3. THREE SHEETS BAR AND GRILL
Shots and karaoke: A dangerous combination. Or if you find yourself within the walls of Three Sheets Bar and Grill, a recipe for a damn good time. The immediate surroundings are confusingly domestic -- a laundry next door? -- but good food is to be had alongside the clever drinks in this homey atmosphere, which is dark and divey. Actually, now that we think about it, the name "Three Sheets" is pretty funny and ironic, considering that the venue's sudsy neighbor.

2. GLITTER KARAOKE
Like its name says, Glitter Karaoke's insides are bright and colorful, but the lights are low, so you won't get dizzy. And with over 140,000 songs in this Midtown joint's collection, so you'll never get bored searching for something to sing. When there's a crowd, the DJ picks crowd-pleasing favorites sure to get a singalong competition started up. There are private rooms in the back of the venue that fit groups of 10, which is good since weekends seem to pack the place.
