Most DJs at nightclubs bristle at the prospect of granting requests, but The Piano Works makes music requests an essential part of the experience. The nightclub cum bar hybrid features non-stop live music that's completely selected by those in the audience, creating a more participatory dance floor.
Billing itself as "London's only non-stop live music venue," The Piano Works achieves that constant torrent of live requests thanks to two pianists who shift out over the course of the night. Those pianists are themselves accompanied by various musicians, including horns, drums, guitars, and vocals. The total experience approaches the intimacy of playing songs around a piano with one's close friends, but in a 400 person capacity space, such an experience is undoubtedly a surreal and eminently enjoyable one.
