    Most disrespectful experience I've had with a bartender, who come to later find out is also the owner. If I could give zero stars, I would. Don't plan on singing either if you don't pay for your song.

    Sound system was great and a big book with plenty of options for karaoke. Creepy second floor location well worth it!

    This place CAN be fun if you have a full wallet. DJs won't play your song unless you tip them. Big. #GreedyAssholes

    This place sucks. Been here for 2 hours and the same group of people took the stage 4 times and we didn't get to go. We felt frustrated and left. I recommend spending your time and money elsewhere.

    The DJ here is SUCH a dick. It's 7pm, nobody is here and he won't take more than "1 song". #ControlFreak

    Don't plan on singing if you don't tip. It's all about the Benjamins with the guys running the show...

    Come early and sign up, the waiting list fills up fast (but you can always tip the KJ to get bumped up a few spots).

    Get there early to get the most stage time. Also, don't forget to tip the DJ (KJ?)

    Try and get there before 10pm if you're looking to sing anytime soon without dropping some serious cash into the tip jar. That said, it's worth the wait!

    Don't every go here!!!!! A group of friend were hassled, and eventually assaulted by the bouncers. It's not a safe place.

    Be prepared to drink: karaoke is only for people who buy drinks at the bar and there are no alternatives if you want to sing.
