Following the success of Piano Bar’s new pop-up experience, Piano Bar Shipped, in Werribee and Barwon Heads earlier this year, the team have decided to re-stock the container bar and set themselves up in Melbourne this month, bringing along the unparalleled atmosphere and entertainment that only Geelong’s piano bar delivers.
Armed with their trusty renovated shipping container and a sizable marquee, you can expect to see all the things Geelong have come to love about their glorious nights at Piano Bar – the dance floor, the drinks, the food, drags, magicians, vocalists, piano performances, and a number of special guest artists.
As part of the pop-up, Piano Bar is running their famed drag extravaganza ‘Pitch Please!’ on Saturday nights in celebration of RuPual’s Drag Race Down Under, which featured Piano Bar’s very own resident Queen, Art Simone. These exclusive events will feature free screenings of the latest drag race, alongside special drag shows from Art and special guests, music all night from the fabulous Piano Man, and an opportunity to meet the queens.
While Art Simone sashayed away from the series in the second elimination, the Stan series is finally giving Aussie drag the recognition it deserves and that’s definitely something to celebrate.
Alongside the Pitch Please! events, ‘A Taste of Piano Bar’ will take over Friday nights, complete with four hours of live entertainment from their stellar pianists, vocalists and pop up drag shows from one of their superstar drag queens, as well as special events The Songs Of Matchbox 20 on May 23, Bitches with Balls – Drag Bingo on May 27, Kate Daley (singing the songs of Fleetwood Mac) on June 6, and the Good Faces 4 Radio team bringing their much loved tribute to ‘The Music of Bon Jovi’ show to guests on June 13.
Bringing their very own flavour of entertainment to the big smoke, this endeavour follows Piano Bar’s most recent venture back to Little Malop Street, where it originally opened in 2015.
