A great place. I booked a table for 20 guests and it wasn't a problem. Service was good, the music is amazing and everyone had a great time! Hkamburova visited Piano Kensington on 08 Oct 2016

Fabulous place to have a fun time. Great atmosphere and so close to the station. Loved the piano and the singing and dancing. Can't wait to go back. Highlight was sitting around the piano, having a drink and singing. Richenda visited Piano Kensington on 10 Sep 2016

Although the food was average - which didn't matter to me too much as I was more interested in your cocktail selection - an excellent evening was had. I'd love to be able to provide further feedback for you, but quite frankly i don't remember much other than the pianist was a true crowd pleaser - as was my guest, you may have noticed on the night. We will be returning in December for more merriment. Matt visited Piano Kensington on 02 Sep 2016

Went for my best friend's birthday. We had a night to remember thanks to The Piano Bar! The food and cocktails were EXCELLENT! Not ridiculously over-priced, or too stingy on the chips, and the staff could not have been more efficient or attentive. The piano man played some fabulous classics, which we could not help but get up and dance to. A chilled, classy night out with as much excitement and buzz as you want to create! Every staff member knows their stuff, and they genuinely want you to have a great evening. Thank you Piano Bar and Tom - the best bar tender in London!! I would highly recommend this quirky hide away... (make sure you book a table in advance if you want a seat.) X

We had an amazing night out! The guy playing on piano barely stopped all night, played some great songs with his own spin and took requests. Will definitely be back! Lauren visited Piano Kensington on 28 May 2016

The piano in Kensigngton is a fantastic night out. Talented musicians that take requests! Lovely friendly vibe. Great service. Small selection of snacks... Drinks and fun were flowing. Great for a date or group. Rebeccajohnsey visited Piano Kensington on 24 May 2016

It was my first time on Saturday night and I had an amazing time. I have taken away some amazing memories. I will most definitely be returning. Thank you so much. Becca Becca1972 visited Piano Kensington on 26 Mar 2016

Great atmosphere and music. I booked weeks in advance. On arrival our tables had been taken. Limited menu; run out of several items, were unable to feed all our vegetarians. 19sarah73 visited Piano Kensington on 30 Jan 2016

Great drinks and live music! Got the Piano Bellinis and really enjoyed them. The live music is great, we got there very early and didn't get to hear any of the 'music by request', but had a good time! pisicutzza02 visited Piano Kensington on 21 Jan 2016

The best fun. Had such a mad night here with friends. The only negative is that my legs throbbed from dancing and my voice disappeared from singing. The Bellinis are very good as well ( a little too good in fact !!) Lamby visited Piano Kensington on 20 Dec 2014

Fantastic fun evening. Great atmosphere and the pianist Nick was truly amazing. He ended up getting everyone singing and dancing along to a very well chosen set list. Highly recommended. loopylou visited Piano Kensington on 07 Oct 2015

After being invited to come down by the very talented Matt Ganim (Piano Man), we made it a girls night out. Despite being faced with a double-sided list of songs from the girls, Matt made us all feel very welcome, we were throughly entertained and had a great night!

Recently held a work’s cocktail night at Piano in Kensington and have to say it was a truly fantastic evening! The bar staff were lovely and very accommodating, we had 2 piano players who were both very entertaining (!), lots of drinking, dancing and great location! Would definitely recommend :-) 

Loved it. First visit, would love to return. Great atmosphere, very, very friendly people. We went on a Sunday and the snack menu exactly what we wanted, with great music.

This venue is sensational! Fun and relaxed with great music, talented entertainers and the best truffle fries in London :) It gets a bit crowded later in the night which makes it very hard to move, but if you have a table you're fine. I have been here several times, most recently with 14 international guests, all of whom are raving about how enjoyable it was...

What a great night out! First visit....definitely not the last! Great music...staff...food...customers! What more do you need! Plenty of dancing and singing! Best night out in ages! See you soon. Thank you so much! Nicola

I last went to Piano almost 4 years ago and always loved going. When I decided to celebrate my birthday there this year, it failed to disappoint. Everyone commented on how much fun they had. Music was great, crowd was a lot of fun and the drinks were flowing. Only slight criticism was that table service was a bit slow at the beginning of the night. Also it would have been good to have had more food platters on the menu for sharing. But I still give it 5 stars because it remains my all-time fave place on a Friday night.

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Only *slight* complaint was that the pianist didn't play Uptown Funk... hardly a big deal! Loved everything. Thanks so much for having us! Lots of friends will be coming back for sure

Lovely intimate atmosphere. Not too loud. Romantic but not OTT. Easy access to the tube also and v convenient location. Will Definteky return for a date night although I reckon it would be good for private hire also.

Very nice venue with good food and even better entertainment. Brilliant Jazz trio - Paul French and his band gave us a great evening with superb musicianship, Would definitely go again.

Brilliant Sunday evening jazz night. The service from friendly staff and great musicians who knew how to entertain made this a special night out for my wife and I. We want to come back again soon.

In short: No attention to the customer, crowded, pianaomusic was (due to the crowd) poor. If you look for a nice and cosy place don't go here. The amount of public allowed couses a very loud crowd, where even talking to your own partner or collegue is almost impossible. We left after 50 minutes and whre glad we where out. A disaster !
20 Dec 2014 by odydez

Really bad experience, there was nobody to great you or manage the bookings so we had to que for over 10 minutes at the bar just to find out which table had been reserved for us. We arrived at 7:20pm to find the venue completely over crowded as it had also been booked for a private function. The volume was so loud we couldn't even hear each other talk. During the early stages of the night we don't think it was unreasonable to expect to be able to have a quiet conversation over food rather than having to shout at each other whilst being continuously knocked into as the private function kept spilling in to our table. We ended up having to leave after 40 minutes, it was a really disappointing experience and embarrassing as we had asked friends to travel to join us.

Had a great night , food was tasty, the atmosphere was brilliant and the pianists just got everyone singing and dancing. Eric is a remarkable host and remembers names even after 2 years. would recommend this to anyone looking for a good night out.

Awesome as usual and as expected. Took my girlfriend there on Thursday night (the night we got together a year and a half ago) - the live piano music was exhilarating and set the great atmosphere and energy all around the place. By far, my favourite bottle of wine (which i only find at piano) served by the nicest and friendliest staff.

Never never have I failed to have a good night here at Piano bar. Arrive before 9pm or expect to queue, once inside its brimming, if you dont like tight spaces and being pushed past then this bar is not for you, but if you can get over that then you will never stop singing or smiling! The guy on the piano plays covers of all the best pop and sing-a-long tracks, every gets up and dances along, one of the best party bars in London for me. Just needs to be a bit bigger!
