A good chill place with dueling pianist. This is a bar so don't expect to come dancing. The pianist are really good and play different genres of music including hip hop on their pianos.

So loud. So crazy. My girlfriend loves it. I hate it. It's warring piano's and it's not my thing. We had a Groupon and she'll be back.

Would never go there again. First off, Front door "bouncers" (ID checkers) have a " Power trip attitude" with checking ID's. Checking seinor citizens for Identification; give me a break! Deciding who they want in there based on looks,

I was invited to this place by a couple of friends...I like the atmosphere of a live piano band and guitar players pretty nice...but me being from the late 80's I guess some of the songs I just couldn't sing along with lol

When I first got there I went to the bar and there was one girl and one guy the guy took a while to get to us which seemed normal that I don't have a problem with but once he got to us i told him I want a drink on that big 24 oz tall glass looking thing he then told me "yeah what?" and I told him the same thing again...he just made a face like "you morons" and he went to get that list of the drinks you could get with that tall glass, he could of been nicer about it

Once I tell him that he comes back and I order another drink for a friend he does it and comes back and well two more of my friends came so I ordered two more drinks and he tells me with a pissed off face "anything else?" like ok are you really going to have a problem me ordering drinks over and over again, this shouldn't be your job then. I left no tip cause he was giving me bad service and attitude.

Then I went to get a drink with another friend and he was standing right in front of us and will not assist us he was by the cash register with folded arms while the girl worked hard core, the girl left (bathroom break?) and obviously he has to take over well he skips us seriously I am not exaggerating he was looking straight at us and would not assist us after he goes and assist others...rude!

I didn't talk to a manager but should of but I will not go back there again. I get what they are trying to do a cool enviorment and all but others like that bartender kill it big time!

I live locally to Howl at the Moon, and I prefer this place to a lot of local bars. Reason? The cover charge, and the parking. Yes, it's $10 to park at City Walk; Yes there is a cover charge, but given the rent of the place, what do you expect? I prefer to go there for the simple fact that it keeps certain unsavory elements out. The music is loud, the musicians get the crowd going and have a blast doing it. Yeah, they can't sing all the notes in every song, but it's fun, it's live, and I doubt you could do much better.

Bouncers - I keep reading about the 'rude' doormen and bouncers. Give me a break, you expect everyone to be smiling and happy all the time? These guys are not there to make you feel warm and fuzzy, they are there to make sure that you are safe, and obeying the rules *of which there are a few* so that other people are safe as well. You complain about them being a bit short with you, but what if they weren??t herding people around, and something bad went down? Then what? Complain that they didn??t keep people in control? And no, at a bar, you can??t be the nice bouncer and still expect the drunk ***holes to respect you and not give you a problem.

Wait staff - Yes you are a patron, yes you are buying drinks. Guess what, so are about 90 other people pressed up against the bar. Yes you??re going to tip, but tell me the truth, would you be inclined to kowtow to everyone who was tantalizing you with a whole $1 tip? If you don??t know what you want when you get up to the bar, the bartender is going to move on to someone who does. Do not expect them to sit there on a packed night and babysit you while you choose between the Fuzzy Navel and the Apple Pucker. He/she is going to leave, take care of another patron while you make up your mind so they keep the line moving. Everyone wants alcohol, and it won??t be pretty if everyone is waiting on you to decide what libation will tickle your fancy. You want better service, tip well, get the bartenders name and go back to him/her all the time. They are here to make money, and if you??re tipping well, they??ll make sure you??re happy. A $1 tip on a $6 beer is not tipping well, even on 3 for 1 Sundays. Scale accordingly.

Lack of Food ?? Wait, what?! You want food and drinks, go to Karl Strauss across the way. Good food, good beers. There are a ton of restaurants on City Walk that will be more than happy to feed you, and provide you with a limited selection of alcohol. Heck, TGIF would do just fine for that as well. Howl at the Moon is a watering hole. WATERING HOLE! Don??t know what that is? Look it up. You go to Howl to get drinks, hear music, get buzzed *or some variation thereof* and hang out with friends. Perhaps make a few new ones, just do us all a favor and leave the high and mighty attitude at your car, remove the stick from your lower orifice, and guys?don??t think that every woman coming in the door is craving your attention. Chances are you??re not that interesting, she??s not that stupid, and there isn??t enough alcohol in the bar. Get it? Got it? Good.

In summation, go there to have fun, go there to have drinks, go there to relax and bring your manners. If you??re wanting to make the scene, not the place for you. If you want to be treated like a celebrity, SOOO not the place for you. If you want someone to cater to your every whim, go to your mother??s house. Chances are she??ll look at you like you??ve grown a second head if you try and come at her with some arrogant demands, and she??ll put you in your place.

