New York, NY 10019
Village Voice's Description
The Japas 55 experience follows a set pattern: eat sushi, sip lychee martini, belt Lady Gaga number, repeat. The bare, minimal interior is beside the point: you go here for the 50-percent-off happy hour, the $1.50-per-song karaoke deal, and the motivating 10 p.m. last call for spicy tuna rolls. As is the Midtown way, the crowd runs slightly older and slightly bridge 'n' tunnel, but anybody in this place is capable of busting out a robust rendition of "Born This Way."
Tips from foursquare
Rooms are too expensive - sing at the bar. Weeknights are best.
Sing your heart out at Japas
Let's get some
Sing on key and make some new friends.
Just like it's sister k spot on 38, public bar with private rooms to cater to your singing desires. Staff at 38 are a bit friendlier though....
