The Piano Works | Farringdon Live Music Bar
The Piano Works.
If you go there and give it a listen, you’ll agree.
Plus, you can also choose what the house band plays (for a small tip, of course) whilst you sip on your cocktail.
The open plan, bare brick walls of this vast, 400-capacity listed Victorian warehouse puts the musicians at centre stage as they play energetic renditions of whatever pop classics the paying customers want. And the list of cocktails is lively too.
The classics all come with an interesting (and frequently delicious) twist to liven up the show: the Old Fashioned with mint-infused sugar, the Porn Star Martini using vanilla vodka, and the Margarita boasts a spiced salt rim.
The food menu is also pretty pared down, with sharing platters of burger sliders and mini rolls (steak, crab, prawn, chilli, chicken or veggie) allow you to tackle your hunger whilst not getting too distracted from the head bobbing, hand clapping, and feet tapping that the band compels you to do.
Start thinking of those obscure cult pop songs you loved as a teenager.
The band might like a challenge.
NOTE: Bookings can be made online HERE. The Piano Works are also taking online bookings and enquiries for Christmas parties.
