After riding an elevator to the fifth floor of what looks to be a drab office building, you’re greeted inside by a bar that looks crash-landed from a Ziggy Stardust poster: silver bar-counter, glittery tables the color of melon chewing gum, and long banquettes. Pay a $40 toll, and you’re ushered into one of ten no-nonsense white rooms with flat-screen TVs, amazing sound systems, and futuristic video-song selectors. The catalogue favors Asian teeny-boppers: If you know your J-Pop from your K-Pop, and can recite verbatim the latest Rain album, this is the place to park your vocal cords. English songs are harder to come by (though they are there, along with some choice Tagalog numbers).Pay the toll
Karaoke rooms range from $40-$60/hr., but you can get discounts by ordering bottle service.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
