Sing-easy is the bar that musical theatre fans have been waiting for and now on Fridays and Saturdays Sing-easy will host musical theatre lates with a DJ till 3am!
Sing-easy is an intimate piano bar within The Piano Works in Leicester Square. Throughout the night the pianist takes song requests, and the waitresses take turns stepping up to sing. The set list is strictly musicals! The nature of this kind of show does mean that the quality of music will depend on the taste of your fellow audience members. Luckily, we were spoilt with a wide range of musicals from different eras.
The standard of performance is really high all of the singers are working professionals, and we were really blown away by the singing. A particular highlight was Take Me or Leave from Rent me sung by Eleanor and Sarah! Cecilia sung a beautiful rendition of By the Sea from Sweeney Todd. No request was off limits with the staff sometimes site reading music flawlessly and singing songs that were new to them.
The pre-theatre menu offers two courses for £20 per person. Considering this is alongside a show this is fantastic value for money. The food is good quality and presented beautifully.
The staff sing through to midnight and then a DJ accompanies the rest of the set list. Although this started with some more classical songs. The DJ took all of our requests and was even able to find our more obscure suggestions.
Sing-easy is a great night out for musical theatre fans. It would be an excellent place to host a birthday party. As the venue is smaller you are a lot more likely to get your requests played more frequently than at other theatre bars.
