Neighborhoods: Civic Center / Little Tokyo, Downtown, Central LA
Relaxing atmosphere, sociable crowd and great service takes precedence over free karaoke when it comes to drawing in the Little Tokyo locals. – In Short
This small, super casual spot is dimly lit and defined by dated decor, including seventies-style light fixtures, old wooden surfaces and colorful streamers. The place is divided into two sections. At the bar, mingling takes place among the mostly male laid-back late-20-somethings to mid-30-somethings bonding over Miller Lite. For the aspiring singers--or plain and simple drunk people--there's also a small karaoke area, but most of the action takes place at the bar. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive, which could be why people tend to stay close-by.
Hits: The place doesn't get too over-crowded, so if karaoke is your game, you won't have to wait hours and hours to have a shot at the mic. And you can sing your heart out for free, as long as you purchase at least two drinks.
Misses: The bar offers a small selection of beer and wine, plus most types of liquor, but not many different brands. The bartenders themselves aren't aware of many drink concoctions--just the basics.
