Lenient staff lets you bring in your own booze and raise hell in your private booth. Good selection and a ton of fun - by far the best private booth karaoke place in the city. ...


good songs and rooms, but this place is NOT byob on the weekends, and even the staff are unclear about this (we called on a sat night and the person on the phone said it was byob....

Fun, Memorable Venue For All Events 1/28/2009

Reservations for a room are hard to come by as the venue packs fast (but then you can sing for $2.00 per song in the bar area). Pros: Song Selection Cons: Space more

Great song selection! 7/28/2008

This place has all the songs that you are looking for! Drinks on the pricey side, but who cares when you are having fun with your friends. They also have specials during non-peak hours. Check it out. Highly recommended. Pros: Great song selection. Cons: Pricey drinks. more

Not as bad as other reviews would have you believe! 5/25/2008

I went here with a group of 7 friends despite reading all of the negative reviews shown here. I'm not sure if it was ridiculously high expectations that caused their negative experiences or what, but I certainly enjoyed myself! The citysearch review is actually wrong in saying that there is no alcohol served here, as there is a bar at the front with a huge karaoke screen, in addition to the private rooms. We were led to our room and asked for drink orders, although they didn't come check up on us to see if we needed any more drinks. There was a phone on the wall to call the bar but it was literally 15 feet from our room so we would just walk up to the bar instead. Our room wasn't huge but for a group of 7 it was more than sufficient. It wasn't dirty or covered in graffiti as other reviews described (maybe its a specific room?). There were two seperate song lists sorted by artist and title, and at the end of both were new, monthly lists of top singles. The karaoke equipment is not that hard to use if you aren't *ahem* challenged, you simply enter the number of the song you want and confirm. Didn't experience any rudeness from the employees, one of them actually stopped what he was doing to help me when I went to the bar to ask how much time we had used up already. Perhaps they don't treat you like you're at the Waldorf-Astoria, but then again this isn't the Waldorf-Astoria!! The only negative parts of the experience were that you have to keep track of how much time you are using yourself, and the drinks are a bit expensive ($6 Corona), though you can expect that in Manhattan...\r \r I suppose only the people with negative experiences take the time to write reviews on here, so I decided I'd post that it isn't always the case! Pros: Song list, location, room price Cons: You have to keep track of time, drink prices more

Rundown, Rude and Ridiculous 1/8/2008

This is by far, the absolute worst karaoke bar I've ever been to. I went with a group of 6 friends and we were placed in a tiny, rundown room. The cushions were full of tears, in addition to peeling paint and grafitti on the walls. Management clearly can't regulate the temperature. It was so hot, we were forced to prop the door open. At least we were the only customers at the time. Song selection was pretty good, but their electronics are difficult to operate. When we asked the man at the front desk to explain how to use the equipment, he was irritable and standoffish. Bathrooms seemed to be recently renovated, yet appeared to suffer from poor maintenance. Give them a few months and they'll look like the rest of the place. Upon depature, the same rude man was annoyed at having to attend to us instead of watching his movie. He tried to use the fact that he couldn't speak English as an excuse for poor service. Yes their prices are cheap, but except rundown rooms and terrible employees. Avoid at all costs. Pros: Price Cons: Service, Atmosphere more

not the most exciting place for karaoke 10/12/2006

i had high expectation from a place called sing sing.. they were quickly subdued.. you walk in and BAM its a homely bar and a big screen.. there's no ""singer area"", people just sing @ the bar.. i find this to be dull and it makes for a bland experience.. i've never been bored @ a k-bar on a friday night but first time for everything..\r \r i asked for a vodka+cranberry.. i basically got warm cranberry juice and enough vodka to POSSIBLY inebriate an ant.. \r \r i think its silly that they have someone that looks like a bouncer dressed in a nice black outfit @ the entrance because there is no scene here, lol.. it's like having a bouncer at mcdonalds..\r \r go somewhere else and have fun Cons: everything more

not byob on weekends 9/22/2006

good songs and rooms, but this place is NOT byob on the weekends, and even the staff are unclear about this (we called on a sat night and the person on the phone said it was byob. when we arrived, we learned it wasn't). the man at the front door was rude and said that we were lying and cheap (for bringing our own beer!). there are LOTS of karaoke places in the city--get your house in order! Pros: good rooms, song selection Cons: not byob, rude staff more

Great Rooms, Good Songs, Rude Staff 6/20/2006

Great rooms. Good song lists. But the owners need find new staff cause the dude at the desk was just unpleasant and rude. more


I had been to Sing Sing at least 3 times in the past year, each time bringing my own was fine those times although the staff were much less than friendly. This last time we follow same procedure, get a room with our beer and in comes a horrible little man telling us we cannot have beer and that they have NEVER allowed you to bring in beer...well if you read the description here on Citysearch even they say BYOB but this man was just adament and I even tried to tell him we'd pay him for OUR beer and he said no...well of course we left but people be warned before you's not BYO! more

Private karaoke 10/8/2003

Private rooms are great for those who don't want to sing infront of a bar full of strangers or wait forever for their song to come up. Great for a group of friends!! Pros: Private, Inexpensive, Don't have to wait Cons: A little seedy more

not bad, not great 10/1/2003

I had fun here because I was with fun people, but the soundproofing was bad, the bathroom was unusable, and the room was kinda grungy and our door didn't shut properly. The song selection was very good, but we didn't want to linger past an hour. I did like that we could bring our own drinks. Pros: inexpensive, BYOB Cons: somewhat rundown more

This place RULES 3/8/2003

My friends and I used to go here all the time. Its not too expensive and you basically can do whatever the hell you want and as long as you tip decently, they'll love you. more

Good time, if you want it to be 7/26/2002

This place is really what you make it to be. I had a lot of fun with my friends, we stayed there for more than 2 hours. If you dont come with a fun crowd, you'll have fun. If you're looking for a bar, or a glamorous lounge, this is not it. They give you a small room, only 2 microphones and a screen. It's not that great, but the huge selection of songs is. I had fun, I'd go there again. more
