Times Square Bar

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Carmen on May 8, 2002

My friend and I had gone to New York, NY hotel to try and ride the roller coaster (whose cars are painted to look like yellow cabs)-- but to our dismay, it was closed. We were tired and hungry -- it being 1 a.m. at this point, so we got a slice of New York pizza and grabed a table to watch people go by. I kept hearing this music that made me want to hum. After we had finished eating and resting, I made it my purpose to find where this intoxicating music was coming from. My ears led me to the Times Square Bar.

Inside, the raucus grew louder. You see, this was a dueling piano bar, and everyone -- I mean everyone -- was singing along to traditional piano bar tunes like Piano Man and Margaritaville, in addition to not-so traditional piano bar tunes like Def Leppard's Pour Some Sugar on Me. We didn't have to pay a cover, I'm assuming because it was so late and there wasn't a line outside. We were offered some bar stools by some drunk-yet-courteous young men, and joined in the fun.

This was the second best place I went in Vegas. It was fun, fun, fun! We closed the place down, which I believe was about 4 a.m. The pianists were really cool - they engaged the crowd and took requests. We left a big tip in the tip jar on our way out.
