Sid Gold’s Request Room is a beautiful venue with an amazing staff! They have a bar up front and a Cabaret Room in the back. The room is lovely and seats up to about 60 with 12 of those seats around the baby grand. It reminded this reviewer of  Arthur’s, a group friendly, neighborhood place to pop in to share a drink and maybe sing a song or two!

All Covid precautions are in place. They have an impressive line up of LIVE Piano Bar Karaoke shows and musical directors. This just means that each of their very impressive pianist have their own books that you choose a tune from (by scanning the link on your phone) and then you sing with them LIVE! It is a supportive room and welcoming to singers of all levels. They encourage new singers to come in to try a tune and seasoned singers to come in to practice or to try out some new tunes. It’s fun people! Good old fashion piano bar/karaoke F-U-N.

They also book 1 hour solo Cabaret style shows on Wednesdays only. They allow you to take care of your ticketing or you can have someone at the door to collect the cover charge but you keep 100% of the door. They just require a two drink minimum and they now serve food. The sound is also pretty great!
