Sidle Up To The Piano At This Bar And Belt Out Some Tunes
Dine on Filipino food before singing your heart out at a good old fashioned piano bar. Bilao on the Upper East Side is the perfect place to go when you're craving authentic Filipino cuisine. They have all the classic, comforting flavors, from crispy lechon to pansit, which is noodles sautéed with shrimp, chicken, sweet sausage, veggies, and a special sauce. Be sure to start your meal with either their pork or veggie lumpiang.
Next, head to Brandy’s Piano Bar, a 35-year-running saloon with a vintage vibe and a lively atmosphere, where performers take the stage every night and patrons are known to sing along. Visually, this place is hardly reinventing the wheel when it comes to tavern layouts and design, but the real charm here is in the social ambience. So cozy up with your S.O., knock back a few drinks, and maybe even join in if you know the words.
