Sing Sing
A Sushi Joint with Three Karaoke Rooms

Big night last night.

Big three-day weekend ahead.

So let’s keep this short: there’s a new, Japanese-designed sushi joint over in the Avenues. It’s called Sakesan, it’s now open, and here are the three best times to get over there...

1. When you have a song in your heart.
This place has karaoke rooms. Three of ’em. And they’re spectacular: each one’s enclosed in glass, has special acoustic paneling and includes a touchscreen monitor for scrolling through songs. Plus the seats are tatami-style—tatami are those low-flung Japanese mats you see in samurai movies—for easy crowd-surfing.

2. When you’re up for some creative sushi.
They’ve got 50 rolls awaiting your beck and call. There’s a tempura-shrimp-and-seaweed number called the Angry Bird (for some reason). There’s the Long King—baked salmon with garlic cream sauce over a California roll. There’s... 48 more.

3. When you need some liquid courage.
Here’s how it’ll go down. You walk in. You spy the 25-foot-long bar. (You can’t miss it; it’s a 25-foot-long bar.) You order some soju. You order a nearly two-liter bottle of sake. You make friends. You and those friends belt out “More Than a Feeling” in a glass-enclosed karaoke room.

And it feels like victory.
