Start exercising your vocal chords now. If you go to Jake Ivory's piano bar on Lansdowne Street on any given Friday or Saturday night, you will sing Queen and Hall & Oates with abandon. It's unavoidable. Jake Ivory's pianists have a huge rock and rap repertoire, and yes, they do take requests. If you don't mind the crush of bachelorettes and birthday parties, this cheesy sing-along bar should be a stop on any Fenway-area night out.
