This long, wooden bar is helmed by a few middle-aged women who, on Sundays, mix huge batches of kamikazes and sell them for $2 a pop—but the real draw here is karaoke. If you get there and the door’s locked, don’t get discouraged. Just ring the bell over and over again (sometimes the bartenders can’t hear it over yet another version of “Don’t Stop Believin’”).

Let's goooooo! Alice's is absolutely the best karaoke bar in the city. I'll put money on it and so will anyone else who's been in there. Be sure to have a few drinks in you before you get there to soften the hard notes of the drunk person singing Cindy Lauper on the microphone, then grab yourself a Żywiec (pronounced "Ziv - itch" and start to genuinely enjoy it. You can croon to your favorite songs, but only if you pick the right one. The Polish man who has been running the karaoke show picks from the sea of submissions as he damn well pleases. And that's just fine with me.
