LOWER EAST SIDE — A man was brutally beaten by two suspects following a brawl at the popular bar Pianos in an attack captured on surveillance video, authorities said. 

The spat started inside the bar and music venue at 158 Ludlow St., where the 24-year-old victim and his attackers got into a fight early Friday morning and the victim was booted from the bar, police said.

The victim then waited outside the bar for the suspects to exit, at which point the brawl started up again, the NYPD said.


The suspects chased the victim away from the bar, catching up to him outside 156 Orchard St., where they began pummeling him with punches, kicks and stomps to the head and body around 2:45 a.m. Friday, police said.

After the beating, the suspects fled in a black livery cab, police said.

The victim was taken to Bellevue Hospital in serious condition and has since been released. He has been uncooperative with authorities, and there were no arrests as of Monday morning, police said. An investigation is ongoing. 

Pianos did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
