Johnny Plays, People Fall in Love

New York & Chicago Style

A Reason to Come In and Stay Awhile

Jonathan Menchin at the piano

Jonathan is a master of the New York & Chicago steakhouse and piano bar style that makes dining out in those cities so exciting and romantic. There's a pulse in the room -- the rhythm of nightlife and romance. The warm atmosphere gives people a welcome into the room and a reason to stay. Jonathan plays for the crowd, promoting conversation, creating an atmosphere where guests are happy to hear music in the background or come sit around the piano and engage up close in an atmosphere of elegance and sophistication.

Host & Storyteller

Bringing People Together

Jonathan has the rare ability to play the piano and talk at the same time. "I seem to talk better when I play and I play better when I talk." And he puts that to good use as a storyteller, comedian and as a host. A piano filled room makes people comfortable to take the time to make new friends and business acquaintances -- an ideal place to meet socially and professionally. Customers stay a little longer, have one more drink and don't want the night to end -- an experience they won't forget and they'll want to come back and bring their friends.
