Just went here last night for a bday party for myself and a friend. We walked out very dissapointed. The bigggest problem was the song list. I don't think it has been updated in about 3 years. I am not the type of person to be very picky either. I mean billy joel...uptown girl? Really? And nothing too modern in the song books at all. I was searching for song after song, only to be dissapointed and find nothing at all. We had a group of 18 of us in there and this sadly seemed to be the theme of the evening....Oh I have a great song I wanna sing!....oh they don't have it =( I will say that this is BY FAR the worst selection of songs I have seen in the city.
Also almost everythign was in Korean too. The remote control for the Karaoke machine was in all Korean. If you do a lot of karaoke ( I do ), you might have experienced this before...but usually there is a lot an english explanation for the remote! no such luck here folks.
The room also was supposed to hold 20/25, but w/ 18 of us in there we were cramped. I can't really hold this too much against them though as that has been my experience at any karaoke place. BUT the room was easily 100 degrees and there was NO A/C in the room! I mean in the middle of the summer in NYC, I'm sorry but that is just insane. We asked them 10 times about the A/C and begged them...even tried to bribe them....to put the A/C on. They claimed it was on, but that it had to go to all the rooms. We held out hands the vents, NO air coming out.
To add to all of this, this was the most expensive place I've ever been to.
All in all a pretty dissapointing experience. Me and my entire group will never be returning to this joint. Especially when there's a million more, even in Korea town to go to. I will say that if you are Korean (and can read/write Korean) you might enjoy this place sliiiiightly more, because their korean song selection was better. Hope this helps...happy singing!
Pros: Modern rooms, good if you are Korean, ummmm
Cons: NO Air conditioning, NO song selection, no english, Pricey
