Phoenix New Times' Description

Located below Gringo Star, the Big Bang touts itself as "an underground dueling piano bar." Patrons provide as much entertainment as the pianists, getting onstage to dance and sing along. A high level of audience participation, combined with the pianists' campy humor, creates the aura of a cheesy lounge high on nitrous oxide, seven nights a week.

    One of the few places on Mill that charges a cover, but it's worth it! Always packed on a weekend night and always lively with incredibly talented musicians. If you hope to sit near the stage, get there early (around 8). Great place to bring a friend for their birthday; birthday people are pulled on stage and fully embarrassed. It's a great time at the Bang!

    Two words. Dueling pianos. That’s right, dueling pianos hammering out all your favorite songs. So grab a drink, invite a friend, and get ready to sing along!

    Have Clavajo play Whitney Houston. Trust me.

  • Sing-a-long piano bar! You must sing at least 3 80s songs, and dance on the stage!

    make sure to get there before 8 so you can get a seat
