Arriving from the lone star state is Rosemont’s newest night spot, Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar. This new bar is the chain’s only location outside of Texas. Located near the Fashion Outlets of Chicago and Donald Stephens Convention Center. Pete’s can be found in the Parkway Bank Park Entertainment District alongside the Sugar Factory, Hofbrauhaus Chicago, and Kings. Braving the cold, Jen and I hopped on the Blue line to sneak a peek at this place.
As we entered the bar, it was filled with laughter and music. It was obvious we’d be in for a good time. Two piano players allowed guests to request songs. They banged out the best of today and of course some great classics, heck you might even hear some of your favorite tv themes too. Patrons were included in the show transforming into performers.
Bartenders are also stars here. They serve up some of the most delectable drinks you’ll ever drink! No pretentious wines or bitter whiskeys here. Rums and fruit juices are mixed together and topped with a little rubber ducky. If you really want to celebrate, you can order a Schooner! Fruit and alcohol swim around in a large glass big enough to share with up to five friends who will no doubt be very happy. Its truly a party in a glass! I tried a few of their regular cocktails and my favorite was the Dragon Punch made with Bacardi Dragonberry, Peach Schnapps, and Strawberry Pucker combined with cranberry, pineapple, and orange juice, topped off with 7 up and a rubber ducky. Yum!
Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar is approximately 18 minutes from downtown Chicago. If you don’t drive hop on the Metra, the CTA blue line, or grab a Lyft. When you want a guaranteed good time you can’t go wrong with Pete’s. Check out their website for more info. https://www.petesduelingpianobar.com/location-rosemont.html
