, or the world’s finest single-malt scotch and fine cognacs in the piano lounge. The piano lounge entertains nightly with live music performed by Gary Verrill and various guest performers.

Chopstix
2820 B Oakes Avenue
Everett, WA 98201

Chopstix is located in Everett. They are open Thursday through Saturday 5:00 pm – 2:00am, and Sundays from 4:00pm to 9:00pm. What’s most fun is when they have Dueling Pianos – two pianos on stage, playing your favorites together or in competition. You choose the winner. The piano players love requests, and can play the gammit – from Van Morrison to Coldplay, and much more. The menu is delish! They grill their steaks up just right, and the Kobe burger melts in your mouth. Want some comfort food? White truffle mac ‘n cheese sound good? There’s also a selection of entree worthy salads, and a huge selection of cocktails, beer and wine.

Vito’s is an iconic restaurant and lounge located on First Hill. Opened in 1953, it has a history rich in cocktail culture, and family-style Italian cuisine. Vito’s lounge offers live jazz, blues and lounge singers almost every night of the week. All of the entertainment is free, and with acts like Vito’s finds, it is always best to arrive on the early side. The lounge is open nightly from 4:00pm to 2:00am.
