The Blue Monk Like 0 Disike 0 Report

Fact: The Blue Monk Piano Bar on Hopes Carr has a cut out in the top floor which is in the shape of a grand piano. This looks down to the stage area where there once was a grand piano that belonged to Gracie Fields. (This is now the TVA building - the only one still standing). Keith, who works there gave me a guided tour a few years ago. I filmed it and put it on youtube. Search for "the blue monk piano bar" and it's top of the list.
