Lesser known than some other karaoke spots, this cavernous room situated above a homely restaurant offers a large snack menu and plenty of space to stretch out. At the top of the staircase, a glitzed-out hostess in her fifties takes your name and seats you, then sings along with the participants while smacking a tambourine at the front of the huge stage.

Spacious enough to accommodate an entire roller derby team (we speak from experience), the high stage platform overlooks a low-lit room flanked by a more traditionally Japanese shoes-off dining section, and as such, singers are often barefoot. Drinks are mostly of the standard Brazilian beer and domestic sake variety, but there are some mixed drinks, like a White Russian. As for the eats, the tray of tempura is substantial, fancifully arranged in a fan shape, and tastier than you would expect in a place where people drop their chopsticks to mount the stage for a bit of impromptu backup singing. The wait for singing is reasonably brief, and the waiting staff is attentive.
