Ernie Biggs Dueling Piano Bar opens Thursday

WICHITA — The new Ernie Biggs Dueling Piano Bar opens at 7 p.m. Thursday in the former Gaslamp Grille & Lounge near Central and Rock.

It's more of a soft opening, says co-owner Jay Hickman, who calls it a "sneak peek" of the place.

It's not clear what former Gaslamp owner Whitney VinZant's role will be.

"Whitney is not a managing member of this LLC or this business," Hickman says. "He won't have anything to do with the day-to-day operations."

But he does have a role?

"I would rather not get into that."
