With a drop ceiling and offices lining one side, the bar that vets open to the public on Friday and Saturday nights for karaoke has all the charm of a middle-school classroom. Luckily, sassy karaoke MC Bill Nowlin fills the stark room with his smooth singing voice, and if he likes your pipes, you earn a ring from his bell. Cool your jets with a $3 gin and tonic till the party people arrive after midnight. Plus, free bowls of hot, buttery popcorn fortify you to belt out a few more songs.
