Best Karaoke

1.7th Generation

123-129 W. 27th St., (410) 467-1717

Posted 9/20/2006

This nondescript Korean bar at the corner of Howard and 27th streets in no way suggests the karaoke promised land that awaits you inside. At first glance it looks like any other bar, except that there are big-screen televisions all over the place and the music playing is not that great. With delight you'll realize that the reason for the bad music is that your fellow bar patrons are providing the entertainment. But not in that annoying karaoke "everybody look at me while I butcher this Bon Jovi song at the top of my lungs" kind of way. Instead people sign up for songs at the bar, and the bartender walks the microphone around so that when it's your turn you can just put down your drink and sing from your seat; the big screens let you read the lyrics from anywhere in the bar. If the lack of a stage is still not enough to give you the courage to sing, order a pitcher of lemon soju and you'll end up choreographing a group sing-along to "Bohemian Rhapsody" before you know it.
