The thick songbook at Chorus—a karaoke bar tucked away on the third floor of a nondescript Korea Town building—includes a decent selection of Asian pop, Michael Jackson classics, and a surprisingly comprehensive selection of Radiohead (“Fake Plastic Trees,” “High and Dry”). The drinks are small and expensive, and the “lounge” is more sad than nostalgic (green laser lights, fog machine, complimentary Cheetos puffs). But the real energy can be found in the smaller, rentable rooms, where on weekends groups of hopped-up twentysomethings often end their nights downing a few glasses of soju and belting out the chorus to the Police’s “Roxanne.”
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
