Experience Columbus hits The Big Bang’s newest location

This past weekend a few of the Experience Columbus crew hit the new piano bar, The Big Bang . We had one rockin’ time!

Located under Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant in the Arena District , dueling piano players sit opposite each other and play old school favorites that you can’t help but sing out loud.

If you are looking for a high-energy hang out, this is the place to go. Tip: You should get there early – the night we went it was packed by 11 p.m. and we spotted a line at the door.

Here are the impressions our group had about the night:

Meg Gordon : When I heard that Big Bang was opening in Columbus, I was super pumped and my expectations were high. I was not disappointed! I think it’s nearly impossible to go to The Big Bang and not have a good time. I mean, what could be better than belting out some of your favorite tunes with your friends?

Melissa DeGraw : I liked that we got there before a cover started and the drinks were not that expensive. It’s a fun place to hang with your friends and relax with some great entertainment to boot!

Kate Kastenholz : I think The Big Bang is a home run. There was so much energy and I was amazed that the performers were able to rotate and play each instrument!

Brenda Carter: I loved the music and group participation, and that the price of drinks was reasonable.

Kelly Brooks : My favorite thing about The Big Bang is that it has a little something for everyone. Whether you want grab a few drinks, enjoy some live entertainment or spend a night people watching, you can do it here. But make sure you arrive early if you want to grab a table – it fills up quickly!

Since it’s new, we know only some of Columbus has had the chance to experience The Big Bang. Have you? How was it?

    I went to the Big Bang this weekend and it was AWESOME!

    The clientele and atmosphere was fun-loving and social; everyone threw their arms around each other’s shoulders and sang to their favorite tunes. The piano players played everything from Dr. Dre to “Sittin’ On the Dock in the Bay”, and all the while my friends and I enjoyed affordable drinks and free people watching.

    I actually met some FRIENDS there, which is unusual given the meat-market nature of most night-life venues. How cool is a place where you can just talk to people and bond over your lyrics mastery? It’s the fun of karaoke without the pressure of being the spotlight or the need to dress to impress.
