Following several on-stage bouts with screaming fans in front of arenas chock full of attendees, Justin Bieber scaled things way back for his latest performance.

The 22-year-old Ontario native turned a casual Friday night at a Toronto bar into an impromptu concert venue as he belted through a series of piano-driven covers in the city’s entertainment district.

According to local news, Bieber, who arrived at Fifth Pubhouse by himself to watch a Nov. 4 Toronto Raptors game, spotted the piano and asked bar management if he could play. In exchange, the bar picked up Bieber’s tab. 

Bieber showed off his skills as a pianist, sitting behind the instrument as he crooned through acoustic versions of the Beatles track “Let It Be,” his own No. 1 hit single “Sorry,” and several bars of Beethoven’s “Für Elise”.
