There’s not much walking weather left this year, so why not make the most of it by combining two of the city’s greatest pastimes – karaoke and endurance boozing – with a hearty stroll? More musical than your usual pub crawl and more aerobic than your average karaoke night, our Karaoke Krawl™ gives you the freedom to pick the songs you really wanna sing without worrying about killing the vibe or embarrassing yourself – just move on to the next spot!
Refer to the map for our route, or create your own!
A. Winnie’s – Start off at Winnie’s, a low-key, no-pressure Chinatown dive. Folks are
too busy chatting in the enormous booths to pay attention to your warm-up song.
B. Baby Grand – Come prepared – they have a secret song list you can draw from.
Best to hit this place up before you get too sloshed – it can get cramped, fast. Be
warned: no private rooms here.**
C. Karaoke BoHo – These dudes mean business – they claim to have over 80,000
songs in Filipino, French, German, Hindi, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Thai,
Vietnamese, Japanese, Hebrew, and Russian. Luckily, you can search their entire
list online beforehand. Needless to say, if you’re gonna get international, this is the
D. Second on Second – No one wants to join you for your Aladdin duet?
Preposterous! Eh, that’s okay – the DJs (KJs?) here will join you more often than not.
E. Sing Sing – $5 jello shots. Also songs. By now you will be drunk enough to have
forgotten the songs you picked out from their website beforehand, but that’s okay
because the jello shots will no doubt inspire even better choices.
F. Planet Rose – Consistently listed as one of NY’s best karaoke joints, and for good
reason. Lots of space, crazy décor, and it’s only a few blocks away from iHop – the
perfect place for your post-crawl binge!
**Monday night bonus: Stop at Arlene’s Grocery (on Stanton btwn Orchard and
Ludlow) for rock & roll karaoke with a live band. Make sure to sign up early – their
list fills up fast.
