Japanese-style karaoke! Rooms range in size from super-cozy up to rooms that would easily accomodate 50ish people. The typical rate is $7 / hr per person, but the larger rooms have some group rates available. All the rooms are pretty hip, with some really nice mood lighting. Song selection was fantastic - English, Japanese, Spanish, and Chinese. And browsing with an iPad is infinitely easier than figuring out some sort of crazy remote in Japanese. Reordering your song queue is easy as drag and drop. My only complaint is that the wireless microphones were picky - I had to point the microphone at the receiver in the corner of the room to be heard. I've been told they're working on it.

This was one of the first places I hit up when I first relocated here, due to it's rep alone. Well the hype is partially right. I went on a Friday night in my slut bucket get up like the rest of the chicas there. Don't judge, yall know that's what grown and sexy REALLY means for girls (tight dress, 4inch heels). Now I don't know if it's b/c I am from a small city but this place was like Hollywood to me in comparison to where I had come from. I was not used to paying 20$ to get in and 20$ to park 2 parking lots ovr, but that's the norm in Atl I see. The line was not to bad at 11:00, or lets jus say it actually moved. Happy to make it inside 40$ later for no real reason, I was so impressed by what I saw, it didn't matter. Long wrap around bar, fish tank, upstairs/downstairs, big booth seating, and FINE guys; AM I IN HEAVEN? Well this is what I thought then, cause I was green. OMG older guys around early 50's, late 40's bought my sis and I drinks like the world was ending. Younger guys hit on us in between and made for an occasional blush. One guy was there with his son and thought they were gonna tag team us, woow rly guys? It's sad when we had to play gay to get them to disappear. But ladies watch ur drinks being passed, opportune time to get spiked if not careful. It happened to my landlord here, and she ended up in ER. Yikes The DJ was 103.3 Frank Ski who did a descent job spinnin. There were a few people dancing, but most mingling. This is great for singles wanting to be seen. BEWARE of those stunting, meaning looking like money bags but broke as a joke. This place crawls with this. You can see sugar daddy's, gold diggers, stunters and bawlers all under one roof here. I wouldn't mind doing VIP here when I am feeling classy.

Hadn't been to this place since they opened and I never tried the food. The wife and I got out of the 90 degree heat and sat down at a tiny table tucked into a dark corner. Stoked. We both couldn't resist the description of the South Street burger, and ordered up two. She got the blackened green beans on the side while I went with the traditional frites. The burger was real good. Bleu cheese and sauteed onions. What took it to the awesome level for me was the brioche bun. Perfect size and a nice texture. My only complaint is that the famous Monk's mayo for the fries was a bit too salty. My wife noticed there were capers in there so maybe it was that. We washed it all down with a couple drafts, Ithaca Apricot Wheat and Lagunitas Dogtown Pale Ale. Not sure if that's named after the Venice surf/ skateboard scene that started in the 70's, but I like to think that it is. They had nine taps and a decent selection of bottles. Recommended, brah.
