I’ve been dueling with Felix and Fingers for a good 3 years now. That is also about how long it has been since I’ve had a chance to sit solo and work on the kind of performance that (if I’m to be completely honest) I kind of miss.
Within just 3 short weeks, Bakersfield in Westmont has become one of my favorite places to play. It’s a refreshing change for me, and although I love the crazy fun atmosphere of dueling pianos, I equally appreciate the more laid back, softer, solo performances.
I’m lucky because now I get to do both on a regular basis (dueling and solo performances.) What a great way to stay rounded as a musician. But enough about me; let me tell you about Bakersfield.
Westmont, IL Bakersfield
If you are looking for a classy, yet fun atmosphere, this is the place to be. The ambience both indoors and outdoors is perfect! With summer here, you’ll most certainly want to enjoy some delicious food and drinks in the sun. They have a beautiful horizontal fire pit on their outdoor patio that really makes you want to sit down and relax, and then stay.
As for their food… well I’ve only eaten there once. But what I have eaten is delicious, and what I haven’t eaten looks delicious! Certainly, when I finish my next show, I plan to sit down again and have another meal.
You will probably find live music there from a Felix and Fingers pianist Thursday thru Saturday, and on some odd occasions you might catch one of the different acts that our company provides.
If you only have free time early in the day, you’ll love their lunch menu. But if going out for dinner is your thing, definitely swing by, and say hello to the piano player. We like to meet people! If you’re nice, we’ll even play your favorite song! 😉
