Without dueling pianos, crowds could only determine a musician's aptitude through televised talent shows and oboe-hurling contests. Experience a clean, non-violent night out with today's Groupon: for $50, you get group admission for up to 10 friends, a catered buffet, and your first round of drinks for just a penny each at The Big Bang, located in the Arena District (a $150 value). Today's Groupon is only valid on Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. or Fridays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.; you can combine Groupons if your crowd exceeds 10. Be sure to call ahead to schedule your shindig and bring your Groupon the night of your party.
After the doors swing open, The Big Bang regales guests with an evening of food, drink, and rambunctious sing-alongs with their crooning cronies. Slap on your party wristband, and you'll receive access to an exclusive party section or patio (weather permitting), a catered buffet, and first-round drinks for only one penny each. Once you've consumed the regulation amount of food and drinks, sing your song onstage in a lilting falsetto or river-dredging baritone. Onstage, a rotating handful of multi-talented melody makers and a team of beer-fueled patrons take turns bleating their favorite bar tunes. Dramatic ivory-fueled combat comes further supplemented by vibrating bass, explosive drums, laser-guided keytars, and other musical weaponry. They'll take any request you like, and their repertoire spans from rollicking rock classics to modern noisemakers such as hip-hop wonder and minor character-actor Xcalade. t the spacious wooden bar for the duration of the party. An energetic, round-the-clock live show encourages hip shaking and feet shuffling under the dim lighting, where the concrete floor lays beaten and defeated from years of foot poundings.
With group admission for up to 10 guests, today's Groupon creates a fun opportunity for raucous bachelorette parties, boisterous birthdays, or buck-wild bridge clubs.
- The outside sign to The Big Bang says it all: We’re going to resuscitate the spirit of the long-departed Howl at the Moon Saloon, complete with a raucous party atmosphere and sing-a-longs galore. – Metromix
- The considerable space has plenty of tables, each with pens and napkins for writing song requests. The two large, wooden bars have multiple bartenders slinging drinks, but the cocktail staff is always on hand for table service, and to pass along those requests. – Jesse Tigges, Alive!
