Compass Pizza and Bar are proud to offer Melbourne's only GRAND PIANO open mic night for amateur and seasoned musicians looking to have fun or to impress their date.

The venue boasts a mahogany grand piano lit by the ambient glow from a lamp in a corner. Hear the ivories tinkled from 7 pm to 10 pm on Wednesday while enjoying a pizza or two. If you are brave enough, get up there and play a couple of tunes yourself!

Come play me on Wednesdays

Premiering on the 14th of June, the success of the idea sent forth a burst of responses from eager participants in the public. Now due to popularity, the bar increased the frequency of the piano open night from once fortnightly to EVERY WEEK!

What's more, performers get a small pizza FREE!

Encouraging pianists of all levels to have a go at this no-judgement space. However... the ironclad rule is that there shall be no 'Heart and Soul' or 'Chopsticks' played lest everyone deserts Compass.

Should you also wish to sing along to your piano playing, Compass caters for that special jazz number or pop star in you with a mic upon request.

Play and sing with friends

Absolutely all styles and abilities welcome. (As long as you use the piano...)

This event is not limited to only covers of your favourite songs. Singer-songwriters are also urged to present their material for the appreciation of the audience.

Play up to three pieces or fifteen minutes of music to stoke your listeners into rowdy applause before taking a well deserved bow (and a bite out of your pizza).
