First review
Pete's Dueling Piano Bar is a live music venue that features a two piano player rotation and significant audience participation. The songs are varied but primarily classic rock. When the show starts at 8:00, it’s nonstop music at that point, and it's played loud in a free spirited atmosphere. Audience members are invited to sing, dance or otherwise perform. The environment is fun but boisterous. The musicians are higher quality and entertaining.

Pete’s started in Austin in 1992 as a one-man piano show by Steve Green and was called Pete's Peanut Bar & Piano Emporium. The show evolved into its current format with additional piano players in 1998. There are four locations in Texas. Pete’s is in a nondescript brick building on Belt Line Road. There are two bars on either side of the room and a stage with the pianos in the middle. Tables were close together but there was more elbow room on the sides of the room. You have to guard your seat here or expect to lose it and then get to stand the rest of the night. Parking is tight on weekends; come early or valet will be your only option.

The music started promptly at 8:00 on a Saturday night and by 9:00 it was standing room only. Pete’s attracts a younger crowd. If you are carefree, like to sing and party, you will feel right at home. Song lyrics are periodically made more risqué, erotic dancing is a plus, women are encouraged to flash – it’s that kind of atmosphere. The time passed surprisingly quickly and the mood was festive. As for the drinks, a Cosmopolitan, Hurricane and Pete’s Margarita all fell short on quality and the Margarita was ordered with top shelf Patron Silver. They were drinkable but that’s about it. A lady nearby was eating a veggie pizza and gave it a 10/10. When challenged, she was steadfast and offered to share it with any doubters. Pete’s can definitely fit the bill when you feel like partying. On the right night, with the right group of friends, this place can deliver a very memorable evening.

It was entertaining, everything but the entertainment is average. The 10 dollarcover charge was excessive.
