Downtown Gets Lucky With New Dueling Piano Bar
We are always scouting for new places to enjoy St. Louis’ nightlife and Washington Avenue is a good place to start. The Original Lucky’s Dueling Piano Bar, which opened last month, is helping Downtown’s nightlife come alive even more. We teamed up with Lucky’s and got an all-access view of their newly opened piano bar.

Great drinks, food, entertainment and atmosphere are all things to take into consideration when you’re choosing a place for a special graduation, birthday or bachelorette party. At Lucky’s you can definitely expect the traditional party atmosphere. Bachelor parties, birthdays and corporate events are three things they specialize in, so dancing girls, sing-a-longs and a packed house are all things to prepare for.
Washington Avenue, named one of the “10 Best Streets In America” by the American Planning Association, boasts a swath of trendy restaurants and stores. We suggest spending the day shopping and eating locally. Robust Wine Bar and Pi Pizzeria are both great places to grab a bite to eat before slipping into a bar like Lucky’s at night to start the party.
Lucky’s flies in entertainers from all over the U.S. and also grabs from the local talent pool. You can expect to hear the hits from local musician favorites like Ted Oliver and Johnny Fritts. When the dueling pianos take over the stage, have your song suggestions in hand. Requests are easily granted with their unique pulley system that feeds request sheets straight to the stage from their VIP balcony section.
When choosing a place for your special night, it’s important to investigate the bar situation. Luckily, Lucky’s boasts a full bar and regular drink specials. They also offer an entire list of package specials for groups like an open bar for $25, premium open bar for $35 and an array of appetizer options. We were happy to see that even on a busy night, service is speedy due to the two-bar setup. They also switch things up and throw in promotions like “no cover charge” nights.
