    Nice place to sing and the price of happy hour drinks are cheep but their cocktails are ridiculously expensive. One cocktail cost me $10. I asked another bartender and he said it was $13. Be careful.

    Super expensive drinks if you're there outside of happy hour. Good selection of songs.

    Petra, since you're so close to Karaoke Cave and used to my "since you're so closed to.."s, this is the karaoke spot I mentioned while with your mum.

    Variable hours. Try to avoid late night visits. (They supposedly close at 1:30am on Tuesdays but at 12:30am on Thursdays.) Didn't experience any snooty bar tenders or shortened playback songs.

    Never Fail!! A Great time is always had here! Good song selection along with happening Happy Hour!

    Be prepared to sing FAST and willing to put up with only getting the first verse of your song. this place tweaks the playback

    Lindsay Ryan · January 22, 2012

    Don't sit under the speakers and don't let anyone know you were ever here.

    They have a SICK selection of songs in English, Spanish & Japanese! Nice after-work atmosphere too!

    Been coming here randomly for over a decade and I always have a great time. ENJOY! And get your sing on!

    Support your fellow singers!

    If you're here to sing, get a private room. Otherwise, be prepared to wait hours to sing your song. #Fail Best bet: Go to u2 karaoke on St marks. It's only a few blocks away.

    Stuart Tracte · February 5, 2011
  • Sweet T

    I've had so many great nights here! No need to get a room. You can usually "get by" in the main room by buying drinks in exchange for songs.

    Play karaoke roulette on Mondays.

    Don't hold the door for the rest of your party on the way out. You may be yelled at by some bitter old dude who may or may not be the bouncer

    Mike Patterson · December 19, 2010

    Major downside: "free" karaoke = the short-sighted, snooty bartenders will play your song if you throw 'em a tip as you go (and if you're a guy). NOT on your tab at the end if the night.

    Angela Dee · August 31, 2010

    Big group? Snag a private room in the back. Worth the cost to sing all the songs you want. And Elena will take care of you.

    If you manage to make friends with Elena, she will make your life a living hell...then she might buy you drink.

    Be nice to the staff and they will be nice to you. Best karaoke joint in NYC

    Watch out for this place. They will prioritize and reorder the song lists depending on if you tip them for the songs or not. Cheap but shady.

    Amazing karaoke place in the basement of Dragonfly. Sing as much as you want just be sure to buy some drinks. Small price to pay for awesomeness squared!

    OR, you must be DRINKING to be singing...that's what it says. And clearly...I am singing.

    You must be singing to be singing!!! No seriously, it says so on the wall.
