Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of libations and live music at The Penguin Dueling Piano Bar. Seating is first come, first served, and the establishment does not serve food.

Voted Best Place for Girls' Night Out by Inside Columbia magazine, The Penguin serenades audiences with sing-along requests. Talented musicians fly in from around the country to ensure a fresh crop of faces and entertainment every week. Onstage, two baby grand pianos sit opposite one other in front of entertainers ready to tap out any of thousands of songs from the past five decades, all committed to their mental jukeboxes.

The spectacle keeps toes tapping and voice boxes crooning along for the four-hour set, punctuated by short comedy bits, toasts, and roasts. After belting out the lyrics to "Livin' on a Prayer" or "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da," guests can soothe sore throats with an apple martini ($7.75), a long island ($6.75), or a blue moon ($4.25), or they can imbibe in wallet-pleasing style with one of The Penguin's daily drink specials, such as $6 import pitchers on Thursdays. Today's deal can be also be used toward cover charges ($5 per person).

Must be 21 or older to enter, no exceptions.


Inside Columbia magazine awarded The Penguin its "Best Girls' Night Out Location" in 2009, 2010, and 2011. Five Yelpers give the bar an average of three stars.

The Penguin Dueling Piano Bar

At The Penguin Dueling Piano Bar, there's two jukeboxes—human ones, seated at two baby grand pianos. Based on the crowd's request, the ivory-ticklers play from a mental catalog of thousands of hits, spanning more than five decades. The crowd sings along, fueled by pours from the full bar, which range from pitchers of beer to tart apple martinis.
