What You'll Get
Live music is a huge improvement on canned music, which takes up valuable pantry space and often spoils into noxious free jazz. Keep it fresh with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of live music, signature cocktails, and American fare at Howl at the Moon.
Like a bar party that breaks out in concert, Howl at the Moon blurs boundaries with dueling pianists singing top 40 hits, servers lugging cocktails served in 86-ounce buckets, and a menu of appetizers and creative sandwiches. Guests pump music-note-filled fists in the large, dance-encouraging space (cover charge $5–$8), squealing excitedly as the full band plays the opening bars of their requested songs, which have included Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass," Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," and Nicki Minaj's cover of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'." Between bouts of choreographed dance routines, energetic servers festoon guests with signature drinks such as the vanilla vodka X-Boyfriend cocktail, or tennessee tea full of Jack Daniels and SoCo ($5-$12). Attendees can couple sips from 86-ounce buckets of Bacardi rum and grenadine ($25+) with jalapeño poppers ($7.96), or sop up the excess fun with the grilled-cheese cheeseburger ($10.95), an 8-ounce patty nestled between two grilled-cheese sandwiches and covered with sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions, and bacon.

About Howl at the Moon
Howl at the Moon’s trademark live music show serves as the epicenter of nightly celebrations, as patrons submit their favorite songs on slips of paper for the pianists and backing musicians to recreate. If the website’s playlist is any indication, the bands can handle popular songs from all genres and eras, from Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” to Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” The performances are spirited: colorful lights splash upon a stage where servers, guests and chairs that have somehow developed mobility all dance along to the music.
On any given night, Howl at the Moon could be hosting a bachelor or bachelorette party, a birthday party, work parties and more. Fueling the celebration is the bar’s indulgent selection of drinks. Not only can patrons indulge in Jello Shots, but revelers grab colorful straws to help drain 86 oz. Booze Buckets filled with sangria or other fruity libations. Pomegranate liqueur and honey-infused whiskey sweeten specialty cocktails, and local beers add depth to coolers stocked with Sam Adams and Lagunitas IPA.
