I've been there many times, never left without buying at least three drinks, heck, even ordered food from them every now and then... They have a two drink minimum for karaoke singers, and I was still on my first one. I rarely drink, so I usually order soda. First, when I got there, there were 4 others sitting at the bar, none of them requiring anything, and the bartender was moving around the bar. I realise she had things to do, but after making eye contact with her a few times and speaking up a couple, I still stood there for almost ten minutes before she served me. Then, when I got up to sing my second song with 1/2 of my drink still there, Tammy, the karaoke host, gave me the mic, but before she would start the song, she called me back over to her. "Have you ordered your second drink yet?" she asked. I told her I wasn't done with my first one yet, but yes, I would be ordering a second. Her reply: "Well, technically, I'm not even allowed to let you sing until you've had at least two drinks." Affronted, I assured her that I would be ordering my second, then she finally let me sing. When I was done, I went back to the bar to finish my soda, but the bartender had dumped it out! I guess that's the way they treat people there... Especially if you're not a big money maker for them because you mostly just drink soda like I do. Not to mention the way that, even though my karaoke slip was the third up at the beginning of the night, I mysteriously wound up being 11th on the list... and skipped a few times to allow HER FRIENDS extra turns. I recommend going someplace else in the neighborhood, such as Driftwood, Fenderskirts, or Al J's, all down the street and much better.
