The Big Bang

501 S. Mill Ave., #101 Tempe, AZ 85281 | Tempe | 480-557-5595

Location Description:

The Big Bang touts itself as "an underground dueling piano bar." Patrons provide as much entertainment as the pianists, getting onstage to dance and sing along. A high level of audience participation, combined with the pianists' campy humor, creates the aura of a cheesy lounge high on nitrous oxide, seven nights a week.
