If you think all piano bars are the same, think again. Yes, Billy Joel's "Piano Man" is the most requested song at just about each one, but few establishments operate at the level of Pete's Dueling Piano Bar. For starters, consider the two pianos - while a packed house sings along, two stalwarts pound out everything from Jerry Lee Lewis to Dr. Dre for a crowd full of lawyers, MBAs and both urban cowboys and cowgirls. The Houston Pavilions watering hole is an exceptionally popular spot for bachelorette parties and birthday celebrations, and the maestros will play just about anything if the price is right. Wednesday or Thursday nights are free, but Fridays and Saturdays do cost a meager cover charge. Take note that the bar is often full to the brim on weekends, so it's wise to call ahead and reserve a table.
