With downtown Tuscaloosa being revamped, Brown’s Corner Dueling Piano Bar and Grill is open and ready for business.
Keith and Heath Wyatt, former owners of Steamer’s Restaurant for 13 years and now co-owners of the new bar, have presented Tuscaloosa with a unique twist to a bar, bringing something fun and relaxing to the table.
The brothers fell in love with the concept after frequent trips to Rum Runners, a dueling piano bar in Sandestin, Fla.http://www.rumrunnersusa.com/
Their passion for the piano bar made them think Tuscaloosa needed something interactive like this, they said.
A typical dueling piano show consists of two pianists who play, sing and perform comedy. Songs are played upon request, either written on a napkin or piece of paper, along with a tip, Heath said.
“Brown’s Corner was the perfect location to start the piano bar,” Heath said. “It’s in the center of downtown Tuscaloosa on the corner of University Boulevard and Greensboro Avenue.”
The “dueling” is what makes the experience at the piano bar so unique. Each pianist will take the role of either the “good guy” or the “bad guy.” For example, when the good guy plays “Yea Alabama,” the bad guy will play Tennessee’s fight song, “Rocky Top.” This gets the crowd exhilarated and interactive, Heath Wyatt said.
The live music and the crowd singing along to the songs at the top of their lungs, keeps the energy up and the people coming. On Friday and Saturday there’s a cover around 10 p.m., anywhere from $3 to $5.
Ashlee McMillian, a junior majoring in nursing, went the dueling piano bar at Brown’s Corner for the first time and said she was in awe of the different energy the bar had.
“It was great because the bar gave off such a comfortable vibe, which made everyone seem to really let loose,” McMillian said. “I feel as though people of all ages would have a genuinely fun time.”
The piano bar attracts a very diverse crowd of all ages. Older clientele come for dinner, and then the college crowd comes strolling in for the show. The shows are Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Other than the unique entertainment, Brown’s Corner Dueling Piano Bar and Grill is also a full restaurant, with burgers, salads and sandwiches.
“One, Two, Three and a Half” is the name of their happy hour, which runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. The name comes from their specials: $1 beer, $2 well drinks, $3 wine and half-off appetizers.
Jesse Greener, a sophomore majoring in communications and public relations, said he has frequented the dueling piano bar at Brown’s Corner since their grand opening.
“The atmosphere is so unique with the pianos, no matter what your taste in music is, you will enjoy it,” Greener said. “Whatever you request they play, anything from Oldies to Snoop Dogg.”
Hi there from the Pacific Northwest.
