New Kingston piano bar hits all the right notes

A new piano bar recently opened in downtown Kingston, providing a quiet and relaxing drinking atmosphere that can be hard to find locally.

Oldies Piano Bar & Cafe, located next to Sourdough Willy’s Pizzeria, is not your typical high-energy sports bar, owner Agustin Delgado said. It doesn’t serve hard liquor, only wine and beer.

“You won’t find other piano bars close by,” he said. “The concept of the piano bar is one quiet place. It’s a place to relax and have great conversations,” adding it’s also a good place for a date and for older people.

Delgado is originally from Mexico City and started playing the piano as a young boy. “I am not a professional,” he said. “However, I love the piano.”

He moved to the United States about 25 years ago and currently splits time living at his house in Edmonds and upstairs at the piano bar on weekends since he rents that space. He contacts professional piano players to perform at the bar and said he likes to have different styles of performances. When performers are unavailable or running late, Delgado performs.

As for the cuisine, the bar offers small bites influenced by Spanish flavors made with local produce, pairing tapas with wines from the region and Latin America, the bar’s Facebook page says. “The concept is bread, cheese and wine,” Delgado said.

The bar only has a few employees but might hire more by summer to account for the demand.

“I am so happy and proud to be in Kingston,” he said. “The people like it.”

Oldies Piano Bar & Cafe is located at 11253 NE State Highway 104. It opens at 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
