Boogie on down to the Boogie Piano Bar

The ‘crazy piano’ phenomena is coming to Manchester...

The ‘crazy piano’ phenomena is coming to Manchester for the first time with the launch of The Boogie Piano Bar.

Party-goers throughout the globe have taken to the new-style piano bars for a good sing-song to the latest tunes, as well as classic tracks, and now Britain’s second city will have its first crazy piano venue.

“…you have live music and can enjoy a crazy sing-along… it’s not what people think of from a stuffy old school piano venue.”

Inspiral Carpet’s Clint Boon and celebrity make-up artist Armand, were among the guests at the Boogie Piano Bar in Atkinson Road, Urmston, for the VIP opening on Friday, December 2 with a special performance from pianist Tom Lannon.

The brainchild of entrepreneur and restaurateur Joe Abid, the new piano bar is the latest addition to his Urmston venues which include the Boogie Lounge, also refurbished.

With a £160K investment, The Piano Boogie Bar is open seven days a week with live music on Fridays and Saturdays when it is open until 2pm and has capacity for 200 revellers with sumptuous booth seating.

It will be offering cocktails, house wines and fizz and will be serving tapas style snacks as well as a bar menu with burgers, nachos and other bar meals from £6.95. It will also be serving a full Sunday lunch.

“I got the idea from travelling when I saw how popular crazy piano bars are and it’s amazing we don’t have one in Manchester,” said Joe.

“It’s a really great night out because you have live music and can enjoy a crazy sing-along, but it’s not what people think of from a stuffy old school piano venue.”

It will be available for private parties including children’s and will also be screening key sporting events as well as live music.

What’s more, everyone who comes to the Boogie Piano Bar and spends over £20 will also get £5 towards their cab fare home.
