Aspiring pianists must practice their etudes every day to improve sight-reading, metacarpal flexibility, and clairvoyant anticipation of Kidz Bop song requests. Appreciate the products of the pianist's process with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 of piano-bar fare at Chopstix. This Groupon is valid at Chopstix's locations in Seattle, Everett, and Tacoma, but does not include the $7 cover charge on Friday and Saturday nights.
Chopstix provides memorable nights with a concoction of dueling pianos, sing-alongs, and delicious American fare. The menu full of chops, seafood, salads, and pasta satisfies stomachs as ears get hand-fed honey-drizzled peanut-butter-stuffed trills and glissandi. Familiar appetizers such as calamari ($8.99) and coconut shrimp ($9.99) provide a tasty preamble to a steak salad ($14.99) strewn with organic greens, blue-cheese crumbles, diced tomatoes, and terra strips. Or opt for the provolone-smothered mushroom chicken ($14.99). The aptly named Sir Elton's London broil ($15.99) gets topped with béarnaise sauce and accompanied by fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes or krinkle-cut fries for a meatsperience that tastes as hearty and delectable as the eponymous knight’s outfits are glittery.
Piano shows are performed Wednesday through Saturday in Seattle, and Thursday through Sunday in Tacoma and Everett. The live ivory-tinkling includes dueling pianos, sing-alongs, and the main draw, the Rock and Roll Dinner Show, which features rollicking renditions of favorite pop and rock hits. Whether they’re birthday celebrants, bachelorettes, or recently wedded couples, guests of honor frequently get sent onstage to be gently teased like young otter whelps in the complicated, musical initiation ceremonies seen in the otter kingdom.
Due to demand, Chopstix recommends that patrons call early to book a reservation. Reservations can only be held a maximum of 15 minutes after reservation time. This deal is not valid with happy-hour pricing.

- It was hard to tell if the pianos or our dinners were the main event. Chopstix opened quietly in September, but the food and entertainment are so hot you'll wish the night was fireproof. – Anna Poole, Everett Herald
- One of the greatest aspects: Their musicians have TALENT! Todd, Billy, and the rest of the crew can really get the place rockin' and rollin' I think that it is awesome and amazing that they know such a wide range of songs. – Jodi S., Yelp
