Long-time Banana Cafe Piano Bar Entertainer Moves to Finn McCool’s

Banana Cafe’s legendary piano bar entertainer, Gordon Kent, has moved across Barracks Row to Finn McCool’s (formerly Molly Malone’s, formerly Finn MacCool’s). Banana Bar, which shuttered after 25 years in December, was popular for its upstairs piano bar, where Kent played piano, sax, and other instruments since the mid 2000s. Finn McCool’s (located at 713 8th St. SE near G St SE). He plays Fridays and Saturday nights at 8p in the bar’s new piano bar upstairs. That means DC continues to have 5 spots within its limits to enjoy piano bar entertainment: Mr. Smiths and Georgetown Piano Bar (both in Georgetown), Shaw’s Tavern (weekly on Wednesdays and one Friday a month), Quill at The Jefferson (more classy low-key piano lounge rather than raucous time), and now Finn McCool’s