Ciao

Pros: Friendly wait staff, decent bar, drink specials.

Cons: Overly agressive patrons who want to be discovered.

.

Its a decent chill spot, the live band is probably the only good thing about the place. I was a little disappointed they don't serve any food. Either way, its an ok spot nothing special. Definitely not a place I'll frequent much unless forced to do so.

I've been a few times, and each time I hate it more and more.... The concept is great, dueling pianos and live band.... But its very expensive, filled with valley trash, and worst of all, the staff is horrible. They are all very rude and disrespectful. They are mindless drones. They will push you out of the way, don't listen to you.. They treat everyone with disrespect.... I understand that they deal with drunks all night, but its annoying for those who just want to go out and have a good time to be treated that way.... I'm going out and paying for a service and an experience. I'll take my money elsewhere, where people understand the concept of SERVICE INDUSTRY!

Talk about a freakin joke! We went here last week July 3rd due to my friend winning some "VIP" thing. Everyone who works there is rude!!!! From the doorman who was to busy talking about Nintendo Wii with some random guy in line so he was unable to check our id's. Then when we got our little tickets to get our 2 free drinks we're entitled to. We proceed over to the bar to redeem them and the bartender ignored us for like 10 min. and then when he finally decided to come up to us i asked him a question regarding a drink and his response to me was "NO!" and then walked away. About 2 min. go by and he decides to come back and i ordered a drink and he tried to get away again i yelled at him to come back so my boyfriend could order. He comes back and my boyfriend asks him what kind of beer he could get with those tickets and he said that we had to get our drinks from our server and he walked away yet again!

We then go to the table where my friends are and they said that they had ordered all their drinks from the bar. By this point i am pissed...i went to get a manager, So when the manager came i'm trying to tell him all what happened and he gets in my face and starts yelling at me!!!! My boyfriend then puts his hand on his chest and tells him to back off and asked if he was the manager! At that point i think he realized he made a mistake and went and got our drinks.

THEN...to top off our wonderful night, my girlfriend and i go to the bathroom (by the way you could hardly move due to them over packing the place with ppl and we're fighting off losers who keep trying to talk to us). After getting out of the stall...we are then harrassed by the bathroom attendant for taking to long! So needless to say i was completely and utterly pissed off at this point.

Also since they went over their capacity of people, morons were spilling their drinks on the floor left and right and i almost slipped about 3 different times.

Needless to say, this place sux!!!! My friends and i will never step foot in here again and i am going to make sure i spread the word.

This is probably my favorite bar ever. The dueling pianos are always entertaining and the servers are pretty nice. I love to get the jello shots which are served in giant souvenir plastic syringes. The servers then shoot them into your mouth and top it off with whipped cream. I won a party there once and I brought sixty people. The bar gave my entire party free entrance, free parking, and highly discounted drinks. It can get a little crowded on the weekends, but it is still a lot of fun.

It's a nice place if your looking for a fun time minus all the trouble of getting ready for a club. I have made it a ritual to go on sundays, during three day weekends, where I can get 3 drinks for about 15 bucks, including tips. It's pretty fun since the pianist will include all types of music from beastie boys, to nelly, to journey, even Vicente Fernandez!!! It does get pretty crowded though, so plan on arriving around 9 or so... anytime after that and you will have to wait at least 30 min, if not more. Another con, for some reason the last time I went the cover charge went from $3 to $10... in one night.

I actually don't disagree that this is a great place to go if you're a woman. Bachelorette or birthday parties, ladies nights - great. It's definitely a chick thing. If you're a guy, and you're not making the sacrifice for a good reason, think twice. The food is awful, the songs are corny and the drinks are far better elsewhere. Just a heads up to any guys looking through reviews. So far I think only the ladies have chimed in.

Howl at the Moon is a blast! From the live music entertainment to the singing & dancing bartenders and servers you don't know where to look when! While they do charge a cover on the weekends after a certain hour, they are providing entertainment the entire time. No breaks or downtime as the pianists rotate. Parking can be pricey at CityWalk, but its worth the money!! Tony Romas will even deliver food to you while you're at Howl at the Moon! The outside patio allows you to have a little more ability to chat, but still hear and be part of the live show!

i love the band they're always entertaining. bartenders are cool. there was a mix up and they thought i had a happy hour party and not a birthday party so i didn't get a stage call down, song request, birthday shot or shirt. so i was/am unhappy. i don't think i will throw parties there anymore. not sure if i will go back.

Maybe it was the night I was here, but the crowd seemed to hover around the barely-21 age range. Mostly college kids and a bit on the immature-roudy side. On a positive note, their beer selection was decent and the dueling pianos were fun. I'd be curious to come back for open-mic night.

