There’s just one rule at Crazy Pianos: there are no rules! Whether you’re young or old, looking to have a night on the town or a low-key after-dinner nightcap, you can be as rowdy or as chill as you like at this laid-back piano bar.
Miami Beach may be notorious for having swanky nightclubs for the young and elite, but Crazy Pianos sheds all those barriers and invites anyone and everyone to come in and have a good time.
Inside Crazy Pianos
What’s the main attraction to this southern hotspot? Great live music every night of the week.
And trust me—we’re not talking stuffy karaoke-type crooners here. These are fantastic entertainers who play instruments and belt out fun tunes that make everyone want to get up and move.
While sharing a few cocktails with friends, I chatted with the bartender, who was very friendly and personable. When I asked how they keep the place so packed, he explained that Crazy Pianos keeps the quality high by always having a complete band at the helm, including two pianists and a drummer.
On the Menu
With all the singing and dancing you’ll be doing, you’ll likely get hungry and thirsty in no time.
Crazy Pianos has a full menu with everything from pasta and seafood to vegetarian options. I noshed on their Mahi Mahi Ceviche Shooters, which were made with fresh mahi mahi, a local ocean catch, key-lime juice, peppers, corn and red onions. Delish!
I was also tempted to order the lobster ravioli, kobe beef sliders or their signature ahi tuna tini, but restrained myself—this time.
While Crazy Pianos offers a wide range of mixed drinks and beers at reasonable prices, we opted for a couple of rum and Cokes (there’s bottle service too).
Ditch the Nightclubs
Crazy Pianos’ décor is bright and whimsical, with vibrant red pianos and splashy wall murals of celebs. It’s precisely this kind of relaxed, fun vibe that sets this piano bar apart from the ultra-posh lounges in the neighbourhood that are stuffed with glass and chrome.
The outdoor patio is particularly relaxing on a warm Miami evening, too.
So have a drink, go for a meal, and get your requests ready—there are lots of stations stocked with paper and pencils to give the musicians your favourite ditties.
I was too busy catching up with old friends to get my request in. But the next time I'm in town, you can bet I'm heading to Crazy Pianos and requesting Sweet Caroline. It's the best sing-along song I know!
