Opening perspective

Dear friends!

Due to the falling incidence in Dortmund, there is soon already the possibility to reopen at least limited the outdoor gastronomy. We would like to do this again and open our beer garden for you. However, this will take some time due to upcoming and at the moment already ongoing construction and renovation measures.

We estimate that the ongoing and planned work will continue until about the middle/end of August. Therefore, it is unfortunately not possible for us to open before then. However, as soon as the work is completed, we will open promptly and much nicer for you.

We are already looking forward to you and to unforgettable evenings at Piano

STREAM IN DEN MAI +++ Musik und Talk aus der Dortmunder Nachtkultur

+++ präsentiert von der IG Dortmunder Club- und Konzertkultur +++
+++ mit freundlicher Unterstützung des Kulturbüros Dortmund +++
Freitag, 30.04.2021, von 20:00 Uhr bis 0:00 Uhr – Link: posten wir zeitnah!
Während früher am 30. April ausschweifend in den Mai getanzt wurde, herrscht auch dieses Jahr wieder Stille. Seit genau 412 Tagen sind die Dortmunder Clubs dann geschlossen. Doch wir sind immer noch da.
Und um dies zu beweisen, haben wir für euch zum Tanz in den Mai einen Gratis-Stream aus dem Oma Doris auf die Beine gestellt.
Wir haben eure liebsten lokalen Künstler*innen eigeladen, die für euch Platten auflegen und mit Cosmo Klein sogar einen Liveact dabei. Dazwischen wird sich unser Moderator mit den Gästen Dimitri Hegemann vom Tresor.West, Hendrikje Spengler vom Kulturbüro Dortmund und DJ Larse unterhalten.
Die schwierige Zeit hat alle Kulturschaffenden enger zusammenrücken lassen und gemeinsam wollen wir auch die Zukunft bestreiten. Und ihr fehlt uns natürlich auch. Deswegen wollen wir einen Abend mit euch verbringen und erzählen, was sich in Dortmunds Club- und Konzertkultur im letzten Jahr so alles getan hat. Gemeinsam mit unseren Talkgästen wollen wir zudem einen Blick darauf werfen, wie es für uns und euch weitergehen könnte.
Wir freuen uns auf euren Support!
Bleibt daheim, befolgt die Regeln und lasst euch von uns unterhalten.
Line Up:
DJ Emby (Weinkeller)
Rosa v. Funktronix (Großmarktschänke)
Cosmo Klein & Dirk Berger & Thomas Stieger – live – (Musiktheater Piano)
DJ Larse (Oma Doris)
Stefan Moerken (Silent Sinners)
DJ Stingray (Tresor.West)

At the turn of the year thanks to Ulli and Voxe

Dear friends of the Piano Music Theater,

the year is coming to an end and now also our long and good cooperation with the Schneider family. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ulli and Voxe for the years together in the beautiful piano! It was a wild ride in Rock'n'Roll with you and a great time! We thank you for that!
We wish you all the best for the future and especially health and happiness.
Happy New Year to all and here's to a better 2021!

Update and Christmas Greetings

Dear friends of the Musiktheater Piano,

dieses Jahr war wohl für uns alle das schwierigste Jahr unserer Karriere. Ungewißheit, Zweifel und Perspektivlosigkeit haben an unser aller Nerven gezehrt. Aber dank euch und eurer moralischen und auch finanziellen Hilfe haben wir das alles überstanden und blicken nunmehr optimistisch ins neue Jahr 2021. Sicher wird es noch einige Monate dauern, bis wir wieder einen halbwegs normalen Spielbetrieb aufnehmen können, aber ein Ende ist abzusehen.

Also the sale of the building is meanwhile abgeshlossen and we can say that we have with the family Budin a really very nice and competent new landlord. At this point we would like to thank Uta and Rita Budin for the talks and perspectives that have arisen so far. We are looking forward to working with you.

The team of Musiktheater Piano and 3 dog entertainment wishes all our loyal visitors and friends a peaceful Christmas and a happy new year. Our hope is that we will experience great concerts together with you again and have a good time together at the latest from autumn 2021. In any case, we will do everything to make this possible. And with your support and help we will make it happen.

Until then, please stay safe and sound. As a friend of ours so aptly said: "Close your eyes and dance". We have nothing more to add to this....

