There comes a time each winter season when most of us metro Detroiters get plagued with seasonal boredom. There’s plenty to do in the southeast Michigan area, but when it’s cold, who wants to brave the weather to do anything?

If you’re feeling the winter blues, consider taking advantage of one of southeast Michigan’s most interactive, fun and entertaining indoor activities: piano bars.

Music, food and fun meet at the following piano bars in southeast Michigan, where oftentimes, you get to be part of the show:
