Picture of Piano, Kensington, London

Piano, Kensington (Bar / Restaurant)
“I went to the Piano bar on a Saturday night for a first date. I definitely made a wise choice. It was a bit tricky to find – just a single door between Mc D and the Vodafone shop on Kensington High St, and upstairs, not downstairs or beneath a pasta bar as I had been led to believe. Once inside (about 7.30pm) there were just a handful of tables, all of which were reserved. Fortunately for me I had booked one of them. Baz Norton had just finished a session, and was taking a break. Having sat down and been told by the waitress she would be right back, we waited at least 10 minutes before I decided to go and get the drinks myself. Not a great start to the evening. After I had complained about the wait, the service improved substantially, and we ordered some food. I had a steak sandwich which was ok, and my date had a salad which she told me was good. However, the food is not the main attraction, here. The menu is up-market from the average pub, and great if you are hungry, but this is not a restaurant. There was a good choice of wines at fair prices. The main attraction of the bar is Baz Norton playing his Piano and the atmosphere. And what an atmosphere! As the evening progressed many more people arrived, and the clientele ranged from 22 year old student types, to folks in the 55 + bracket. The wine flowed, and Baz played a range of music from Wonderful World, to crocodile rock and American Pie, occasionally ably assisted on vocals by one of the bar staff. For the first time in”
