Dueling piano bar Park Bench sold, Stagecoach to expand

UPDATED: This article previously incorrectly stated that Park Bench would close. Updated to reflect that Park Bench will be moving, and Stagecoach will take over the space.

A longtime Buckhead dueling piano bar is moving to make way for an expanded concept from a neighboring country bar.

Park Bench Buckhead Village will move in December after 30 years at 34 Irby Ave. NW to a bigger location, according to owner Larry Hall. The space was purchased by the owner of Stagecoach, the bar next door that dubs itself on its Facebook page as“Buckhead’s country bar” and touts its Brutus the Bull ride and drink specials. Steve Josovitz of The Shumacher Group represented Park Bench in the transaction. The Schumacher Group also represented Park Bench when it sold its Dunwoody location in 2000.

Stagecoach will combine both spaces “in a major renovation to create a very exciting and expanded venue,” according to a press release. 

In addition to dueling pianos, Park Bench also featured live music from local bands and a large outdoor patio.