Your team from the music theater Piano and 3 dog entertainment

... unfortunately not this year

Dear ones!

Unfortunately we have to cancel the "Rockin around the Christmas Tree" Weekender this year with a heavy heart.

We move one year and the new date is 17./.18. + 19.12.2021.

Currently we are still talking to all the bands from this year in the hope that we can see them all live next year.

We will keep you up to date on the line up and then also on the advance ticket sales.

Stay healthy!

Your Piano-Team

What happens next?

Dear friends of the Musiktheater Piano,

As many of you have already noticed, the building Lütgendortmunder Strasse 43 is for sale. Let us assure you that nothing will change for you and us. We are in active contact with the real estate agent and the owners. It is in all our interests to continue the piano and its program in the usual way. We have already booked numerous concerts for 2021 and 2022. We would not do that if we had the slightest doubt that everything would continue as usual. As soon as the new owner of the building is determined, we will sit down with him/her and discuss everything else.

Topic Corona:

At the moment we assume that we will be able to return to "normal gaming operations" by autumn 2021 at the latest. Until then we will hopefully hold out, also thanks to your generous support.

You see, Covid 19 is a greater threat to the survival of the piano than the sale of the building.

We are looking forward to experiencing great concerts with you in this unique location in the coming years.

Your Piano-Team


Dear friends of the Musiktheater Piano,

tomorrow evening we will have another drink with you and then we have to close the doors until the end of November.

Of course we are unfortunately unable to hold the concert with Yasi Hofer and will inform you about a possible catch-up date as soon as possible.

Thanks for your support and hopefully for better times.

Your Musiktheater Piano Team


Dear friends of the Musiktheater Piano,

The following changes result from the current situation:

  • Concerts: Unfortunately the concerts of Safe by Sound on 17.10. and Zed Mitchell on 23.10. are cancelled. We will of course try to make up for these. The current regulations also provide for an MNS at the seat and we don't want you to have to do that.
  • Pub operation and general opening hours: from now on we will open the pub on Fridays from 19.00-23.00 (official closing time). The piano will remain closed on all other days for the time being.

We are watching the further development very closely and as soon as there are any changes we will inform you about them.
Otherwise, of course, we regret the restrictions, but we are also aware of our responsibility.
We thank you for your support and understanding and hope to see you all soon.

Your Musiktheater Piano Team

BACK TO LIVE +++ concert series

Dear friends of the Musiktheater Piano,

due to the current restrictions caused by the Covid 19 pandemic we unfortunately had to postpone or cancel almost all concerts in 2020. At the moment, due to official restrictions, we can only admit 80 guests to piano concerts. However, as this is not economically viable for most artists and for us, we are unfortunately forced to postpone the concerts.

To be able to offer you a representative cross-section of our piano programme this year, we are cooperating with the Warsteiner Music Hall in Dortmund. There, even under the prescribed conditions, concerts with up to 400 guests are possible. The Warsteiner Music Hall and we will play a series of concerts under the title "BACK TO LIVE". The audience will be placed on bar stools at bar tables, which comes very close to a real "live feeling". Translated with (free version)

On the part of the Musiktheater Piano the following acts will perform in this series:

16.10. 2020 – JANE VVK: 25,-€ plus fees

24.10. 2020 – DEMON’S EYE VVK: 22,-€ plus fees

25.10. 2020 – HENRIK FREISCHLADER & Band VVK: 24,-€ plus fees

07.11. 2020 – GURU GURU VVK: 22,-€ plus fees

28.11. 2020 – QUEEN KINGS Deluxe VVK: 25,-€ plus fees

13.12. 2020 – IAN PAICE & PURPENDICULAR VVK: 45,-€ plus fees

23.12. 2020 – THE BUH & Friends VVK: 22,-€ plus fees

Admission is always at 19 o'clock. The concerts start around 20.30 hrs.

=> Warsteiner Music Hall

Tickets are available from Monday 14 September 2020 (CTS/Eventim, at the Piano and via the Warsteiner Music Hall homepage). Tickets already purchased for concerts of these bands at the piano are also valid at the Warsteiner Music Hall.

We hope to welcome you all there and to have a few more live concerts with you this year. WE LOVE IT LIVE.
