Wicked Willy’s is not a proper karaoke bar—there are no private rooms—but it does host amateur performers Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at around 8pm. “It’s the only place I know where you can play beer pong and sing karaoke,” says regular Alex Salazar. The extensive song list carries the latest Lady Gaga–laced pop hits (“P-p-poker face, p-p-poker face, mum mum mum mah!”), a decent selection of Spanish songs and most of the staples. Performers also get a free drink with the first song they sing—presumably to help steady those nerves. Should the caterwauling overwhelm your fancy ears, there is a large projection screen in the back for taking in the Yankees game.
