One of the things I love about living in London is the endless choices of activities that you can do. Musical plays, comedy shows, themed restaurants, dining experiences, museums – it basically covers every single thing one might fancy doing on any given day. Unfortunately though since I’m now working again I have very limited time to enjoy these options which is why whenever I do get that precious weekends off, The Greek Mister and myself are always out and about enjoying what the city has to offer.
A few weeks ago we went to see a play on a Saturday night and then went to The Piano Works on a Sunday night. The play wasn’t that good and thankfully, The Piano Works was able to save that weekend for us.
The Piano Works is a bar/restaurant where a pianist performs songs requested by the audience. I don’t know about you but that sounds like my kind of place to spend a good weekend in. I had all the songs I was going to request ready (Bohemian Rhapsody? Lol) but then we didn’t realize that Sunday nights are Brazilian nights. Boo hoo! Not that I’m complaining as we still had a great time. The music was good and the salsa dancers were awesome to watch. If only The Greek Mister can dance.
Can I also say that it’s probably the cheapest bar/restaurant that I’ve ever been to here in London? 4 bottles of beer for £10 and £4.50 for a glass of mojito. If anyone knows a place which offers a cheaper price than that please do tell me because so far, this is the one to beat for me.
I loved their food as well although I only ordered picanha from their Brazilian menu so I’m not sure if I was just lucky to choose the right dish or they actually cook delicious food. Having said all that, I think this is my favorite date night venue in London so far. I’ll definitely go back and hopefully, I’d be able to go on a normal night with the pianist.
