Belting karaoke's a great way to hog the spotlight, or if they've got a remarkably deep catalog, Spacehog it. For a brand new juke-joint letting you share just a bit, check out Muzette.
Run by a fam previously in the wildly lucrative Virginian karaoke biz, Muzette is DC's first private-roomed karaoke joint: a subterranean karao-cave with a small dining area serving homestyle Korean dishes, a long wooden bar, and a huge mural of Adams Morgan they got commissioned -- look closely, and you can find the Pissed-in Snapple. The nine private singing rooms (three large, three medium, three small) are each decked out with bench seating and dream-machines (with catalogs of 70,000 songs in multiple languages) hooked up to huge speakers, one-or-more flat screens, and two mics (third on request), and boast multiple tambourines and a server button, which won't respond to Marques Houston's repeated presses, as he's already been served. Ohhh! The kitchen's plating eats like "Ganpuongki" (a battered boneless chicken tossed in a sweet & spicy sauce), "Haemul Pa Jun" (pan-fried pancakes w/ mixed seafood/scallions/veggies and sesame dressing), and stir-fried Spicy Kimchi & Tofu, all perfect for between-karaoke noshes, or as they call them in Korea: "meals".
