    They certainly have some next lvl karaoke rooms. Open karaoke at the bar is great too! $1/song

    Private karaoke rooms with a strict policy on time. Once your two hours are up you will be offered one hour for 10$ a head without booze or 20$ a head with booze.

    Halp Hour!

  • Alex K.

    Get a private room and karaoke to your heart's content. The price of scotch is really reasonable!

    Alex Kremer · August 27, 2014
  • Josh S.

    I love that they let you get your own drinks at the bar even if you are in a private room.

    Josh Saletnik · August 22, 2014

    Don't eat the sushi.

    Don't eat the food!!

  • Jeff Z.

    They are super selective on weekends. Don't be fooled

    Jeff Zappala · March 8, 2014
  • Jason R.

    They can handle large groups

    Had a great time sang my heart out

  • Tina Lauren L.

    If u're not a karaoke expert & don't feel like getting up in front of a group of people this spot is perfect. They pass around the mic & u can sing at ur table, by the bar or in a circle of friends.

    Tina Lauren Lopez · December 14, 2013
  • Robert S.

    Sitting at the bar is good. Getting Mika and masa's attention is better

    Robert Schleihauf · September 2, 2013
  • Chihaya

    We found their basic party package was a good deal :)

    Chihaya · August 11, 2013
  • Philip N.

    Score about 95 on your Karaoke and get a free drink!

    Philip Nelson · July 23, 2013

    We're not gonna take it! NO! We're not gonna take it anymore!!

    Love Japas 38! Jun was the best - such a friendly guy and treated us well for the 3 hours we were there. I used to lived in Japan and this is my favorite karaoke box in NYC.

    Lien Tran · April 29, 2013
  • Jeff Z.

    Pick 1 song on a weekend. That's all you'll get.

    Jeff Zappala · January 12, 2013
  • Dramane B.

    Great time! The party pack is well worth it.

    Dramane Brown · December 30, 2012
  • Yasmine G.

    The Fugees' Killing Me Softly is a free drink winning song on Tues nights.

    Yasmine Gomez · December 12, 2012
  • Jennifer S.

    Fun place for karaoke. Good space at main bar and the rooms are also quite good!

    Jennifer Shafran · September 15, 2012
  • Lucius K.

    Japanese restaurant during lunch, karaoke bar at night. The lunch specials are worth coming here for.

    Lucius Kwok · July 20, 2012
  • Rubina F.

    Come for Happy Hour and get a ridiculous, huge tropical drink for less than $5.

    Rubina Fillion · March 10, 2012
  • Aron F.

    You can't hear the mics at this place so if you actually want to hear what people are singing go somewhere else. When you ask them to turn it up they don't know what to do.

    Aron Feingold · February 17, 2012
  • Sugeiry R.

    Horrible place!!! The staff in this location is horrible and very unprofessional. Went here with a large party and will never go back.

    Sugeiry Rodriguez · January 29, 2012
  • Joanne K.

    I recommend the miso soup! Delish!

    Joanne Kendall · December 12, 2011
  • ºDamian W.

    Unlimited alcohol, songs, private room, some sushi...did I die and go to heaven?!?!

    ºDamian White º · October 9, 2011
  • Joanne K.

    I recommend the plum wine highly!

    Joanne Kendall · October 4, 2011
  • Patti K.

    Song list isn't so great. Go to chorus on 32nd.

    Patti Kilroy · July 6, 2011
  • Erin G.

    Not a fan. Long story, don't ask questions.

    Erin Gleason · May 31, 2011
  • Kate L.

    No Beastie Boys or 'Only the Good Die Young'! That's like sacrilegious.

    Kate L · April 29, 2011
  • Jazmin H.

    Party Packages are the best deal. Reserve 24 hours in advance with 4+ for the alcohol + appetizer + private room setup of your choice. Ranges from $25-$45/person depending.

    Jazmin Hupp · April 2, 2011
  • Warren W.

    3527-12. It's on.

    Warren Wan · October 21, 2010
  • Tony K.

    Great place for parties...food is ok....but well worth the money for the drinks and a private room for karaoke!

    Tony Kitch · August 29, 2010
  • Michael M.

    Good song selection but the crowd at Chorus seems to chose more upbeat songs.

    Michael M · July 24, 2010
  • Levi R.

    Great sushi great karaoke!

    Levi Ruppert · June 26, 2010
  • Bill V.

    I would keep walking to 32nd to Chorus karoke. Music selection wasn't that good (didn't have "I'm on a boat" :-( ) and had a poor atmosphere.

    Bill Van Pelt · May 24, 2010
  • Eddie M.

    Get there before 7pm. Half price drinks and pitchers of beer.

    Eddie Mansfield · March 31, 2010
  • Mike H.

    Awesome Saki Bomb/Karaoke Place. I highly suggest to never order the all-you-can-eat fried food platter. It's like an apocalypse to your stomach lining.

    Mike Horn · March 1, 2010
  • Katie S.

    best karaoke in manhattan - go right after work for their half price house wine and beer happy hour

    Katie Safrey · September 20, 2009
  • Erik N.

    4040-02, do it.

    Erik Nordlander · May 21, 2009
  • Josh W.

    Go get splintered - order sushi - sing songs that you shouldn't - have a sushi-fight (or not) - and try not to break stuff

    Josh Whelchel · March 30, 2009
  • Jeremy W.

    I spent most of 2007 at this Karaoke den, swillin sake bombs and singing myself hoarse to Mr Roboto and The Pixies. All-you-can-drink beer + sake + karaoke $25/person for two hours
