We had absolutely amazing night. It was my fiancé's 30th Birthday, and we had memorable time. Music was breathtaking, lovely food and drinks, and friendly staff. We will definitely come again! visited Piano Kensington on 26 Mar 2017

It's the real thing. Jazz the performers care about. Audience variable, lots of loud shouty conversations, but staff indulgent. visited Piano Kensington on 19 Mar 2017

Due to the bad acoustics in this bar, the music was far too loud and harsh sounding. Choice of material was predictable and not very interesting. Overall, the bar had a soulless feeling, lacking in warmth. The white walls and small framed photographs did not help. Not a good environment for jazz or even chatting with friends.

Serving fingerfoods took a while and time frame was not extendable. 5 min before the end of our reservation, we were kindly asked to leave. So if you like the place, you can't stay. visited Piano Kensington on 11 Mar 2017

Great vibe and absolutely love the live piano performance. Piano gets extremely crowded. tables need to be booked way ahead in advance and even then you may get kicked off! Best thing to do is get in early @ 6pm find a spot by the piano or standing area on the left and camp there! We had 10 people and were able to squish in. Staff members try their best to accommodate but be warned this place gets hell busy so expect to be waiting around for a while... over all if you can cope with this you'll have a fab time as the music is fantastic and drinks are reasonably priced. They also do food! We ordered truffle infused chips, chicken skewers and arancini balls. Did see some people order cheese and charcuterie platters too! visited Piano Kensington on 18 Feb 2017

A highly enjoyable evening! Lovely atmosphere - the gentleman on the door for the most part of the evening needs a medal! He was constantly on the ball making sure everyone in the bar had a good evening and that any niggles were nipped in the bud, excellent work - made for a very safe environment and evening for all to enjoy. The gentleman on the piano was excellent. Highly entertaining, played none stop and kept everyone in a boyant spirit. Food was good but perhaps larger portions would have been more appropriate? but what we had did taste good. Thank you. visited Piano Kensington on 11 Feb 2017

We went on saturday for an early valentines day celebration. We had fun singing and dancing along in the first 30mins but it was soon spoiled by a group of girls that bumped our table while dancing in the narrow space between the tables - our cocktail glasses were tripped over and we were covered in cocktails. We were all so sticky and stinking of cocktail after that and could not stay on to enjoy the night. Considering the venue is very cosy, i think perhaps ppl should be reminded not to dance in the narrow space and risk causing this sort of accident which i can easily see happening a lot! It was such a shame we had to leave because of this, the rest of the night was spent washing off our clothes that we could wash, and the rest of course had to be dry cleaned which makes the half an hour at the bar very expensive now! visited Piano Kensington on 11 Feb 2017

Great location but not quite as expected. We arrived for pre-dinner drinks and the place was draughty and more of a University bar than Jazz bar. Table that I reserved several weeks before for special birthday was too close to Piano and when we questioned this,and asked to move to one of the several empty tables, this was not possible. Not impressed Piano Kensington, definitely will not be returning. visited Piano Kensington on 10 Feb 2017

I frequently use this bar, even make special journeys for the great night out. Very talented pianists who get the croud eating out of Thierry hands and all singing along. The staff are very attentive whilst being extremely busy. Highly recommended! visited Piano Kensington on 10 Feb 2017

Not what we expected at all! Very basic place , no atmosphere and we could barely hear the music due to all the people talking so loud! We only stayed for half an hour which is very unlike us and a sign that we didn't enjoy it at all! Had a headache from all that noise! christinalimberi visited Piano Kensington on 09 Feb 2017

Had so much fun, great night, the pianist was fantastic and it was a great atmosphere! Only thing is that it gets very busy by the Piano, very cramped, but there's plenty of space by the bar if you don't like the crowd! Brilliant night overall!! visited Piano Kensington on 28 Jan 2017

I've been to the piano bar Kensington a few times and always enjoyed it. The pianist was excellent, the music was great and the staff were attentive. However, there were so many people there that I couldn't enjoy it properly. None of us could. Even going to the bar or the toilet was an effort. I think there should be a quota of how many people should be allowed in at any one time. Other than that, it was a great night, as always. visited Piano Kensington on 21 Jan 2017

this is a really nice piano bar on Kensington High Street opposite the station. On our last visit early January we arrived at about 6.15 pm and live piano music was being played, lovely music and friendly atmosphere. You can have wines and spirits, I like it because they serve champagne in small bottles with your own ice bucket - the service is first rate, friendly but not intrusive. Highly recommend and you can order nibbles to eat too. visited Piano Kensington on 04 Jan 2017
