Other clubs, such as the Continental Club and Pub Fiction, can be included or substituted as one can make requests in the immediate area. For dueling pianos, we can take you to Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar and or Howl at the Moon. Several of these places will only have live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
