Isn’t it enough to watch your colleagues and family members humiliate themselves? Why stoop to the level of dragging them down dimly lit halls to the dank private rooms at East Village debauchery dens Sing Sing and Village Karaoke? Equally embarrassing—but far more wholesome—fun can be found in the large, bright rooms at Congee Village. Not quite as outlandish as the fake tropical paradise upstairs, the four party rooms in the basement still feature the restaurant’s trademark bamboo-overload décor and amazingly fresh and tasty Cantonese cuisine. Each contains a karaoke machine with thousands of songs in English, Chinese, and Japanese, or you can bring your own CDs. Asian businessmen typically loosen up with multiple toasts of mao-tai (at 80 proof, stronger than sake)—but why rush? You can get the room for eight hours if the place isn't busy ($400 minimum for ten people), and watching your boss belt out “Hotel California” is a moment you’ll want to remember in the morning.
