It has been ten years since the legendary dueling piano bar Howl at the Moon closed its doors in the city where it got its start, leaving the Greater Cincinnati area without one of these popular entertainment concepts.
On November 13, 2009 this all changed when Gangsters Dueling Piano Bar opened in Newport next to The Newport Syndicate.
Gangsters offers a different twist by way of the dueling piano bar concept by featuring a black and white piano as the central focal point on a elevated stage with a dance floor while overlooking the bar & restaurant. Gangsters features bartenders and servers alike who can serve you up your favorite cocktail as well as dinner while singing and dancing with you during your visit.
Our dueling piano bar has already been a big hit with bridal, bachelorette and birthday parties where guests are offered specialty drink buckets, signature cocktails and are invited to the stage to sing and dance.
With a 200 person capacity, drink specials, food served late into the night, no cover charge, and top-notch pianists who make the commute to Newport from all over the country Gangsters has proved to be the #1 dueling piano bar in the tristate area.
"In order to be a piano bar player you have to be a little crazy and know a lot of songs
