This is my first time at this place, and I am really liking it. The decor is very nice - classy Irish pub with just a hint of Old West whorehouse.
They start at 8, which is good for us amateur singers who still have day jobs. They're right by O'Hare and apparently they get a lot of business travelers. Consequently, at least tonight, there were tons of people and very few singers. That's perfect for me, since by inclination I'll get up as often as they'll let me.
In addition, the KJ is John, the owner of Extreme Karaoke. He's got a good sound system and the best songbook I've encountered to date.
I intend to return.
