The lowdown

Sing-Sing is one of the East Village’s classic karaoke dives, so its frills-free look feels fitting: a few strands of Christmas lights greet you in the bare-bones, narrow main bar space, while 15 smallish private rooms are located in back. It costs $9 per person per hour to rent out the rooms, which are each equipped with two mics, a big flat-screen, and saran-wrapped song books. The rooms are a bit shabby — some of the booths are ripped up — but the target demographic here isn’t sober enough to notice that type of thing. You can also sing right at the bar for $2 a song.
