What can you tell me about NYC Sweet Carolines Dueling Piano Bar?
I am looking for something to do on our 2nd night in the city with our 23 and 21 yr. old sons. The 1st night we are going to theatre. We all love music and they love and appreciate our generation's music. (We are going to see HAIR after all).

Usually by looking at a website I can get a good idea and feel for the place but I can't seem to figure out if Sweet Carolines is mostly for Bachelor/Bachelorette parties, a bar, or a music club.They have on their site an event form the beginning of April which of course is outdated. I don't see a calendar with listings of what is happening upcoming.

Have you been there? What can I expect? Thanks very much.

I've not been so can't say but I know families really like Cafe Wha in the village. Since you're going to a show night 1, the village would be a nice change of pace. Eat dinner down there too.

mclaurie; thanks, this is a fantastic suggestion; what a history of the club! I just forwarded the link to my sons.

One of my dearest friends travels the country playing in dueling piano bars and they are an absolute blast.

If you go I can promise you it will be some of the most fun you've ever had.

Absolutely go to Sweet Carolines.

GoTravel, Anything else you can tell me about Sweet Carolines in NY, such as do you go there for the sing a long and a good, fun time or is the music in its own right excellent?
