Arts & Entertainment: Music Venues
Mirrors ring this vast club, amplifying the dim lighting and multiplying images from a set of big-screen plasma TVs. Not in the mood to dance? Grab a seat on a couch and ask for the wine list.
The unassuming exterior belies a cozy bar that takes its karaoke seriously. Weekends, the amateurs step aside for live solo and duo acts, which perform oldies and contemporary pop hits on a small stage.
