The Mirage To Have Dueling Pianos, Too

June 22, 2012 at 2:44 PM | by | ()

Looks like The Mirage hasn't gotten the memo that karaoke is the new dueling pianos. (Admittedly, it was our memo and we may not have mass mailed it yet as we've been despondent that Celine stole our signature song.)

Starting July 5, BB King's restaurant inside The Mirage will tickle our old school fancies with Lucille's Dueling Pianos:

Enjoy dinner and a show while the piano virtuosos ‘shake, rattle and roll’ over 176 keys and through their vast repertoire of songs, spanning decades of hits. From Billy Joel to Bon Jovi and beyond, there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.

Battling pianists will be featured every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Most likely a fun time is in store, but a free time is definitely not. There will be a $5 cover charge on Thursdays. It jumps up to $10 bucks on Fridays and Saturdays.

Admittedly, we've laid out a fiver to sing "All My Loving" once so, yeah, you'll probably see us here soon. July 5 will give us just enough time to perfectly execute our favorite song on the Magic Mike soundtrack.

I know that many people enjoy dueling pianos, but at a Blues spot?  It's probably a better use of the space, as I didn't get the feeling that this place was cutting it as music venue (if I'm wrong please let me know). I used to enjoy stopping at the outside bar when they had happy hour, but that was about it.


I'm actually surprised that this resto is still open. I've never seen it busy no matter the time of day and there's the bankruptcy issues, too.

Also, I always thought this restaurant was an odd choice for the Mirage. Just doesn't seem to fit with their marketing. I agree with you that it isn't making a name for itself as a live music venue.

Time to Retire Kimg's

Hearing and also seeing what others are saying.   The time has passed to face facts that BB's at the Mirage is not working.  The Mirage was better off when the spot was Caribe Cafe, and in actuality every hotel needs a 24 hr restaurant/coffee shop/etc., and Carnegie doesn't count.  Whether you bring back the restaurant or introduce something else, time to make the move and quick.  Vegas more than any other place is all about continually evolving.
