Aging Broadway queens, wide-eyed out-of-town youngsters, giggly tourists and various other fans of musical theater assemble around the piano here and take turns belting out campy show tunes, often joined by the entire crowd – and the occasional celebrity. It’s old-school fun, no matter how jaded you might be when you go in.

Photography is allowed (no flash!) but taking videos is forbidden. Make sure to tip your pianist when you go!
