A blue neon sign points karaoke-lovers to this basement lounge, where groups of young revelers take to the stage to shamelessly belt out Mandarin pop songs along with sing-along standards from Tina Turner and Billy Idol. Hesitant newcomers can loosen up with a specialty cocktail procured from the upstairs bar. Harness liquid courage via a Zen martini—Absolut Citron infused with green tea.

This is a weird, hole-in-the-wall spot, but it makes for a heck of a night out. The drinks are relatively inexpensive and it's alleyway location means that there's never a long line for karaoke. On a Saturday night, there's little to no crowd. It costs a dollar to sing each song, but since the space is the size of a pricey midtown karaoke room and you won't have to wait hours in between songs, it's totally worth the price.
