Things to do

The dive bar culture that has taken NYC by storm is breaking into King’s Cross, in the form of the Megaro’s Piano Bar – London’s most audacious, underground dive bar.

From Soprano’s in Kensington, to Le’Tranger on Gloucester Rd., the music collective that has been blazing afterhours London nights now calls the Megaro’s Piano Bar their new, seductive home.

Every Thursday and Friday, a regular after work drink-up will be turned into a full-blown swinging booze-up as this piano led duo, with guest performances of guitars, keyboards, tambourines, and vocals, converts the speak-easy cocktail lounge into a ruffled, brassy dive bar.

Offering up their lively spin on a mix of classics, jazz & blues, 80s power ballads and modern hits, drinkers are encouraged to romp with the band around the famous glass-top grand piano and request twist-ups and mash-ups of their favourite hits, becoming completely immersed in the raw sounds of one of London’s greatest resident talents.

Playing from 7pm ’til late every Thursday and Friday, Londoners will be sure to find a new favourite in this vivacious jam session at the Megaro’s Piano Bar. Usher in your weekend with true New-York dive bar style.
