Create a live music "Duelling Piano Bar" in Northampton
This project seeks to bring a live entertainment venue with a difference to Northamptonshire! Duelling pianos, brass, violin, singing and drums!
In 2015, working for a marketing agency, I led a tour of bars and clubs in Chicago for members of Leisure, Hospitality, Food and Beverage industries. During the tour, I visited a bar that changed my view of the sector and has inspired this project.
The first bar was a live music piano dualling venue where the most talented musicians play song requests of any genre from the customers and perform them on stage. Seriously cool, and this is what the UK sorely needs.
The atmosphere this place created is awesome. The customers were also encouraged to get up on stage and dance, sing and join in, creating a party atmosphere second to none. Where would you find that in the UK? Please don't say London. The UK is a lot bigger than just London.
Like many others, I often gets frustrated by the poor quality of bars and clubs in the UK and in my home town of Northamptonshire, and I crave a destination where groups of friends can go to eat great food and feel welcome, enjoy high-end comfort and quality service affordably, then party until the early hours with real entertainment with real talent, not just DJ's playing Sean Paul over and over again.
If you share this same desire for a quality night out, then please donate now, and once the venue goes live, you will recieve lifetime benefits!
Imagine a late night licensed venue that plays all of your modern and classic floor fillers with artisan craft beer, specialist Whiskeys, Gins, frozen Vodka's and served in chilled glasswear by friendly and customer service oriented staff.
Imagine that you nominate the music to be played.
Now imagine the most unique nightlife experience in the country where the most versatile and talented musicians perform your requested songs from 80's Rock, 90's Pop, and today's Dance and Dub Step hits on pianos, guitars, and more in a high energy show. Honky Tonk, Brass, Umpapa, Jazz, Rock, Swing...this venue will do it all.
That's the evening. Now for the day time.
Imagine the highest quality, locally sourced home cooked food with a kick. This food is something to brag about. Huge Burgers with character, massive Steaks, jaw dropping Greek Salads, authentic Chilli Con Carne, family recipe soups, roasts with fresh vegetables and proper potato's, delicious vegetarian and vegan food, all provided at a genuinely great price!
This project also has a secondary aim. Support local talent, support local producers and create something different for Northampton. This is NOT about getting people so drunk that they create a negative impact on the town.
The house rules will be simple:
- Only bring friends who you would take to a grandparents house.
- Have fun, make memories, eat good food and have the odd drink in moderation
- If you misbehave once, you will never come in again. Ever.
- Dress to impress
This project is to raise funds to make this venue happen and bring life to Northampton!
If you want to make this happen, then please donate and receive life time benefits.

This project is owned by an experienced venue creator and operator whose specialism is Marketing Communications and Social Media marketing. The venue will be operated by an employed management team, not the owner.
