Sing Sing is a dueling piano bar located in the waterfront of Pittsburgh. Located adjacent to Rock Bottom Brewery (they share the same microbrewed beer), it's hard to find...but worth the trouble. Piano guy number 1...Karl. The witty guy who can play the everything, the drums, the sax, the piano...and who never fails to make you laugh so hard that your stomache hurts. He says what he wants, blantant, brutally honest, possibly insulting, but always funny. Piano guy number 2...Danny. The tall drink of water who combines charm and some unbelievable musical knowledge. This guy knows it all....The Frey, The Killers, Eminem, Outkast, OAR, Ben Folds, Sir-Mix-Alot. He makes all of the new stuff sound better, and the old stuff sound just like it should. Piano guy number 3...Joey. Joey is the voice and the old school Pittsburgh guy. He's Italian, wears converse, with a shaggy head of black won't believe the power that comes out of this guy's mouth. Think Steve Perry of Journey could sing? This guy does it just as good if not better, and brings the house down when he channels Axl Rose in November Rain.

The waitstaff gets up and dances on the pianos three times throughout the night, proving that the have the same great sense of humor that the players do, and one of them even belts out Proud Mary. The bartenders get your drinks out fast, with ease and somehow always remember what you drink...making you feel like its not just any bar, it could be your bar. All in all, I've haven't Sing Sing left without feeling as though I had one of the nights with old friends that you never want to end. Good people, good laughs, great music. It's the best place to go out in Pittsburgh, don't miss it.

Dress Code: Dress is causal, but don't be mistaken, some of the girls go all out, after all it is the bachelorette party capital of Pittsburgh.