This is a great place if you are looking to have a few drinks and sing out loud no matter who is around you. Make sure to tip the piano guys-- they will sing just about anything and make you feel silly in front of your friends. Its rather small so get there early for a table.

Who charges a cover anymore? That is the first sign. They charge you to walk in the door, and once your in you realize that the bar is full of unattractive drunks who are trying to out sing two piano players. If you can find a place to sit down (good luck) you then have to find a server to get you a very expensive drink. I would not go here in hopes of meeting someone, because you can not talk at all over the annoying drunk people who now think that they can sing well. There are so many other places to choose from, I wouldn't waste my time going here.

WOW, talk about a fun night. The dueling pianos are more exciting each time I go! Go to sing, eat, drick, and be merry. Drop off a business card to win a party for 100 people!

I LOVE HOWL AT THE MOON! My friends and I go there all the
time. It's a dualing piano bar type concept but with a twist. It's not
corny at all, but tons of fun! It's an outstanding entertainment
experience, one that you're sure never to forget. The piano players
are witty and encourage everyone to sing along to songs that
we all know by heart. (well I don't know them ALL, but i would
say about 95%) The drinks are excellent and they even have
their own signature shots like the Tube shot (in a test tube) and
their Jell-O shots in a plastic syringe (both of which you can
keep each time you get one!) Even the staff members, the waiters the
bartenders etc.. get in on the act with a "showtime" routine
where they dance on the stage and on the bar! You can celebrate
virtually ANY occasion. Birthday, bachelorette/bachelor, divorce
etc.... on any given night it's a HOT spot. I can't wait to go back!

PROS: You can win a party for up to 100 people!
CONS: No cons! I love this place!!

It's a very kool piano bar.There're two pianos and two pianists who play on the piano the whole night.They're always ready to play something you would like to hear.
If you want to hang out with your friends, have some beer, listen to some nice music and to spend quality time you should definitely go there.

PROS: atmosphere, music
CONS:

Howl at the Moon is located on the far east side of Universal City Walk upstairs. It's a bar and so there is a legal age requirement. They have both inside and outside seating available. There is dueling piano players who sit accross from each other and sing songs and get the bar crowd going. They have different deals during the week, but the real nights to go are Friday and Saturday nights. It's the kind of bar that is extremely upbeat and fun. It's great for a date or a girls/guys night out. They have great drinks for reasonable prices and the customer service is wonderful. Everybody is friendly and you are guarnteed to have a great time at this bar!

It was a very upbeat, enjoyable atmosphere!

PROS: Good drinks.
Clean glasses.
Music.
Upbeat, enthusiastic entertainers!
CONS: Can't think of any...

Let me set the scene for you. There is a stage with 2 pianos and 2 piano players. These are guys that are very funny and have mics attached to their pianos, so they talk and sing all night. It is like a show but very informal. They also are a bit dirty in there skits, so make sure to go with an open mind. The place gets packed. People love it. It has a lot of regulars. If you don't get there early enough you will be stuck standing all night. Fun place to go for bachlorette parties or birthdays.

For those who don't like it here, it's because you don't like dueling piano bars. The best piano players, and they can actually sing. If you get there early it's much better, you get to see and get drunk with everyone as opposed to trying to catch up. Just make sure to request the good stuff and keep the party going.

Pros: Piano player talent, party crowd, Location

Cons: , expensive drinks

I have been here about six times, and have always had a great time. I would recomend this place for anyone who wants to spend a few hours screaming along with the musicians and laughing histerically at there renditions of a variety of songs. They only serve appetizers so get your dinner elsewhere before you go. Some people think it is expensive for the drinks but they are no where near the cost of a bar up on sunset. Plus you get great free entertainment. Sometimes it can be crowded but it changes since most people are from out of town. never to bad though!!

Pros: Atmosphere, Location, Service

Cons: No dinner

We have a great time everytime we go here. But it is crowded, so get there early to get a table on the floor section. The other sections with tables are almost too far away to be in on the action. It is good for a big group of people, but I have had fun with just 1 or 2 also.

Pros: Entertaining, Audience Partcipation, Good for Birthdays

Cons: Crowded, Can be Pricey, Pay for Parking

It was ok, but I had a better time next door at the Dance Place - um the Rumba Place. I guess you need to be with a huge party. Because everyone at Howl was drunk and you really can't move. At least you could dance and there were different rooms at the Rumba. Overall it was OK but you can't really go alone

I don't like piano duos, but my mate and I tried it out. The guys can sing and are some what funny. Service was fine, ok selection of beer. Just some place else to check out on Citywalk.
