Piano Works West End: SingEasy Review

Here at ONIN.London we’ve had the pleasure of visiting both Piano Works West End and Piano Works Farrington, but this was the first time we had the pleasure of visiting Piano Works West End’s SingEasy. We were grateful to Piano Works for allowing our group of 4 to spend an evening singing and dancing the night away… not to mention drinking and enjoying the fabulous new menu.

What is the SingEasy? Well it’s London’s number one sing-along party and dining experience where you and your friends become part of the performance. Inspired by two of New York’s legendary sing-along institutions, Ellen’s Stardust Diner and Marie’s Crisis Café, SingEasy is where speakeasy meets The Piano Works. The venue within a venue, provides a more intimate experience where guests request the songs they not only want to hear, but that they want to sing-along to!

Guests can expect a different theme each night with Mondays being a Musical Theatre Takeover with your favourite West End stars, Tuesday SingEasy Goes Drag and Wednesday SingEasy Goes to the Movies with sing-along films from Grease to The Greatest Showman. Live music that you can sing-along continues until 1am and from Thursday to Saturday the originalSingEasy Experience will have you up on your feet with a mashup of different styles, from 5pm until 1am followed by a DJ until 3am.

Now we’ve got the formalities out of the way, let us tell you about our experience. We were welcomed with glasses of champagne and the concept of SingEasy was explained to us by our waiter Charlie. We didn’t think we’d have the courage to get up and sing on stage with the talented wait staff and performers but we gave enthusiastic performances in our seats.

For dinner we each chose a few options. I went for the Soup Of The Day (a delicious Pumpkin Soup), my friends chose the Grilled Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce and the Caesar salad. They were envious of my soup as it was very tasty but I quite enjoyed the small bite of asparagus I had… I am a sucker for Hollandaise sauce though.

For mains, my friends all chose the Fish and Chips, but I went with 200g Hanger Steak with peppercorn steak. The food was very filling and especially with the extra Sweet Potato Fries, so we did struggle with desserts.

Given that the Dine and dance with a two-course pre-theatre menu is from only £15 per person or the two-course dinner menu from only £21 per person. Plus you can add bottomless prosecco for an additional £20pp to your order… It’s a pretty good deal.

We had a great evening with favourite songs of the evening being”Bang Bang” by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, Africa by Toto and the many Disney classics. It was super fun and we all left in high spirits. I’m sure that had nothing to do with the Prosecco which seemed to flow as only two of us were drinking.

Book your table for dinner or drinks the next time you’re looking for fun afternoon or evening out. You’ll have a wonderful time and we’re already wondering whether we could have our Christmas party here.
